Groundbreaking ceremony for further expansion!
Last Thursday saw the groundbreaking ceremony for the new assembly hall of HAGE Sondermaschinenbau and HAGE3D at Obdach. The new assembly hall also includes 800 m² office space, which means even shorter paths between assembly and administration at HAGE3D. By the end of 2019, the construction project will be completed. In the first expansion stage, the hall has 800 m² of office space, 1,800 m² of assembly space, including two heavy-duty cranes and 12 meters in height. Also the Styrian economics councilor Barbara Eibinger-Miedl was present at the ground-breaking ceremony and found words of praise for HAGE:
“HAGE is a major regional leader. The current expansion is an important investment in the future that will secure existing jobs and create new ones at Obdach. This ensures quality of life and strengthens the region sustainably. I thank Florian and Stefan Hampel and the entire HAGE team for their strong commitment to the business location of Styria!”
In-house Academy & Gym
In addition to production and office space, there will also be training rooms for the HAGE Academy, where young employees get supported and trained by experienced colleagues and external experts. In addition, an in-house gym will be built upstairs.
“The new building gives us the opportunity to continue to produce our large-scale plants and industrial printers here in Obdach and to secure our existing jobs. Currently, we have almost 6,000 m² of production space. We are deep rooted to the region and appreciate the quality of our specialists! ” – Florian Hampel, Managing Director HAGE Sondermaschinenbau GmbH.
