Tiltrotator firm Engcon
is spending £1.5 million expanding its production facilities in Poland to meet demand. The firm recently completed work on a new factory in Sweden and is now starting work on another factory extension by revamping its facility in Poland. This is to meet demand for tiltrotators in Europe, especially in France, Holland and the UK.
The firm says it built its factory at Niepruszewo in Poland in 2012 to meet growing demand for buckets, ground compactors, grabbers and welded components. The extension has added 1,000m2 to the factory, which will host a new assembly hall, testing facilities and an expanded space for processing, sheet metal cutting and burring. The office section has also been extended.
In 2003, Engcon decided to establish a strategic presence in Poland and to start up manufacturing operations in the country. The company leased a factory building and began production. As the factory expands its capacity, it looks to the factory in Strömsund, which recently implemented a completely automatic testing facility. This concept is currently being replicated in Poland for the products manufactured there.
