The time has come! After months of hard work, the production in our new factory in Hilden has began! In the last few weeks the lasers and bending machines have been installed, offices have been painted and the final points will be finished in the next few days. The new employees have been trained for months in our factory in Varsseveld to ensure the usual 247TailorSteel quality standards and we are ready to produce laser cutting and bending products for our customers 24/7.
The machine park of 247TailorSteel grows with the new production facility to 37 laser cutting machines and 20 bending machines on a total production floor of 36,000 m². Hilden will initially be equipped with 3 laser cutting machines, 2 bending machines and 1 machine for deburring. In a first step, the construction of the new production facility will create 35 new jobs, and around 130 employees are expected to be hired in the medium term.
Thanks to the new production facility, our growing number of German customers will soon benefit from even better service and faster delivery. You place your order 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in our Sophia® online portal. This will be delivered within 48 hours or at the time you request! We are expected to be fully operational in the third quarter of 2020.
