Scanfil’s factory in Wutha-Farnroda in Germany will increase by 2,200 m². The expansion is estimated to be in production use during the second quarter of 2022. The existing factory is 4,500 m² and employs approximately 270 professionals.
“We are glad to announce us growing in Wutha, in the heart of Germany. Our factory is well located and close to our customers and their R&D,” the CEO of Scanfil Petteri Jokitalo states. “Growth expectations have improved significantly and gave us the confidence to invest more in Wutha.”
The adjoining building is now under construction to meet an EMS service provider's high-quality requirements. Some of our customers in Wutha come from the medical sector, which has the most demanding standard for production quality and precision.
“The majority of our customers come from the automation and safety sector, but there are also good growth prospects in medical and cleantech,” says Dr. Heribert Raaf, the Managing Director of the Wutha factory. “In the future, with the new capacity the high requirements of the customers are met even better than before and we are ready for the growth.”
With the expansion, the factory will become an even stronger partner for the Central European and German customers. It has been one of the leading close-to-customer R&D factories and the investment improves its capabilities e.g. in New Product Introduction (NPI), fast prototyping and Design for Manufacturing (DFM) even further.
