The French subsidiary JMPV doubles its production to 800 m².
After merely five months of construction, the new workshop expansion and new office complex for the French subsidiary in the JOEST group was finalized in January 2020. Alongside the new buildings, the existing structures were also optimized.
Construction started in late May, 2019 at the facility in La Couronne, France. The new 54 m² office building that is replacing the existing, 20 year old office bungalow is part of the 520.000€ investment. The 400 m² steel workshop expansion is equipped with a 12.5 t crane. The entire workshop area now covers 800 m². The old workshop was supplemented by an intermediate ceiling, making room for a kitchen and additional toilets for the employees.
In order to heat the workshop efficiently, a new heating system was installed. The so called dark radiators are very energy efficient and cause only little condensation. All lights inside and outside the facility were upgraded to LEDs. In January 2020, the new asphalt driveways were paved. They are now suitable for heavy-duty vehicles. Furthermore, the entire property was fenced.
The JOEST Subsidiary was founded in 2006 and managed by Armin Krey. The company is mainly focused on vibrating screens, feeders, spiral elevators, MUCKI® lifting and tipping devices. These machines are for the Primary and Secondary Raw Materials, Chemistry, Food and Thermal Processing Industries.
The facility expansion and investment in France is of great importance to the international market. Establishments on all continents enable JOEST to globally offer the technology and service it is known for and to meet international demands and expectations.
