The KHS Group, the provider of filling and packaging systems, has invested €20 million in modernizing its headquarters on Juchostraße in Dortmund, Germany. In a bundle of measures underway since 2015, the company has built a huge, approximately 4,300 square meter production shop and fully renovated another.

Key elements of the modernization included extending the production area and renewing the machine park. At its production site on Juchostraße KHS has erected a completely new production shop. In an area measuring 4,300 square meters, the system’s supplier has now created conditions that enable the relevant technology for container and pack conveyors to be merged and order processing to become more efficient.

KHS has also modernized one of the oldest production buildings on the company premises. With an investment volume of six million euros for this project alone the engineering company has not only renewed the shop floor and roof; it also optimized its sheet metal manufacturing department housed in the hall, incorporating new technology that includes a faster, more efficient fiber laser, a combined punching/laser machine and a larger, fully networked sheet metal warehouse.

For KHS, the modernization is a big commitment to the production facilities on Juchostraße, says plant manager Joachim Konrad. “The Dortmund plant is extremely important to the KHS Group, also because of its standing as our international company headquarters. With our investments, we’re making it fit for the future. This sends out a strong signal to the regional economy.”
