Sulzer inaugurated a new manufacturing site for Applicator Systems products in Wrocļaw, Poland. Strong growth in the adhesives and dental segments, for which Sulzer markets products commercially under the brand Mixpac, required additional production capacities. The new site will generate more than 100 new jobs.
The new site with 6 300 m2 of manufacturing space is Sulzer s new hub in the heart of Europe for cartridges and mixers for adhesive customers around the world. The new site will significantly increase the production capacity for adhesives systems of the Sulzer Applicator Systems division. Sulzer chose Wrocļaw because the city offers a strong business environment, a large talent pool and great infrastructure for logistics.
The leased, made-for-purpose manufacturing facility required an investment of about PLN 10 million (close to CHF 3 million) for state-of-the-art injection molding and assembly machines.
This new site will allow Sulzer’s production facility in Haag, Switzerland, to reallocate capacity to its focus on products for the dental and healthcare markets. Sulzer recently strengthened its position in these markets with the acquisitions of Transcodent and Medmix.
Sulzer’s CEO Greg Poux-Guillaume said: “This investment in additional manufacturing capacity confirms our belief in the strong prospects of our Applicator Systems adhesives, dental and healthcare segments.”
