Schunk set to invest €85m

Schunk is preparing for the next step of its global growth, with around €85m set to be invested at locations in Brackenheim-Hausen, Mengen and St Georgen in Germany, along with Morrisville in the US, by mid-2020.


The move will create around 42,000 sq m of additional production and administration space. The process started with the US plant in North Carolina, where the new buildings were officially handed over a few weeks ago. As well as expanding the production area, Schunk Intec USA created a generous new administrative building that, through its open architecture, encourages and inspires creativity and lateral thinking.
In addition, €40m is being put into the Competence Centre for Gripping Systems in Brackenheim-Hausen, just 5km from Schunk’s headquarters in Lauffen. The expansion will cover an area of 22,000 sq m and represents a doubling of the existing production area. Schunk is also investing another €30m in the Competence Centre for Lathe Chuck Technology and Stationary Workholding in Mengen, in the district of Sigmaringen. Here, 12,000 sq m will be added for production, research and development. Finally, €5m will be invested at the St Georgen site in the Black Forest, where the production area will double with an increase of 4200 sq m.
