Horn's headquarters in Tübingen, Germany, is doubling its capacity by adding 12,000 m² of new production space. By the time it is ready for occupation at the end of 2016, a total of 55 million euros will have been invested in the new site, which is located close to the existing production facilities. As a result, HORN will have created the biggest industrial building in the area.

To reinforce its position on the global market and continue growing at the same rapid pace as in recent years, it needed to find enough new space to allow further expansion of production with a view to assuring the future of the business – in Tübingen. “Our plan is to grow significantly over the next few years as well,” says Lothar Horn, managing director of Paul Horn GmbH and Horn Hartstoffe GmbH. 

Toolholder production, the coating department, and logistics will occupy the additional space when they move into the new building at the end of 2016. The future logistics center will offer three times the capacity of the existing one so that the fastest possible customer delivery lead times can be ensured, according to the company.
