Preforming machinery specialist Fill GmbH (Gurten, Austria) reports that it will expand its production facility, adding 5,000m2 for machine and systems assembly. The electrical workshop area also will be doubled in size. A total of €7.5 million is being invested in the company's headquarters, with completion scheduled for late March 2018.

"With the enlargement of our production facility, we are creating sufficient space for optimum assembly conditions in light of increasing demands on capacity," explains proprietor and CEO Andreas Fill. The work is progressing swiftly, and the topping-out ceremony was held in late November. As things stand, the halls will be completely enclosed, the roof mounted, and the gates and doors installed in the first half of December this year. By the end of 2017, the new assembly halls will be winterproof. The interior works will then commence at the beginning of next year. All three hall sections will be completed successively by the end of March.

Andreas Fill and Wolfgang Rathner are joint CEOs of the company founded in 1966, which is still completely family-owned and now has about 800 employees. In 2016, the company recorded sales of €145 million.
