To reduce the complexity and improve its competitiveness, Oras Group plans to restructure its European production. The company plans to close down the Burglengenfeld plant. The corresponding production is planned to be relocated into the Group other European plants. The company states that this increases its capacity utilization rate, improves its cost structure as well as secures the group’s competence in customer experience.  

“To improve our capacity utilization rates, we have to concentrate our production volumes as few locations as possible. This will also contribute to reduction of the current complexity in our internal logistics and to thus once again increasing our competitiveness,” states Dipl.-Ing. Kari Lehtinen, President and CEO of Oras Group, of which Hansa Armaturen GmbH is a part.

Oras Group plans to close down the Burglengenfeld plant and relocate the corresponding production into its other plants in Europe.
