Yet another reason to celebrate - emz inaugurates an extension building in the Czech Republic

Last week, the company emz celebrated an amazing success story at their site in the town of Cernosin (district of Tachov, region of Pilsen).

The 20th anniversary and, at the same time, the inauguration of the extension building on a surface of over 2,400 sq.m. is an event which provides hope and courage for the future, states site manager Anton Grabinger.

It is the starting signal for a continued economic upswing of emz-Hanauer which secures jobs and makes working conditions more modern and pleasant. Due to the past years' steady growth, the extension building at the first foreign site - approx. one hour's drive from Nabburg - became a necessity.
For this reason, the production area for manufacturing high-quality products has been enlarged, the storage area has been extended by two storage rooms with three doors for incoming and outgoing goods, the staff canteen has been enlarged and a new training room has been built.
Following a construction period of only seven months, trial operations was started back in late May 2017, and in August, the construction obtained final approval. The investment amounted to over EUR 2 million in total.

The site started up in July, 1997, in rented rooms with a staff of only five who assembled products for washing machines.
In the meantime, the headcount has increased to 230 employees and automated processes have been implemented. Today, the major household appliance customers, including BSH Hausgeräte, Miele, Electrolux, Whirlpool, Midea, Haier, Samsung and LG-Electronics are supplied from Cernosin.

In the scope of these celebrations, Thomas Hanauer, the Head of Operation International Veit Schmucker and Anton Grabinger honoured longstanding employees for 20 years at "emz Hanauer Cernosin“ and their resulting commitment.
Special thanks were expressed towards the employees for their sustained loyalty. "This is something we are very proud of!“, stated Thomas Hanauer, Managing Director of emz-Hanauer GmbH & Co. KGaA.
