60 years of GRAF - Milestones of a success story:
Opening of the factory in Neuried
On July 18, we opened our factory in Neuried (Ortenaukreis). The production facility and logistics center will employ around 80 people in the future. Neuried is our fourth location in the region and is conveniently situated between Teningen, the Competence Center Raw Materials in Herbolzheim and the factory in Dachstein (Alsace). This will enable us to save more than 2,000 truck trips per year.
GRAF Ireland Environmental Ltd.
In recent years, GRAF has continuously expanded its international sales activities. In order to be even more efficiently positioned in Ireland in the future and to further expand its leading position in the field of stormwater management, GRAF Ireland Environmental Ltd. was founded on January 01, 2020. The company is based in Milltown near Galway.
Opening of the GRAF Competence Center Raw Materials in Herbolzheim
Investments exceeding €30m will give rise in Herbolzheim to the Graf Kompetenzzentrum Rohstoffe. On 6.5 hectares of land, the new building will cover about 24,000 m2 and have twelve raw material silos, each 30 m high. There, Graf will be converting secondary resources of plastic into high quality re-granulate.
The Graf Group, Teningen, is taking over the company Sotralentz in Skierniewice, Poland. The company will operate under the name Graf Polska. This takeover sees the Graf Group extending its expertise for local wastewater disposal and consolidating its market positioning as the leading provider of water management systems in Europe.
Commissioning of two latest generation rotary presses
At the Dachstein plant, we invested in two rotary machines of the latest generation. These completely automated machines set new benchmarks for quality and energy efficiency. Further investments in a new silo plant and three injection moulding machines were made at the Teningen plant.
Expansion of the production site in Teningen
Construction of a second, brand-new production site in Teningen. Around €20 million is invested in the expansion of production and logistics facilities over an area of 155,000 square metres. The new plant, with a surface area of 13,500 square metres, is home to one of the world's most modern manufacturing facilities for plastic products.
