From the end of April, Wittmann Battenfeld France will be located at a new address. The staff of the Wittmann subsidiary is moving into their newly constructed building in La Buisse, Arrondissement Grenoble, about 5 km from their present domicile in Moirans.
The Wittmann Group has been active in the French market with its own subsidiary since 1996. The original product portfolio included robots and automation solutions together with temperature control and bulk material technology. In 2000, the granulator producer CMB, domiciled in Oyonnax, was taken over and successfully integrated into the Wittmann Group. Since then, the French subsidiary has been responsible for the development, production and servicing of the entire range of granulators from Wittmann.
Meanwhile, Wittmann Battenfeld France has also established itself as a specialist for automation systems, IML solutions and auxiliary appliances. With its takeover of Battenfeld in 2008, the Wittmann Group became a single-source supplier of injection molding machines and complex production cells.
Due to its rapid growth over recent years, the company already started to look for another site for a new corporate building with room for further expansion. The ideal location was found in La Buisse, not far from the present facility, and construction started in mid-2018.
On an area of some 5,000 m², office facilities, training and conference rooms, a 400-square-meter showroom, as well as warehouse space and a production hall to manufacture granulators according to the latest standards of technology were built, with a capital investment of more than 5 million Euros. This offers the company’s more than 70 staff members a working environment to enhance their creativity and teamwork and to provide even better support for local customers.
Fabien Chambon, Managing Director and CEO of Wittmann Battenfeld France, comments: “We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming our customers at our new, modern facilities from the end of April.”
