Sandler AG sets the course for the future

As of recently, the building of a new plant is in full swing. Last autumn, extensive preparatory excavation works were already undertaken which continued as far as possible during the harsh winter. Currently, the actual construction works are the centre of attention.

In spring 2009 Sandler AG's management board decided to pull forward this 40-million-Euro investment which had originally been scheduled for 2011 in the context of long-term corporate planning.

The construction of the 150m long, 70m wide and 20m high two-story building necessitated further building projects. Apart from the creation of a 20.000 m2 biotope to the north-east of the company premises additional on-site roads, bridges and parking areas had to be built.

Already in autumn 2010, an additional new spunlace production line will be commissioned, designated for the production of a new generation of wipes as well as nonwovens for technical applications. This investment will create more than 60 jobs during the next two years. Commercial nonwovens production is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2011.

With this investment, Sandler AG will become the largest manufacturing site for wipes substrates. Even today, the company is among the largest nonwovens producers worldwide and ranks 13th internationally when it comes to turnover. Sandler AG is today the only lager family-owned nonwovens manufacturer in Europe.

Contrary to the overall sectoral trend to establish new production sites worldwide, the company management considered the pooling of technologies and know-how in one location to be valuable factors in favour of its hometown Schwarzenbach.

Remaining true to its origins, Sandler AG will thus expand its company location in Schwarzenbach/Saale to be one of the largest production sites for nonwovens worldwide by the end of this year.

Clearly visible, 85 pillars jut into the sky, each of them about 20 meters high and weighing at least 32 tonnes. 38 so-called roof trusses, 35 meters in length and weighing 40 tonnes will rest upon these pillars, as will the intermediate ceiling.
