Groundbreaking Ceremony for the New KSL-Facility in Bensheim, Germany

PFAFFWith the official groundbreaking ceremony on March 7, 2019, PFAFF Industriesysteme und Maschinen GmbH (KSL branch office) laid the foundation for a successful future. With the new 8,000 sqm-facility (5,000 sqm production hall and an administration building featuring 3,000 sqm across 3 floors) in the Stubenwald/Bensheim commercial zone the company creates the basis for the further expansion of the high-tech system solutions for the automated processing of technical textiles, leather and composites sold under the KSL-brand as well as the increase of jobs from currently 100 to 160 highly-qualified employees.

PFAFFFollowing the scheduled completion in late 2019, the latest CNC-sewing systems, 3D-sewing robots, multi-needle systems, and fully automated production lines that are increasingly demanded by the customers in the automation context are to be developed, manufactured, and marketed in the new location. The core of the new facility is the "Laboratory", a competence center that is unique in the industry and acts as an interface between complex customer inquiries and the robot and CNC-technologies. The investment in the new building totals EUR 10 million.

PFAFF Industriesysteme und Maschinen GmbH is a 100 % subsidiary of the DA Group (Dürkopp Adler AG, Bielefeld, Germany) who is the developer of the project. The DA Group, in turn, is part of the ShangGong Group Co., Ltd. (Shanghai, China) with 3,500 employees in 22 locations worldwide.

"With this new building we make it clear that we will continue to force and expand the technological leadership regarding automation, CNC and robotics," says Alfred Wadle, Chairman of the Management Board of PFAFF Industriesysteme und Maschinen GmbH.
