VMI Group expands following strong sales growth

Leading tyre building machinery maker VMI Group is planning to “significantly expand” its operations. This means a new factory building will be constructed in Epe, The Netherlands and current buildings will be restructured to enhance lean production. A new R&D and engineering office will also be built. In China, VMI reports that it is working with authorities to expand its facilities there. According to the company, the expansions follow “strongly increased turnover” at VMI.

The new factory building will add 4200 square metres of assembly floor space, and the new R&D and Engineering office will add workspace for 150 to 200 engineers. In addition, a new parking lot is being built in Epe to hold 375 additional cars. Work is expected to completed in 2014.

“These developments are testament to VMI’s long history of expertise, innovation and success,” said Harm Voortman, president & CEO. “Our ongoing efforts to stay ahead of the competition have inspired us to develop and build the best-performing machines in the world. The expansions attest to our long-term commitment to meeting the demands of our customers, and will allow us to raise the bar for our customers even higher.”
