News International-French

30 Jun 2016

The company announces the construction and expansion of its facilities in the Maisach Gernlinden area outside Munich, Germany.

ChemTrend’s European headquarters, already located at the site, will expand as part of the project to create an approximately $45 million complex that will also encompass facilities and services for two additional FCS business units, Klüber Lubrication Munich and OKS Specialty Lubricants. FCS is a member of the Freudenberg Group, a technology company active throughout the world.

When complete, the development will feature a newly created shared European logistics center for the three companies as well as state-of-the-art laboratory and testing facilities with additional office space and onsite storage capabilities for ChemTrend.

The groundwork for this expansion was laid in 2007 when Freudenberg acquired commercial property in the immediate vicinity of the existing ChemTrend and OKS facilities in Maisach.

The complex, which will house about 120 employees collectively, is set to include 16,600 square meters in space for the logistics center, small container filling unit and administrative area. Another 2,700 square meters will be dedicated to the laboratories, technology center and additional offices. Further space will be reserved for storage areas, offices and technical systems. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2017.

For ChemTrend, the expanded site further enhances its global presence and capacity to support growth throughout the region.
