In response to steady demand across Europe, Austrian lighting specialist Aspöck has expanded its manufacturing plant in Oliveira de Azeméis, Portugal.
At 9,000m2, the logistics and production facility has doubled in size and will soon also include a dedicated Engineering and Product Testing Centre, the company announced.
“Aspöck Portugal is to be the centre for research, design and development for the entire Aspöck Group,” the company explained.
“This will see new laboratories and a test centre for approximately 90 people from Austria and Portugal being created, featuring the latest technology. This is … where all ideas converge.
“What we have created here is state-of-the-art logistics and an assembly hall at the cutting edge of technology. With these and other capacity expansions, the Aspöck Group sees itself ideally prepared for new projects and developments.”
In the production hall, new injection moulding machines are meant to achieve an improved energy balance and greater productivity, while the dispatching system has been upgraded using the Austrian head office as a blueprint, Aspöck explained.
Aspöck has been active in the global trailer market for 35 years and specialises in the manufacture and supply of lighting kits.
