LEONHARD KURZ opens new assembly and central building in Sulzbach-Rosenberg

Fürth/Germany, June 25, 2024: After around 1.5 years of construction, the time had finally come on June 19: LEONHARD KURZ's new assembly and central building (KUZ) was officially opened in Sulzbach-Rosenberg. The approximately 4,000 square meter and approximately 15-meter high, ultra-modern building will be the new home of the assembly of the Business Area Industrial (BAI) products. For the specialist in finishing and thin-film technology, the construction was the largest single investment of 2023 worldwide at around 23 million euros - a clear commitment to the location where the company is deeply rooted as the largest employer.

In the new building, transfer products are assembled according to customer re-quirements, i.e. tailored to customer requirements. There are also new lounges and offices, changing rooms, showers and a modern visitor reception area. Thanks to digitalization, many processes will be able to run even more efficiently in the future, and many workflows and processes have been optimized in many ways. CEO Dr. Andreas Hirschfelder looked optimistically to the future: "With our new assembly building, we are also securing our competitiveness on the market. We can offer our customers even better service and state-of-the-art technology that allows us to work even more efficiently and with more process optimization. We rely on the strength of our team and invest in Germany as a location." In addi-tion to the Board Member, members of the management, representatives of the city and employees of the company were also present. After the official opening, there was the opportunity to take an individual tour of the new building.
