Häcker Küchen has started construction of a new kitchen furniture factory in Ostercappeln-Venne, which the company says is the “largest investment project” in its history and will be “one of the most modern plants to date”.

The new factory will create “several hundred” new jobs, Häcker added. “The new building in Ostercappeln-Venne gives us the opportunity to set up state-of-the-art production flows based on digitised processes,” said technology managing director Dirk Krupka.

“A high level of automation will set standards in terms of process quality and productivity. In this way, we can secure and expand our competitiveness in the long term. About 450 sustainable jobs will be created, which we are already filling.”

Krupka added: “We are looking for employees in the production and internal logistic processes, machine operators, truck drivers and dispatchers, etc. Commissioning of the new plant is scheduled for autumn 2020.”
