Company Expansion Germany: Strengthening the location, optimizing processes
Brush manufacturer Kullen-Koti invests in new administration building in Reutlingen With the construction of the new Kullen-Koti headquarters, which started a few days ago, the international Koti Group is strengthening its German production and sales location in Reutlingen.
The traffic-related separation of administration and production is thus a thing of the past, and the company has a great deal of room for manoeuvre for far-reaching process optimisation.
The ground-breaking ceremony has taken place, the excavators are already at work: A few days ago Kullen-Koti gave the go-ahead for the construction of a new administration building at the headquarters in Reutlingen. With an investment volume of around 5.0 million euros, the company is not only sending out a clear signal that it is securing its location, but is also setting the course for further growth on the German market. A strategic focus here is on further strengthening the portfolio of die-cut brushes. These brush types are among the technical multi-talents and prove to be versatile design elements in mechanical engineering and metalworking, for example, as well as practical helpers in the food and beverage industry.
The new building will provide Kullen-Koti with more than 3,000 square metres of additional floor space and bring all administrative and technical departments closer together and closer to production. The company's development, design, application technology and work preparation departments will benefit in particular. The three-storey building will also represent the new headquarters of Kullen-Kotiand will thus also be the headquarters of the management and the staff departments. All departments will receive a generous amount of space with great potential for the operative and personnel development of the location. Completion and commissioning are planned for the end of 2019.
The construction of the new main building in Reutlingen is part of a long-term expansion strategy of the Dutch Koti Group, whose central aspect is the strengthening of the 14 international subsidiaries. The Koti Group is a family-run company with a total of around 650 employees. It is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of technical brushes for industrial and craft applications. The German Kullen-KotiGmbH has been part of the group since 2012 and supplies customers all over the world with innovative brush systems for metalworking, conveyor technology, cleaning technology, the food industry, building technology and many other applications. It employs around 200 people at its Reutlingen site.
