Komptech Expands Manufacturing Capacity to Meet Demand

Strong Demand causes increased Supply.

To meet the increasing demand for its machines, in 2012 Komptech expanded its manufacturing capacity with a new plant in Germany and a major expansion of its plant in Ljutomer near its Austrian headquarters. The new facility can build six large compost turners, shredders or other machines at the same time, doubling the plant’s previous capacity.

This expansion means not just more production capacity, but also economies of scale, according to the company. This in turn helps Komptech continue to offer its customers quicker lead times and reduction of the customers’ operation costs even as it invests to keep its technology ahead of the market. In fact, Komptech invests 7 percent of revenues in R&D.

Since completion of the expansion in March 2012, the Ljutomer plant has been turning out machines like the Topturn compost turner for markets around the world, mainly for the North American market, which is Komptech’s largest single market.
