AEZ Produktion GmbH launched full operations at its German Neuenrade production site, the largest construction project in the history of the company.
The newly built location in Neuenrade (North Rhine-Westphalia) applies cutting edge technology to the production of over a million wheels over a total area of 14,000 m2. A total of approximately € 13 million was invested in the new site.
The modernisation of the Neuenrade location created 50 new jobs in the region and illustrates the ALCAR Group’s central strategy:
“Made in Germany” – AEZ Leichtmetallräder supports Germany as a production site
More and more of our competitors are focusing on cutting costs by relocating production to low-wage countries. AEZ has taken a different route, setting as a goal the manufacture of nearly 100 per cent of its AEZ brand wheels at its own production sites in Germany by 2011.
Our motto is “Profitability based on Quality and Flexibility”. Eighty per cent of our wheels are already manufactured at our own sites in Germany.
