Business Operations Salzburger Aluminium Group Invests Millions in New Site in Slovakia
SAG Slovakia - a wholly owned subsidiary of the Salzburger Aluminium Group - will start production at its new site in the SIHOT industrial park near Trencin. The SAG Group invested around 1.5 million euros in the relocation, expansion and extended technical equipment.
The new plant is located near the Czech-Austrian border and offers the company, which specialises in special constructions made of metal and aluminium, considerably larger capacities: With an area of 10,365 m2, the new plant will have enough space to adapt to the increasing demand for special parts from manufacturers of special vehicles or the railway industry. The central location of the new site and the good connection to the main transport networks also bring environmental benefits through shortened transport routes, thus contributing to climate protection and product sustainability.
After 19 years at the Dubnica site, the change of location became necessary this year. At the plant in Slovakia, SAG specialises in the production of complex special constructions made of aluminum, which are designed and manufactured individually according to customer requirements. The range extends from window systems for trains to huge tanks with a capacity of over 3,000 litres. In the last few months alone, the company has won major orders from RMMV, the City of Vienna, John Deere, Liebherr and Siemens Mobility. "With the optimized infrastructure, we can further streamline procedures and make the production process even more efficient," explains plant manager Andrej Čikel. Karin Exner-Wöhrer, CEO of the Salzburger Aluminium Group, adds: "At our plant in Slovakia, we produce customized products for our international customers for special applications in vehicle construction or the railway sector. With the new plant, we can offer an even wider range of production steps for their customers in-house."
