Recycling equipment manufacturer Lindner has moved into a new, sustainably built headquarters in Austria.
One year after a topping-out ceremony, the move into the new offices and 14,000 m² production area took place in July.
In 2019, due to the high demand for efficient recycling solutions Lindner decided it needed a new home.
The company planned the facility to be sustainably built and with a focus on robotics and automation.
“Disrupted supply chains have also shown how important it is for us to manufacture as many components as possible in our own production. Only by investing in our own manufacturing capabilities, robotics, automation and flow production we can ensure the quality of our products and reliable delivery times in the future,” said Manuel Lindner, CEO and owner.
The production area in the new plant has doubled. “But it is just as important to us that we offer our employees a modern workplace,” said Michael Lackner, Managing Director at Lindner.
“By using automation and robotics, we can make work more comfortable. Heavy physical work, such as mounting machines, is no longer necessary. Instead, the task is focused on the proper operation of the robots. We are also significantly expanding our team, which means that we are currently taking on 100 new employees.”
A photovoltaic system supplies the entire company with clean electricity from renewable sources. Heating and cooling is provided by groundwater and heat pumps. Laminated timber from the region, a renewable raw material, was used in the construction of the production hall. In the employee car park recycled plastic turf bricks made by a Lindner customer were used for the paving.
