The plastics recycling specialist B-Plast 2000 is about to expand further
The plastics recycling company based in the East Frisian town of Aurich is about to expand its operations further. The expansion of further production capacities is planned for 2022.
The construction of two production and storage halls, each 2,500 m² in size, as well as the construction of the corresponding loading and unloading facilities and other production facilities is planned. The internationally active company will build the twelfth and thirteenth hall for the further and deeper refinement of high-quality plastic granules and compounds.
The commissioning of the production lines is scheduled for the end of 2022.
"In order to meet the increased demand for our products in full service, we plan to hire more staff in addition to expanding capacity," says Managing Director Stefan Bohlen.
Furthermore, a neighboring hall complex will be integrated into the structure of the recycling company. The planned expansion of an additional 3,500 m² will also take place in 2022.
In connection with the integration, the company premises will increase to 8.1 hectares, of which 25,000 m² is hall space.
The total investment at the Schirum site amounts to around 6 million euros and, according to information from the management, is being made benevolently, since the city administration of Aurich and politicians recently spoke out against the introduction of the rainwater fee and against the increase in other taxes.
The economic location of Aurich and the significant increase in local medium-sized companies in the Schirum industrial and commercial area is the result of a business-friendly city policy.
