With the construction of the new technology center for research and development, Oerlikon Neumag, the Neumünster-based German machine and plant manufacturer, is still fully on schedule. Only four months after the ground-breaking ceremony at the beginning of February, the topping-out ceremony could be celebrated today. Despite the conditions made more difficult by the Corona crisis, the timetable was adhered to.

"A  heartfelt  thank  you  goes  to  all  those  involved  for  their  excellent  work.  We  are  looking  forward  to moving into the new technology center at the beginning of 2021 in order to focus even more strongly on  our  customers  in  the  development  of  our  product lines",  said  Oerlikon  Neumag  site  manager  Matthias  Pilz, underlining the achievement of the next construction phase. However, the construction team  still  has  a  lot  of  work  to  do  before  normal  operation  can  begin.  Following  completion  of  the  2,100  m²  hall  in  autumn  this  year,  the  new  laboratory  facilities  will  be  installed  and  commissioned. Only then development work and customer trials can begin. 

The signs at the Neumünster site are pointing to growth. With an investment volume in the two-digit million range, the new building documents the clear commitment of the Oerlikon Group to continuous future-oriented research and development work. The high-tech company's new developments repeat-edly set standards in the areas of professionalism, process stability and sustainability.

In  Oerlikon  Neumag's  more  than  70-year  history,  numerous  successful  product  developments  are proof  of  the  company's  innovative  spirit.  Today,  more  than  500  permanent  employees  work  at  the Neumünster site, of which almost 60 are in the research and development department alone.
