The HETTICH Group with its headquarters in Kirchlengern is one of the world’s largest manufacturer of furniture fittings. In Exter/Vlotho, HETTICH runs a highly automated assembly facility for the manufacturing of intelligent high-quality technology for furniture. To realize the expansion strategy of the HETTICH Group, a factory structure planning including the planning and realization of a new 8,000 square meters extension was carried out.
"GREAN is a young and innovative team with unconventional ideas and backed by profound know-how. This became apparent at all of our workshops on strategic alignment and layout planning."
Jürgen Werner (Managing Director of Hettich-ONI GmbH & Co. KG)
In the first project phase, we jointly mapped the actual production structures and figures as well as the area utilization on site. Based on the actual situation and on growth scenarios, GREAN and HETTICH developed in workshops the future factory structure and various draft layout versions for an expansion of the business location. The result was the development of logistic and production areas of modular design. After an evaluation and final selection process, the preferred version was put into practice. The new factory building was constructed in just nine months and completed by the end of 2016.
