Topping-out ceremony for expansion
New production halls strengthen the AMAZONE factory in Altmoorhausen
Almost 15 years after the ground-breaking ceremony at the Altmoorhausen site, the topping-out ceremony for two new production halls was celebrated on 7 July, 2023 as part of the fourth expansion. They cover a total of 5,280 m² of floor space and extend the covered area of the production facility in Altmoorhausen to around 32,500 m². A prefabrication area will be added to the halls to allow the manufacture of individual parts and components directly on site.
Numerous guests from the district, municipality, local neighbourhood and AMAZONE workforce accepted the invitation to the topping-out ceremony. In addition to Christian Dreyer and his wife Bettina, guests from the owner family of the AMAZONE Group attending the event in Hude also included senior partner Klaus Dreyer with his wife Malu and Dr. Stephan Evers as managing director and plant manager. After the welcome speech by Dr. Evers, speeches were given by Hude mayor Jörg Skatulla and county commissioner Dr. Christian Pundt. The keynote speech was given by Mr. Nieters from the structural engineering company Hoving & Hellmich. To conclude the official part, Christian Dreyer gave a speech From left: Dr. Stephan Evers (Managing Director for Production, Quality, IT), Klaus Dreyer, Malu Dreyer, Christian and Bettina Dreyer, Volker Osterloh (Head of the Paint Shop for Hude and Altmoorhausen) and Günter Aljets (Operations Manager for Hude and Altmoorhausen) reviewing the development of the Altmoorhausen site and explained that the construction of the two halls represented a new milestone in the development of the plant.
