The symbolic ribbon has been cut. A few days ago, almost two years after the groundbreaking ceremony, Schmalz opened the expansion of its US location. The expansion of the Raleigh, North Carolina facility has created space for approximately 60 new jobs.
"This expansion is a true milestone and adds great value for our customers," said Dr. Kurt Schmalz, managing partner of Schmalz. "The U.S. is a market of extraordinary importance to us, so we look forward to the rapid development of our foreign subsidiary and anticipate further growth."
Schmalz has seen a steep rise in the United States. The expansion has increased the Raleigh office's square footage to approximately 8,000 square feet. Schmalz has invested a high single-digit million sum for this. Even before the expansion, the US location, which was founded in 1999, was one of the largest within the Schmalz Group with around 110 employees. Now, around 60 additional jobs are to be added in the future.
Schmalz is also pursuing its growth goals in other countries. For example, the sites in India and China were also significantly expanded last year through major construction projects. In addition, Schmalz will open another location in Bydgoszcz, Poland, before the end of the year. In total, the international Schmalz Group now comprises 29 locations worldwide with around 1,800 employees.
