Emtelle expands manufacturing capabilities for German market

Share this on social media:

Emtelle GmbH is undergoing expansion at its facility in Erfurt, Germany, where new extrusion lines have been purchased to increase manufacturing capabilities.

This is part of the blown fibre specialist’s plans to ramp up focus on the German and wider European market. This was evidenced by the acquisition of German duct manufacturer Moore GmbH in 2017 and the company is making waves in this market, including its strategic partnership with Deutsche Glasfaser for the supply of a range of tube bundles and fibre cables to the former’s nationwide expansion project. 

The new extrusion lines allow for high speed, efficient microduct manufacturing at the Erfurt-based plant, to help stay ahead of the strong demand in this market. Purchased from Maillefer, the lines are a noticeable addition to Emtelle’s already production portfolio of 56 manufacturing lines.

Managing director of Emtelle GmbH, Ralf Gorontzi said: ‘Our initial investment in the acquisition of Moore GmbH further emphasised our determination to be at the centre of the German and European market; but we won’t stop there – as the market grows, Emtelle too will grow, and the purchase of the new extrusion lines is a natural progression for the company.’
