With the first official spadeful of earth, German machinery manufacturer Multivac has kicked off the construction works for a new factory for its TVI Entwicklung und Produktion company in Bruckmühl, Germany. Covering around 9,000 square metres of available space, the complex will comprise an office building and Customer Center as well as the production hall. Completion is planned for May 2020, and the total investment reportedly amounts to approx. 17.5 million euros.

TVI is part of Multivac since 2017. The company is said to be the market leader in meat portioning machines and complete portioning lines. Its product portfolio includes solutions for tempering, pressing, portioning and automating, as well as grill stick winders and equipment for producing kebab skewers. By investing in the new factory, the company's leading position in precision meat portioning is aimed to be consolidated. The number of employees is due to increase from the current 120 to around 250 in the coming years, according to Multivac.

The plans for the new center

The new Center of Excellence for meat portioning reportedly will include a production hall of around 5,600 square metres for the Pre-fabrication and Assembly areas as well as the Logistics, Warehouse and Development departments. The new factory reportedly will use a deep-well system to ensure that the building is cooled by ground water. In addition to this, a three-storey office building with a total area of 1,920 square metres is planned, in which a canteen, offices and a recreation room will be housed. A two-storey Customer Center covering an area of around 1,400 square metres, including several demonstration rooms and a Customer Lounge, rounds off the new complex, according to the group.
