The reorganisation of the Bekum Group in Germany and Austria was successfully completed in spring 2016 as planned. The Production division, which includes machine assembly, shipping, procurement, work preparation and warehousing, has moved to Traismauer (Austria), about 60km from Vienna. For this purpose, more than 5 million Euros were invested in the expansion of the Traismauer site and approximately 40 new employees were hired.

The aim was to consolidate the European manufacturing of extrusion blow moulding machines at a single site. While previously only large blow moulding machines were built at Traismauer (established since 1968), now smaller packaging machines will be built in the 16,000m2 space. Through consolidation of the processes at a single site, significant synergies have already been achieved. For this, Bekum invested more than 5 million Euros in the expansion of the site, particularly by adding assembly and office space, as well as in the construction of a new central warehouse.

In Berlin, the company moved into new headquarters in mid-April 2016, not far from the previous headquarters. In contemporary offices, worldwide operations come together in the areas of sales and marketing, development and design, as well as technical service and spare parts distribution.

New orders were received in Eastern Europe and the Middle East for mostly small and medium-sized machines for the packaging industry. These have been delivered as the first packaging machines out of the Traismauer factory.
