Distributor Avnet Embedded is building a multi-million-euro manufacturing plant in Germany for industrial systems.
The company has held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the commencement of the plant at Breisgau Industrial Park in Eschbach near Freiburg. It will focus on industrial electronic systems and is a direct response to a significant growth in global demand for embedded boards.
The completion of the build and move to Eschbach is scheduled for early 2023. The new campus will be home to 8,000m2 of manufacturing space, 7,200 m2 of warehousing space and 3,000 m2 of office and recreational space with parking.
Compared to the current facility in Freiburg, Eschbach will have about twice as much manufacturing space connected to a large logistics space.
Avnet Embedded has signed a long-term rental agreement on the site and is investing several million euros in equipping the highly automated manufacturing site.
“At Avnet, we see the embedded business worldwide as the growth engine of the future and are therefore continually expanding our design and manufacturing capacities for industrial electronic systems. With the new site, we are taking a major step towards realizing double-digit growth in the coming years. Moreover, we intend to maintain the company’s in-house expertise in the most advanced technologies,” said Dr Dominik Ressing, Vice President of Avnet Embedded.
