Offenburg, 30th July 2020 – The starting signal for the final development phase of the Burda printing center on the freight station in Offenburg was given in glorious summer weather. The German media company commissioned ATP Frankfurt with the integrated design of a 12,000 m2 expansion that is designed to strengthen its competitiveness even further. In future, more than 130,000 tons of paper should be printed annually in the new center. This represents around 40 billion sides of A4
“We are all proud of being able to celebrate this groundbreaking ceremony today,” said Burda Board Member Finance Holger Eckstein, visibly enthusiastic about the start of the third and final phase of construction. The expansion became necessary because the main plant on Hauptstraße, which dates back to 1965, was no longer able to meet current standards in terms of both energy-efficiency and logistics. The new building contains a functional production facility with storage hall and adjoining social building.
As part of the expansion project, the subsequent processing areas should also move from the old plant to the freight station. The combination and concentration of the two facilities in a single location will allow the modern printing center to meet market requirements in terms of production and logistics.
