For 118 years, the Karlsruhe site has been active in metal engineering and is now undergoing a modern expansion. As Groke Türen und Toren GmbH had reached its capacity limits there, the urgently-needed construction of a new hall began in September 2015 in Hagenbach in Rhineland-Palatinate. A new building is now being built on about 4,450 m² in the Breitwiesen industrial park. The old production facilities no longer had any room for further expansions. The production of entry doors will be the focus of production at the new site. At the moment, a completely new powder-coating system is being built. At the same time, a high-
bay warehouse is being constructed at the new site. There is also a second construction phase in the planning which expands the building space to about 9,850 m2.
With the various building and expansion measures, Groke wants to achieve an even greater production depth and sees various individualisation options as additional development steps. Above all, the extensive chances when it comes to sizes and equipment features of the various door varieties are currently taking centre stage. With its flexible and need-oriented production model in which almost all doors are practically made in line with customer requests, Groke is reacting to the modern conditions of competition. More room and more production depth will improve efficiency, quality and ultimately benefit the customer.
