The opening ceremony was followed by a summer festival for more than 500 guests.
The overall investment of €20 million for the site includes the construction of a production and warehousing facility with a 12,000 square metre floor area, together with an 860 square metre office complex. The central focus point of the new factory is a new 70m long, state-of-the-art coating line with clean-air manufacturing, allowing ATP to offer adhesive tapes with high quality optical appearance.
The new production facility will create up to 50 new jobs and in addition, ATP will be offering more training places for new job-starters. Every year the company offers school leavers training places in various departments, including the laboratory, engineering, warehousing, logistics and customer service.
