Lindner moves to new hq and plant in Austria

Lindner moves to new hq and plant in Austria

A year after the topping-out ceremony, Austrian recycling specialist Lindner has moved into its new offices and the 14,000 sq m production area, which was completed in July this year. The upgrade is as a result of the upswing recycling has been experiencing these past few years, says the family-owned machine maker.

In 2019, due to the associated higher demand for recycling solutions, Lindner decided to build a new factory. It adds, “Even at the initial planning stage it was clear that the new office building and production facility had to be sustainably built in line with future requirements. In terms of production, the focus was on the further expansion of automation and robotics, the associated quality assurance, process optimisation in assembly and on extending the company's own manufacturing capabilities.”

The disrupted supply chains as a result of the pandemic also was the impetus on the importance to manufacture as many components as possible in-house.

“Only by investing in our own manufacturing capabilities, robotics, automation and flow production we can ensure the quality of our products and reliable delivery times in the future,” says Manuel Lindner, CEO and owner.

“We want our new headquarters to be perfectly equipped for future requirements and be well-positioned to maintain high quality standards and meet the increasing demand for our machines. The production area in the new plant has doubled, which means that we are ideally equipped to cope with the increasing capacities,” says Michael Lackner, Managing Director at Lindner.

He added, “But it is just as important to us that we offer our employees a modern workplace. By using automation and robotics, we can make work more comfortable. Heavy physical work, such as mounting machines, is no longer necessary. Instead, the task is focused on the proper operation of the robots. We are also significantly expanding our team, which means that we are currently taking on 100 new employees.”

The new production area is not the only highlight; the three-storey office complex has modern construction and facilities. A photovoltaic system supplies the entire company with clean electricity from renewable sources. In keeping with the idea of an energy self-sufficient site, heating and cooling is also provided by groundwater and heat pumps. Laminated timber from the region, a renewable raw material, was used in the construction of the hall itself. And in the design of the employee car park, it was important to seal as little ground as possible, which is why special recycled plastic turf bricks made by a Lindner customer were used for the paving, adds the firm.
