With this step, Semperit creates additional jobs in the high double-digit range and sustainably secures its leading position as Europe’s largest hose manufacturer.

“With high-quality products and a strong sales performance, Semperflex has managed to increase sales and market shares despite difficult economic conditions. Demand for our hydraulic hoses is so high that we had to start the next expansion step immediately after having put the latest expansion stage into operation in spring 2015,” says Martin Füllenbach, CEO of Semperit AG Holding, on the occasion of the opening of the new production site.

“By further expanding our factory in Odry, we are creating the necessary capacities to continue fully meeting our customers demand and to secure our growth path on the production side. Moreover, with additional jobs we underline the great importance of Semperflex Optimit as one of the largest employers in the region.”

Semperflex is one of the globally leading manufacturers of hydraulic and industrial hoses. Semperflex hoses are used in a variety of industries that profit from long-term mega trends such as population growth, urbanisation and industrialisation. With the recent expansion, Semperit has successfully completed the third expansion stage at the Odry site within three years.

Construction started in summer 2016. Additional hydraulic hose capacities will be available step by step from the end of 2017/beginning of 2018. After completion, Europe’s largest hose factory will have a manufacturing capacity for hydraulic hoses that is around 30% higher than at the beginning of the investment programme in 2014.
