Pollmann establishes new location in Mexico

Waldviertel automotive supplier continues expansion

“Arriba, Arriba! Ándale!, Ándale!” – Who doesn’t know the call of the fastest mouse in all of Mexico? – Automotive supplier Pollmann was not quite as fast, but very thorough in exploring the opportunities and risks of expanding into Mexico. With its recent decision to establish a production facility in one of the world’s fastest growing automotive markets, Pollmann will successfully expand its global presence even further.

Pollmann continues its strong growth by establishing a production site in Mexico following those in the Czech Republic, the U.S. and China. It will be located in the city of San Miguel de Allende, a World Heritage Site in the state of Guanajuato, about a four-hour drive North-West of Mexico City. “By purchasing a 15,000 m² plot of land and with an initial investment of US$ 11 million, we are solidifying our claim to be as close to the customer as possible. This positions us as a relevant player in one of the world’s most dynamic automotive markets. It also offers us an exciting opportunity to grow our market shares in North America”, says Herbert Auer, CEO of Pollmann International.

Apprentices to start at Pollmann

(September 2016)
8 new apprentices enter training with an international outlook

As an international, family-owned business, Pollmann places great value on offering a sustainable education and training program. In addition to the dual education system (vocational school and practical experience in technical fields), apprentices at Pollmann receive extensive additional training. Presentations by in-house experts, participation in projects and training sessions about topics such as lean production, quality assurance in the production process, social competence or English complement our training program.

Pollmann offers exceptional comprehensive training in an international company that prepares the apprentices for jobs with solid career prospects, says Erwin Negeli, CEO Pollmann Austria. An additional special incentive is Pollmann’s “Fit for International” program which lets the top apprentices in the graduating classes spend time at a Pollmann location abroad. Pollmann has currently 35 apprentices in seven different skilled professions.

Breaking ground

(April 2016)
The production area at Pollmann Austria is at full capacity. The new building currently under construction will add 13,000 square feet of production space.

A major part of this new space has already been allocated to a large-scale door lock project. “We are very excited", says Pollmann Austria CEO Erwin Negeli, “because it shows that we have established an excellent reputation in the door lock segment not only with our existing customers. We were also able to win a new customer for a highly sophisticated project.”

At the Karlstein location, Pollmann specializes in the production of complex metal-plastic composites in high volumes and has extensive know-how in the development and production of overmolded parts. “The important point is that in this segment, we are not simply a manufacturer of injection molding parts, but are also able to offer down-stream processes along the value-added chain of the product. This includes the automated placement of micro switches, the soldering of diodes or processing steps such as molding, welding or riveting”, Negeli explains.


Pollmann Austria continues to expand

(Feburary 2016)
The production facilities at Pollmann Austria have reached their capacity. To expand our manufacturing area, we are adding a new 13,000 square foot building.

 The components and assemblies which we produce in large quantities for our automotive customers are becoming increasingly sophisticated. At the same time, the requirements for manufacturing processes continue to increase and production machines are becoming more complex. More and more injection molding machines and downstream equipment are merged into "production units" which require additional space. The peripheral equipment is state-of-the-art to meet the stringent cleanliness requirements and to ensure the optimization of logistics space and occupational safety.
