“We are stepping up capacity in response to rising market demand for innovative and energy-efficient electronic ballasts. At the same time, by installing the latest production technology we are making a clear commitment to the future of our operations in Dornbirn,” said TridonicAtco COO Rüdiger Kofahl, commenting on the investments at the company’s home base. “The new SMT and soldering machines are state of the art. And the new equipment will also make for lower energy consumption and more flexible production,” added Plant Manager Markus Kronenwett.
The introduction of the new equipment will also mean extensive changes to the existing production layout, much of which will be swivelled through 90 degrees to optimise material flows. The individual workstations will also be adapted to the new production procedures and modernised accordingly. The changeover is to take place gradually and without interrupting production.
TridonicAtco is the only manufacturer to produce the vast majority of its electronic ballasts at facilities in Europe. With its highly automated manufacturing operations, TridonicAtco thus safeguards European jobs in the production sector and at the same time offers customers a regionally optimised logistics service in line with its “ecolution” sustainability strategy. The company’s other production plants for electronic lighting components are located in Ennenda, Switzerland and in Spennymoor, UK. TridonicAtco also operates a production facility in Shenzhen, China.
