ORAS GROUP OPTIMIZES ITS EUROPEAN PRODUCTION
To reduce the complexity and improve its competitiveness, Oras Group plans to restructure its European production. The company plans to close down the Burglengenfeld plant. The corresponding production is planned to be relocated into the Group other European plants. The company states that this increases its capacity utilization rate, improves its cost structure as well as secures the group’s competence in customer experience.
“To improve our capacity utilization rates, we have to concentrate our production volumes as few locations as possible. This will also contribute to reduction of the current complexity in our internal logistics and to thus once again increasing our competitiveness,” states Dipl.-Ing. Kari Lehtinen, President and CEO of Oras Group, of which Hansa Armaturen GmbH is a part.
Oras Group plans to close down the Burglengenfeld plant and relocate the corresponding production into its other plants in Europe.
Subject to discussions with the workers’ representatives, about 170 jobs at the Burglengenfeld plant will be cut due to the planned closing. The Oras Group wants to find responsible solutions for the employees affected by the plant shut-down in direct coordination with the workers’ representatives.
The production facilities in Kralovice (Czech Republic), Olesno (Poland) and Rauma (Finland) are not affected by this plan.

WHERE CAN I BUY HANSA FITTINGS?
Fittings are customarily available from HVAC trade professionals. The benefits: A specialist can give support when needed (and not only at a wholesaler's ...) and give all the advice you may need. He or she can install the fitting and give you a guarantee so that you are covered for any problems that could arise through faulty installation. Another advantage is that you can test various HANSA products live at a specialist trade exhibition – you can experience them in use and make confident choices in terms of design and quality. Are planning a complete bathroom refurbishment? Here, too, installers and other professionals are there to help. This means you can obtain everything from a single supplier – a full-service package that you will be able to enjoy for a very long time.
