Jungheinrich, a powerhouse in the world of equipment-making, has just unveiled its most ambitious project yet – Jungheinrich New Plant in Chomutov. Located in the heart of the Czech Republic, this sprawling new facility is being hailed as a game-changer in the industry. For the people of Chomutov and its surroundings, it marks a promising new beginning.

Imagine a space that’s as big as several football fields combined. That’s 37,000 square meters for you. Nestled a short distance from the bustling city of Prague, this isn’t just any facility. The company’s vision is to turn this into their primary spot for making reach trucks. These aren’t ordinary trucks; we’re talking about a special one called the ETV 216i.

Now, for those scratching their heads, wondering what’s so cool about the ETV 216i, here’s the scoop. This reach truck is revolutionary because it’s the first of its kind to use a lithium-ion battery. This wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment decision. 

The idea was birthed and nurtured in a place named Norderstedt. With Chomutov taking the lead in producing these trucks, the Norderstedt factory is getting ready to diversify and create different, equally innovative products.

While we’re throwing around numbers, here’s another that’s sure to impress: 60 million Euros. That’s how much was invested in setting up this new plant. And guess what? It’s not just Jungheinrich who’s reaping the benefits. 

The local community is in for a treat with 350 new job opportunities springing up. For the people of Chomutov, this means new opportunities, career growth, and economic upliftment. All these efforts are part of Jungheinrich’s bigger picture, fittingly named Strategy 2025+, where the aim is to work smarter, be more efficient, and skyrocket their business growth.

At the helm of all these innovations and strategic decisions is Sabine Neuß, a significant figure at Jungheinrich. Expressing her enthusiasm, she said, “Our new home in Chomutov isn’t just another plant; it’s one of the most advanced facilities you’ll find globally. We’re not just expanding; we’re evolving to produce more and cater to the ever-growing demands of Europe.”

Being efficient is commendable. But what sets the Chomutov plant apart is its commitment to the environment. Picture this: Machines that are state-of-the-art, not just in performance, but in eco-friendliness. A painting process that doesn’t just make things look pretty but does so while consuming minimal energy. And to aid the hardworking souls at the plant, there’s a digital helper system – think of it as a digital buddy that makes tasks smoother and more efficient.

But hold on, the eco-friendly train doesn’t stop there. The Chomutov plant is a shining example of Jungheinrich’s commitment to Mother Earth. Touted as their greenest project so far, the facility uses clean energy sources, ensuring minimal pollution and maximum efficiency. 

The building itself is designed to trap and reuse heat, making sure not an ounce of energy goes to waste. And in a move that would make environmentalists nod in approval, they’ve devised a system to collect and utilize rainwater, ensuring minimal wastage and optimal use of natural resources.

To wrap things up, what we’re seeing is more than just the opening of a new plant. It’s a glimpse into the future of manufacturing and a testament to Jungheinrich’s commitment to innovation, employee welfare, and environmental sustainability. For the people of Chomutov and the world at large, these are exciting times, and the future looks promising.
