Inauguration of the Bukowno plant in Poland
On September 5, Schneider Electric Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Henri Lachmann inaugurated the Bukowno plant in Poland, which will manufacture Merlin Gerin brand low-voltage devices for the world market.
This manufacturing plant, representing a long-term investment in the order of 7 million euros, is continuing to be extended to reach a surface area of 4,020 sqm in a year's time.
The investments made were primarily for automated and manual assembly lines, automated systems, tools and machines for sub-assembly production, as well as for a quality laboratory.
The extension project also includes starting up manufacturing of new products, and increasing the production capacity.
All work should be completed by 2006.
