C. Hafner has served the precious metal industry for more than 160 years. The fifth-generation medium-sized company stands for innovative recycling, modern machining centres, decorative coatings and profound expertise in precious metal technology.
The products of C. Hafner are used, for example, in medicine and electrical engineering, and for jewellery and watches. In order to meet the steady growth and optimise processes, C. Hafner decided to build a new greenfield facility based on agiplan's site analysis.
From idea to new factory
From the idea up to the rough and factory layout planning, through to the definition of processes and their optimisation, agiplan accompanied all stages of the realisation of the new factory.
As part of the project management of the technical trades, the licensing procedures (BImSchG) and reports were also coordinated. The result is an innovative factory concept, the so-called "Hafner-T", which creates transparency and clarity and, most of all, leaves room for future expansion.
All divisions now benefit from ideal conditions for production and logistics. The "form follows function" principle certainly proved true here.
"agiplan's integrated factory planning is a guarantee for us that our company can secure a future-proof market position even in times of fast-paced competition," says Dr Heinz-Günter Schenzel of the C. Hafner management.
