FSG Fernsteuergeräte from Berlin, a measurement and sensor technology manufacturer, has opened its fourth location in nearby Königs Wusterhausen on 23 June 2017.
Founded in 1946, the growing company pools its entire production including a paint shop and a training workshop there. 60 production staff are employed at the new location. The premises span 44,000 square meters.
The company invested 5.5 million euros for the construction of two production halls with a total shop floor of 3,000 m² and a 1,350 m² administrative building that integrates canteens and changing rooms.
“In addition to our three existing sites in Berlin, Heppenheim and Kablow, we chose this new location because of its excellent access to the motorway and our previous positive experiences with the city – part of our development, production and assembly has been situated here for 25 years,” says co-CEO Carsten Schulz.
The construction of a new plant to enlarge production capacities was necessitated by a growing demand for high-quality products from FSG. FSG produces sensors for various industrial sectors, among them the rail, ship and crane industries.
