Emtelle Expands Manufacturing Capabilities in Germany


Emtelle, global manufacturer of pre-connectorised, blown fibre cabling and ducted network solutions, has announced the first instalment of its focused expansion at the Emtelle GmbH manufacturing facility in Erfurt, Germany.

New extrusion lines have been purchased to increase manufacturing capabilities at the German factory.

This comes as Emtelle GmbH ramps up focus on the German and wider European market by increasing capacity and capabilities in all aspects of the German business. These state-of-the-art extrusion lines allow for high speed, efficient microduct manufacturing at the Erfurt-based plant.

Purchased from Maillefer, the global leader in wire, cable, pipe and tube production technologies, these new best-in-class extrusion lines provide Emtelle with the extra capability to manufacture microduct solutions to the highest quality. The new equipment is a noticeable addition to Emtelle’s already impressive production portfolio, where the company holds the title of Europe’s largest microduct manufacturer in terms of capacity with its existing 56 manufacturing lines.

Speaking of the purchase, Managing Director of Emtelle GmbH, Ralf Gorontzi said: “Emtelle has always been driven on delivering the highest quality product and service solutions to our customers across the globe. Our initial investment in the acquisition of Moore GmbH further emphasised our determination to be at the centre of the German and European market; but we won’t stop there – as the market grows, Emtelle too will grow, and the purchase of the new extrusion lines is a natural progression for the company. It’s important that we have the optimum technologies behind our product portfolio to manufacture our solutions in a high-quality way and this machinery from Maillefer allows us to do just that.”

Emphasizing this point, Philippe Moeschler, Maillefer’s VP for Pipe & Tube applications, stated: “Maillefer technologies guarantee excellent centricity and high stability of our customer’s products. By supplying such turn-key solutions to Emtelle, a customer who already excels in their manufacturing process, we assist them in expanding the existing range of extrusion lines. We expect to see Emtelle continue maximising output and to deliver more durable microduct solutions that are of the highest calibre”.

This investment comes as part of Emtelle’s ever-expanding focus and delivery to the European market, with more interesting developments to be announced from the leading manufacturer in the coming weeks.
