The Hamm plant is located in Tirschenreuth, an administrative centre some two hours’ drive from Munich. More than 900 people work here. The products developed here not only display a high functionality and cost-efficiency, but also have an attractive futuristic design typical of Hamm products. The large, modern assembly hall covering an area approx. 22,000 m2 is characterized by an optimized flow of materials, from the incoming goods department to the shipping department. Its sophisticated logistics concept makes it the most modern roller plant in Europe. Intelligent warehouse systems and the manner in which the eight production lines are organized have earned it the nick-name of a “plant full of short-cuts”. Quality control is a matter of great importance and accompanies the entire production process of every machine built here. It ends with an endurance test to which every roller is subjected on the test bench before being delivered to the customer.
