The Semperit Group has expanded its Semperflex Optimit production capacity in Odry, Czech Republic. Approximately EUR 20 million was spent on this latest expansion of the hydraulic hose production, enhancing the capacities in Europe’s largest hose factory by approximately another third. Construction started in the summer of 2016 and additional hydraulic hose capacities will be available step-by-step during the rest of 2017 and the beginning of 2018. After completion, Europe’s largest hose factory will have a manufacturing capacity for hydraulic hoses that is around 30% higher than at the beginning of the investment programme in 2014. Semperflex hoses are used in a variety of industries that profit from long-term mega trends such as population growth, urbanisation and industrialisation.
