German kitchen manufacturer Rotpunkt will be focussing on expansion in 2021 and embarking on an ambitious three-year plan to boost manufacturing and training capabilities at its HQ in East Saxony. The brand is said to have made a 'multimillion-Euro investment' to increase factory size and create a new showroom and training centre, and is also taking steps to ensure its staff benefit from the latest equipment.
Matt Phillips, head of UK operations at Rotpunkt, said: “We want to ensure that our workforce has state-of-the-art equipment which is above and beyond the recommended safety requirements. We have invested in wearable tech and equipped our dispatch team with exoskeletons to support them during their most physically demanding tasks. At Rotpunkt, we are committed to growing our automated and manual capabilities in tandem, so we can best serve our markets."
He added that the majority of the brand's production is exported from its German headquarters, with international sales representing around 80% of its revenue, and that the British market is a strong source of growth alongside France, Scandinavia, Belgium and Germany. Additionally, he said that this year the company will be creating "a brand-new collection of furniture and bold new storage solutions", as well as continuing to focus on sustainability when it comes to manufacturing processes.
