Decade of dedicated service from Edgetech Europe’s Heinsberg facility

Edgetech, a Quanex company, are celebrating not one but two milestones in Europe as the German facility passes a decade of manufacturing.

The celebrated firm has had a presence in the European market since the 1990s, and a UK site since 2007, but it was a decade ago that it cut the ribbon on its very first German manufacturing facility.

Based in Heinsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, close to the Dutch border, the state-of-the-art location produces millions of metres of spacer every year.

It’s become an integral part of Edgetech’s global operations, and a critical piece of the Quanex family more generally, as Chris Alderson, Managing Director of Edgetech Europe explains:

“Establishing a permanent base in mainland Europe was a hugely important step for us, and a key part of our plans for bringing outstanding warm-edge technology to customers around the world.

“Particularly through the often difficult economic conditions our sector has experienced since the start of the pandemic, the capacity our German facility provides has proved vital in allowing us to continue serving our customers.

“I want to pay tribute to the skill and professionalism of our German employees, and am confident we’ll go on to achieve even greater things together in the coming months and years.”
