Deublin plans relocation and expansion to the Rhine-Main area
DEUBLIN Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of rotating unions, has finalized its plans to relocate from Hofheim-Wallau to Mainz-Hechtsheim. Deublin Company, founded in the United States in 1945 expanded to Germany in 1969 to better service the European markets. Over the past 44 years the business has grown adding a network of distributors and six wholly owned DEUBLIN subsidiaries now covering all of Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
According to Don Deubler, owner of DEUBLIN Company, our German location is critical to properly serve and support our European market. Even though our current location and facility has served us well, this step will position us to serve our customers for the next 30 years from a state of the art facility. An additional requirement of Mr. Deubler was that we find a location that not only offered the land area and infrastructure to support our needs but that the location would have the least amount of travel disruption on our workforce. The Mainz-Hechtsheim area meets all of these requirements very well.
The design of the new facility will offer an environment which is not only flexible to our manufacturing needs but accommodating and comfortable for our people as well. We are very proud not only of the products that we deliver to our customers but of how our people accomplish this through their skills and methods, said Rick Shipway Vice President of Manufacturing. Now we have a great opportunity to construct this new facility in an ideal location and contribute to our new community as good citizens.
DEUBLIN Company is proceeding with the planning and approval process and projects to be operational in the early part of 2015.
