The desire to increase their range of distribution was the principal reason behind Faerch Plast's decision to locate their first production facility outside Denmark in the Czech Republic. The new location provides proximity to the rapidly growing markets in Central and Southern Europe. Ramboll was assigned as General Planner.
Faerch Plast is one of the leading producers of plastic film and thermoforms in Europe, servicing primarily the food industry. The investment in the new production facility of 13,500 sq.m. in Liberec meant lower production costs and brought the company closer to a large potential market whilst reducing distribution costs. An added bonus was the generation of 80 jobs, thus contributing to growth and development in the region.
Ramboll’s Tailor-made General Planner Concept
As General Planner, Ramboll was fully responsible to Faerch Plast for all performed services comprising design, project and construction management of the whole factory, including architectural works (architectural design developed in cooperation with Arkitema), structural and civil works and mechanical and electrical installations as well as utility lines to and from the plot.
Ramboll has developed a General Planner concept that ensures a top quality result from A to Z, from purchase of the plot to the final handover of the completed production facility. The concept is tailor-made for industrial companies planning to build production facilities worldwide. It carefully guides the client through the planning of the building project. Ramboll takes charge of the entire process from the start of the planning until the completed building is handed over and, within the agreed time and budget, leaves the client with a modern production facility of Western European standard that also reflects our renowned Scandinavian sense of quality and good design.
The master plan for the project allows for more than tripling of the production areas on the site.
