Japanese robotics company Yaskawa Europe GmbH opened earlier this year its new EUR 8 million extension in Allershausen. The investment, which was assisted by Invest in Bavaria and secures some 300 jobs, comes in response to the huge demand for automation solutions in Europe.
Schuster Kunststofftechnik GmbH, which belongs to the Japanese Nissha Group (Kyoto / Japan), inaugurated a new logistics hall at the beginning of the year at its headquarters in Waltershausen. The 2.800 m² new building cost around EUR 1.8 million. The injection molding company mainly manufactures components for the automotive industry, but also supplies customers in the medical technology, household appliances and electronics industries. Further investments in the expansion of production and office capacities are planned.
