Opening of the new production hall
GIS ceremoniously opened the new production hall with an event for the employees last Friday.
The new building offers an additional usable area of 1400 m2. As a result, the internal logistics, in particular the transport of the crane system components, can be optimized and the production capacity of the main product, the electric chain hoist, can further be increased. The employees will also get a modern common area with showers, a locker room and a kitchen.
This project is a new milestone in the history of GIS and a clear commitment to the production location in Switzerland.
With the expansion of the GP electric chain hoist series and the introduction of the new trolley generation, two ambitious long-term objectives are scheduled for 2020 for which GIS will already benefit from the new infrastructure.
