FACC to triple production area of Croatia plant
Aerospace company FACC will triple the production area of its Croatian plant for manufacturing high-tech components for cabin interiors. The construction work will be completed in June 2024, and the workforce will almost triple to 600 employees by the end of 2026. FACC is investing EUR 21 million in the expansion project.
A new PV system covering an area of 2000 m2 will provide around two thirds of the annual energy consumption currently required. In expanding the new plant, FACC is relying on a high degree of automation and state-of-the-art machinery for the production of lightweight components for passenger aircraft and business jets. This includes a fully automated paint shop as well as high-precision manufacturing equipment, which will enable faster ramp-up processes and higher quantities in the future. In total, the site will be expanded by around 12 500 m2.
