Roxell announces growth plans
The company reports gains for the first half of 2016 and goals through 2017
Roxell, global market leader in house equipment for the poultry and pig industries, reports growth for the first half of 2016. That is up 10 percent on the same period in 2015.
Roxell looks back on two years of growth in a challenging and competitive market, fueled in part by strong demand for high-quality and innovative feeding, nesting and heating systems in the U.S. poultry industry. Roxell aims to further consolidate its position in the growth markets in the coming years.
For 2016-2017, these ambitions translate into a new, larger factory for Roxell Malaysia and into an expansion of the infrastructure of Roxell USA.
Early next year Roxell Malaysia will move into a new building near Port Klang. The building has a surface area of 6,400 m², almost three times that of the current location. Increasing both its production and storage capacity in Asia enables Roxell to expand its local product offering with a view to serving the Asian market more rapidly and efficiently.
Also the Roxell USA plant in the state of Missouri will initially be expanded by an area of 3,000 m². This location will thus be developed into a hub for the American continent.
After these expansions, Roxell will have a total factory space of 39,000 m²; 21,000 m² of that space will be in Belgium. The company currently employs 260 people worldwide.
"In this way, Roxell's operational footprint is aligned with growth in the global markets and we can provide the same support to all our customers throughout the world," says Gino Van Landuyt, Managing Director.
