Back in 2016, WILLBRANDT Gummiteknik A/S purchased a building site in Haslev, with the intention of constructing a new domicile.
WILLBRANDT Gummiteknik A/S has rented the part commercial building ‘Grobund’ in Haslev since 2006 and despite repeated extensions of the lease, which also houses warehouses, the space has become too cramped for the company, which has expanded significantly for several years.
With 15 employees, divided into sales, consulting, development, warehousing and administration as well as 4 young workers, more space is needed and the clearing of the 11,300m2 large commercial area began in January 2020.
The new domicile will be located on Grønlandsgade 9 in Haslev, where a building on 2000m2 with space enough for further growth and expansion is constructed.
The warehouses will have 8-12 meters of ceiling, which will mean a tripling of the current storage capacity.
The contractor is “Gråkjær Erhverv”, which specializes in turnkey construction of commercial buildings.
On 1 September 2020, the concrete was delivered and the floor for the warehouse building was cast. 24 trucks delivered the concrete. The next day, the foundation of the adjoining office building was cast.
WILLBRANDT Gummiteknik A / S and Gråkjær Erhverv expect to have a topping-out ceremony for the new building in week 43, 2020; as the construction now is raising fast.
The domicile is expected to be finished by April 2021.
WILLBRANDT Gummiteknik A / S will thus own the buildings themselves, rather than renting, which is profitable more in the long run.
WILLBRANDT Gummiteknik, which is a subsidiary of WILLBRANDT Gummitechnik KG in Hamburg, has increased revenue significantly in 2019 and also had a better result in 2019 than in 2018, which was the company’s record year, compared with previous years.
The WILLBRANDT group has a total turnover of more than DKK 460 million and employs a total of 165 people.
WILLBRANDT is represented in Hamburg, Hanover, Berlin and Paris. In addition, the company is represented by salespeople who work regionally from their offices for example in Kolding and Stockholm.
