Unimicron Germany received the building permit for the reconstruction of the innerlayer plant from the City of Geldern

Now it's official: Geldern's mayor Sven Kaiser and Peter Aengenheister, head of urban development and planning, handed over the building permit for the large-scale investment of Unimicron Germany to Gerard van Dierendonck and the architect Berthold Dams during a construction site visit on Friday, 11th of August 2017.

After the finalization of the construction documentation, extensive calculations and necessary expertise, Unimicron Germany, manufacturer of high-quality printed circuit boards, submitted the last documents for the building permit to the city of Geldern in June. “I am very happy, that the cooperation with all involved authorities has worked really well. So that we could approve this, for all parties important, building project in a short time”, explained Sven Kaiser. The quick release of the building permit was also possible due to the fast processing of numerous technical authorities of the district government of Düsseldorf (Bezirksregierung Düsseldorf) and the administration of the district Kleve (Kreis Kleve).

Managing Director Gerard van Dierendonck was also very happy about the result. “We have always stated that we want to keep our production site in Geldern and we have already ordered machines and equipment for millions of Euro for our future here. I am very pleased that the authorities are now giving us 'green light' for the reconstruction of our production facility”, he explained.

The reconstruction of the innerlayer plant is on a total floor space of 57,000 cubic meters with an effective area of 7,100 cubic meters. The dimensions of the new production hall are 150 meters in length, 46 meters in width and 8 meters in height.
