The European Woodwork Center covers the area of more than 91 thousand square meters*, where each day 7000 windows are produced.
The first stage of the investment started in 2013 and it took 20 months. In October 2014 DRUTEX launched the first production hall covering more than 28,500 m2 that allowed the company to increase the production capacity, and therefore, to strengthen DRUTEX competitive advantage on the company key export markets. The steel structure of the hall covering the surface of four football pitches, has a total weight of 904 tons, equivalent to the weight of three Airbus A380 Superjumbo planes. The ground works required the transport of ca. 176.413 m³ of ground. About 30000 plants were planted around the hall and 10,000 m² of lawn were laid. The new production hall was equipped with a modern, automated machine park from renowned, global companies, both for facilities and machines for PVC profile production, as well as for composite glass and PVC window and door woodwork.
At the beginning of 2015 DRUTEX started the construction of the second production hall as a part of the EWC. The second stage of the investment entails the construction of an object covering more than 25,000 m2, i.e. another four football pitches, and it will strengthen the company production capacities. The second part of the object, currently under construction, will have the length of 194m, and width of 120m.
The new production hall is being built in steel technology. It will be executed in the same technology and architecture as the existing first part of the hall. Heated overpasses, characteristic for DRUTEX investment, will also appear as a part of the communication system. The facility will encompass production area, office and conference space, and the support infrastructure, including roads and parking lots. The solutions adopted during the design and realization stages, not only guarantee maximum energy efficiency, but also enable the optimum organization of production processes. All that, combined with the most cutting-edge machinery in the industry, will definitely improve the dynamic growth of our company. The completion of the construction of the new production hall is due at the end of this year.
