On a growth trajectory: Expansion at the Langenhagen site

With over 85 years of experience, the Gielissen Group develops and manufactures individual solutions for various clients in the field of trade fair, event, and interior construction at nine locations worldwide. Gielissen Interiors | Exhibitions | Events is part of this group, serving as a general contractor in interior construction, as well as a trade fair builder and event organizer. Under the umbrella of Gielissen Innenausbau GmbH, high-quality interiors and bespoke furniture are created. The company's commitment to the Langenhagen site is evident through the construction of this carpentry workshop, consolidating its efforts there.

Directly opposite the headquarters of Gielissen Interiors | Exhibitions | Events at Grovestraße 16, the state-of-the-art carpentry workshop is being established. Its equipment mirrors that of Gielissen's carpentry workshops in Eindhoven and Helmond in the Netherlands. This allows for the redistribution of workload to mitigate peaks in demand across all sites, ensuring flexibility and maintaining the established quality standards.

Innovation and creativity on 5800 square meters

In addition to a production hall spanning 2600 square meters, the production site includes a 600-square-meter office area, reception and social spaces, and a 2600-square-meter warehouse for raw materials and trade fair construction materials. The machinery encompasses the entire spectrum of a modern carpentry workshop. A notable highlight is the material supply system for the panel saw, nesting CNC router, and 5-axis CNC router, which operates entirely through CAD control and full automation. After prior work preparation, the machine autonomously determines the required material for cutting. This material is then automatically retrieved from the panel storage using suction devices and delivered to the appropriate machine. Utilizing this innovative technology is virtually unparalleled in the Hanover region.

The carpentry workshop also stands out in terms of sustainability. The entire roof of the building is equipped with a high-performance photovoltaic system. Additionally, wood waste generated internally is briquetted on-site and used for heating the workshop.

Current status: Construction site update

The interior construction of the 5800-square-meter total area is in full swing. Next week, the first office staff will move into the new premises. Starting from early December, the production hall will gradually be occupied by a core staff of approximately 30 employees.
