Grand Opening of Winkelmann Flowforming Technology in Auburn, AL
Winkelmann Flowform Technology has been active in our new Auburn facility since 2017. We have had much success in this short period of time and we would like to take the opportunity to reflect on what the present holds and what the future can offer. On October 3rd, 2019, our USA facility of the Business Unit Flowforming of Winkelmann Group located in Auburn, Alabama has officially had our Grand Opening.
Next to Heinrich and Rupert Winkelmann, we were proud to host the Governor of Alabama, Ms. Kay Ivey, Representatives of Senator Richard Shelby, Congressman Mike Rogers, Mayor Ron Anders Jr., the Dean of Engineering of Auburn University, Christopher Roberts, and the Associate Dean of Research, Dr. Steven Taylor. Our wide range of guests included customers, business partners and political representatives from local, state and federal levels.
Addressing the event and speaking on behalf of WFT was, Mr. Winkelmann, Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey, Congressman Mike Rogers and Mayor Ron Anders Jr. This was followed by an official ribbon cutting sponsored by the state and local Chamber of Commerce and an opportunity to allow guest to take guided tours to learn of current and forthcoming business of the facility.
For our Business Unit as well as our Auburn facility it has been a successful opening event with huge interest from politicians, business community, education and media. This point of time was chosen since we received all necessary certifications for the area of Aerospace and Defense in spring 2019. Although, we mainly produce components for the Oil & Gas industry and CNG applications, we have been able to acquire strategic programs in the area of Aerospace and Defense that will allow us to grow revenues and increase our skilled workforce to 50 people.
