About the plant
The beginning of KIRCHHOFF Automotive's Gliwice/Poland site dates back to 2004, after a 3800 m² production hall on the premises of Mechanical Works BUMAR was leased. After the first successes on this small production site, a decision was made to purchase a plot of land in the special economic zone of Katowice - Gliwice subzone - and to continue development. The company, which has been built from the ground up, is developing dynamically. Currently its usable area is almost 50 thousand square meters. It is located on 2 plots of land with a total area of 13 hectares. This gives the location great industrial potential.
The production plant in Gliwice specializes in the production of metal structural parts for the body and chassis to form assemblies such as engine frames, dashboard carriers, underbodies and bumper systems. In addition to traditional automotive processes such as stamping, spot welding, welding and cathodic dip coating, the latest automotive technologies such as press hardening and laser welding are used to produce very light yet strong parts, which is particularly important from a safety and environmental protection point of view. The plant is characterized by a high level of automation and robot-aided processes, over 240 robots are equiped at the plants. The previous investment value of KIRCHHOFF Automotive Gliwice exceeds 600 million Polish zlotys.
