On April 23, 2015, the ground breaking for the stage two expansion to double the production- and office space took place at Starlinger’s premises in St. Martin, Upper Austria.
This actually happened one year earlier than originally planned and gives viscotec the possibility for further extensions of the existing and future product range.
After the completion in early 2016, the production-, warehouse- and technical center sizes have been doubled to 4,000 m². Also, the office space has been enlarged to a total of 1,100 m².
