More scope for sustainable economic growth in Emmerich

H.v.Gimborn. New company buildings: The new office building of H. von Gimborn GmbH in Emmerich

H. von Gimborn GmbH opens new building complex creating more jobs

Emmerich am Rhein, 16/05/2019 Long-term growth requires the right investments. This is why H. von Gimborn GmbH invested in the expansion of the Emmerich facility last year. After eight months of construction at Albert-Einstein-Straße in Emmerich am Rhein, new production, storage and office space has been created across an area of ​​3,700 m2. The entire building complex was completed at the end of 2018 and has been fully operational since the beginning of 2019. Due to the strong increase in demand for products in the German, European and Asian markets, the new production facility for cat snacks in particular is already well utilised and is creating further new jobs at the Emmerich business location.

Increasing demand for GimCat snacks in all markets

The paste and tablet snacks of the in-house brand GimCat are big hits in Germany, and they are particular favourites in China, too. These multiple award-winning products in a rapidly growing pet market are very popular due to their premium ‘Made in Germany’ quality. Thanks to its new production facilities, the company was able to meet this increased demand and double its capacity.

The new facilities are therefore more than a necessary extension. For Gimborn, they are a prerequisite for further production technologies, which are currently being developed, and will continue to hold Gimborn on a growth trajectory in the future.

In addition, both the Emmerich business location and the rest of the region will benefit from the expansion of the facility and the positive development of the pet specialist. And Gimborn is on an expansion course, not only in Emmerich am Rhein but also in China and the US. The company founded subsidiaries in these locations last year, representing further milestones in the company’s history.

New jobs and traineeships at the Emmerich site

Thus, almost 50 new jobs have been created at the Emmerich site alone in the last three years, both in the retail and commercial areas. And this positive trend goes on. In addition to many interesting job offers, H. von Gimborn GmbH is offering exciting traineeships as an industrial management assistant and e-commerce retailer again this year.

Michael Baumgärtner, CEO of the Gimborn Group, is very satisfied with the company’s development and is looking confidently into the future: ‘It was appropriate and important to expand the Emmerich site in all areas. Only by increasing our capacity can we sufficiently satisfy the ever-increasing demand for our high‑quality award-winning products, especially in the Chinese market. I am very pleased that we have succeeded in this step and that the Emmerich business location is also benefiting from this positive development. We want to continue to grow in and with the Emmerich region and its people. It often takes the right investment to succeed.’
