DEVELON: Investment in new German site
speed and consistency
DEVELON sets the
course for further growth in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. A modern DEVELON
customer and training centre with a demo area for testing the machines for the
German-speaking countries is being built on a site of around 10,650 m². The
completion of the new location is planned for the 3rd quarter of 2024. This
will bring DEVELON much closer to its
customers and dealers and clearly demonstrate its commitment to Germany as a
Already on the
To ensure that customers do not have to wait, operations at a transitional location were already started in March 2023, so that large parts of the federal states of Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse can already be supplied with spare parts and services. A well-equipped new rental park with the latest generation of construction machinery is available to bridge order peaks, to conserve the company's own capital requirements or to be able to test a product over a longer period of time. The experienced sales team is also already in place.
Departure, continuity and consistency
With the decision to take over sales, rental and service for a clearly defined market area, DEVELON is by no means moving away from the proven and successful market development with its trade partners. In future, they will also be better supported by a German-speaking office staff from Mannheim.
In total, DEVELON plans to create over 40 new jobs in the region at the new location. To ensure the best possible framework conditions, an independent company, HD Hyundai Infracore Deutschland GmbH, was founded. This is another sign of DEVELON's long-term commitment to Germany as a business location and underpins its ambitions to significantly expand its presence and market position in the German-speaking market.
As early as March 2023, DEVELON was able to introduce Andreas M. Lohner as the new Sales Manager for the D-A-CH region and Eastern Europe and, at the same time, Managing Director of HD Hyundai Infracore Deutschland GmbH. He sees DEVELON very well positioned for the future: "Both the target location in Lempacher Straße and our transitional location in Seckenheimer Landstraße in Mannheim are convincing due to their optimal location and quick accessibility. By deciding on a fully equipped transitional location, with a workshop that will start operating in June, a well-stocked spare parts warehouse, a rental park, the latest generation of machines and a wide range of new machines, we can already provide fast, pragmatic and reliable support to customers and partners in the Rhine-Neckar metro region. Every new customer actively helps to create more jobs in the region."
