Soudal doubles production capacity in Turnhout with new ‘factory of the future’
Soudal, an expert in chemical building materials, is building a new factory for adhesives and mastics that will double the current production capacity in Turnhout. The advanced production facility – with an investment of 40 million euros – will cover more than 20,000 m² and will operate with a fully automatic process. There is no contact with the ambient air from the raw material mixing to the hermetically sealed end product. This technology is not only more energy efficient, it is also unique in the world. In addition, the installation is fully digitised and optimised according to the principles of a ‘factory of the future’ and Industry 4.0. The factory will be operating at full capacity in 2023.
