Investment in the future: PI Ceramic in Lederhose, Thuringia, expands its production and office space

PI Ceramic GmbH is building an extension for production and office space at its location in Lederhose, Thuringia. On 5 July 2019, the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction project was held in the presence of numerous invited guests.

"Having warmed up with two smaller buildings over the past few months, we are now celebrating the ground-breaking ceremony for our fourth major construction phase," Managing Director Dr. Patrick Pertsch opened his speech to guests from politics and business.

The new extension will expand the company site from its current 12,000 square meters by an additional 7,500 square meters and will offer space on three floors for multilayer production as well as office space. The move into the new part of the building is planned for mid-2020.

PI Ceramic, a subsidiary of Physik Instrumente (PI) GmbH & Co. KG, located in Lederhose, Thuringia, currently employs around 330 people and is investing 10 million euros in the expansion of the factory space. "This building is an expression of our joint success here at PI Ceramic. I am excited for us to fill it with solutions to the demands of our customers, our ideas and our sophisticated piezoceramic products," says Pertsch.
