Opening of BVS Systemtechnik

Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig congratulates

The new BVS Systemtechnik plant was inaugurated with guests from politics and business. On the modern production facilities, the specialists manufacture products made of thin sheet metal for a wide range of technical applications. In the future, the machine technology of BVS Systemtechnik will implement networked automation and transparent order control.

The ceremony was attended by the management of BVS Systemtechnik, represented by Harald Steiner, and the Prime Minister of the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Manuela Schwesig. Other guests at the event were the Lord Mayor of Schwerin, Dr. Rico Badenschier, State Secretary Dr. Stefan Rudolph (Ministry of Economic Affairs MV), Andreas Neff, Managing Director of Harsch Bau as well as DI Armin Rau and Reinhold Groß, both Managing Directors at TRUMPF.

“I am pleased that the Schwerin Industrial Park continues to grow with the establishment of BVS Systemtechnik,” said Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig in her speech. The BVS Systemtechnik plant proves that Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is continuing to gain economic strength. “We are working on attracting more industrial workers to our state in particular. I would like to thank all those who have been involved in this settlement,” continued the Minister President.

Flexible production on ultra-modern machines
The Prime Minister and around 120 other visitors were invited to take a look at the ongoing production of sheet metal parts and sheet metal housings. On a total area of around 4,000 m², a punch laser machine, bending machines, equipment for deburring, grinding and degreasing, riveting and press-in machines and assembly stations have been installed in recent weeks. An investment sum of € 8 million was invested in the new building and the equipment with a state-of-the-art machine park.

The new production facility stands for innovation, which has been realized and will be further developed using TRUMPF machine tools, among other things. In BVS Systemtechnik, the basic prerequisites for automation in the direction of Smart Factory with networked production processes have been set. This should make production even faster and more flexible in the medium term. A decisive advantage – especially for smaller batch sizes.

The BVS Systemtechnik team manufactures sheet metal products for various industries as well as prototypes, small series and parts in series production. “We want to plan new projects for the electrical engineering industry or medical electronics here at the Schwerin plant. BVS Systemtechnik is currently manufacturing extensive center consoles and accessories in strategic partnership with the airline seat supplier ZIM,” says Harald Steiner. BVS Systemtechnik, a subsidiary of BVS Blechtechnik from Böblingen, is targeting new customers in northern Germany and, as an extended workbench, is taking on orders from the parent company’s existing business. Since the start of production in April, 15 employees have been working at Systemtechnik, and 40 colleagues are to be employed at the Schwerin location in the coming years. “The increasing production volume of the BVS Group will be supported by BVS Systemtechnik in the future. The production hall, which has now been completed, can be expanded,” Harald Steiner predicts.
