Ninkaplast manufactures a variety of components for corner cabinets, drawers and waste bins along with office chairs and television front and back covers.
German plastics processor Ninkaplast has inaugurated a new sustainable headquarters administration building closer to its production plant in Bad Salzuflen, North Rhine-Westphalia.
The new 1,000 square metre office block, now on the same site as the injection moulder’s manufacturing unit, replaces a more distant management base in Bad Salzuflen. The move is aims to improve operational efficiency at the old-established family owned company.
Ninkaplast, formed 80 years ago, made its name as a moulder of kitchen and bathroom furniture components, but also supplies plastics parts to the office furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances, lighting, medical and solar technology sectors.
The firm manufactures a variety of components for corner cabinets, drawers and waste bins along with office chairs and television front and back covers.
The new building, with two upper floors of 240 square metre of management and administration offices, includes a 440 square metre ground floor incorporating meeting rooms and a special product exhibition area.
Ninkaplast’s base includes energy efficient features including floor heating and cooling systems as well as a green garden design roof space with a range of crassula succulent plants offering a refreshing upper atmosphere. The block makes use of an open plan layout.
Working time can be used more efficiently, information (sharing) and communication will now be easier within the headquarters and cooperation will be enhanced throughout the business, according to Ninkaplast CEO Klaus Henning Wulf.
Ninkaplast, which employs a 250-strong workforce, operates injection moulding machines of 150 tonnes up to 2,300 tonnes clamping force. It uses microfoam moulding, metal instert overmoulding and weld line-free moulding and operates a range of painting, printing and hot foiling finishing lines.
