Press release


Semperit invests over 100 million into the world’s first carbon-neutral
hose production facilities


• New hall for highly automated production of hydraulic hoses in the
Czech Republic
• Production capacity increased by 32 million metres of hydraulic hose
to almost 200 million metres of hose per year
• Total investment amounts to around EUR 110 million
• EUR 260 million in total invested into flagship factory in Odry in the
Czech Republic since 1998


Vienna, Austria/Odry, Czech Republic, 13 July 2022 – Alongside ongoing M&A
activities, the publicly listed Semperit Group has set out its plan to
boost organic growth at its huge hose factory in Odry in the Czech
Republic. A total of EUR 110 million will be invested into extending one
of the world’s largest production facilities for industrial and hydraulic
hoses over the next few years, with a focus on sustainability and
automation. Operations are set to start up in the new production hall in
2025, where an extra 32 million metres of hydraulic hose will be added to
the current production capacity.


This project is the final stage of a plan to increase capacity that has
seen investments made into all hose factories, including in China and in
Thailand (in that case together with long-time joint venture partner Sri
Trang Group). “By investing heavily in Odry, the Semperit Executive Board
will be guaranteeing the ongoing organic growth of Semperflex, our
successful hose division, and ensuring that we can continue to support our
customers who are on track for exceptional expansion in the future,” says
Karl Haider, CEO of the Semperit Group. Gerfried Eder, Managing Director
of Semperflex, adds: “Being located close to our customers in Europe, a
key market for us, brings us benefits like more manageable supply chains,
faster deliveries, reduced carbon emissions, and savings on
transportation. From this strong position, we can aim to
disproportionately increase our market and supply share and achieve
continued growth above the market average.”


Hydraulic hoses go green


Hose production will be powered exclusively by renewable energy at what
will be the world’s first carbon-neutral hose production facilities. Even
though capacity will be increased, the overall water consumption in Odry
will drop by around 30% once the new hall is finished. With the flow of
goods to be optimised, lead times will be improved too. “Every step of the
production process that can be automated will be automated. This means we
will be raising the bar for staff productivity, process stability, and
consistent product quality higher than ever before,” says Michael
Adelbauer, Director of Operations at Semperflex. “We will also be making
life easier for our employees and removing elements of their jobs
requiring physical effort and exertion, meaning that almost every step in
our workflows could be performed by anyone of any gender.”


Forever sharpening the competitive edge


Semperit’s Semperflex segment, which accounted for around 29% of the
Semperit Group’s total revenue in the first quarter of 2022, produces
hydraulic and industrial hoses at sites in Austria, Thailand, and China in
addition to the Czech Republic. Sustained efforts to increase capacity and
maintain the highest of quality standards has seen Semperit become the
third top company for hydraulic hoses in the world and reach second
position for industrial hoses in Europe. Its customer database is full of
well-known manufacturers of cranes, agricultural machinery, excavators,
and construction machinery.
