From October 2020
With a groundbreaking ceremony for the next production hall, SKAN Deutschland GmbH will initiate their next growth step in October 2020. The German branch of the Swiss SKAN AG was just founded in 2012 in the Görlitz/Hagenwerder industrial area, where it successfully develops and builds isolators and clean room systems for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. CEO Thomas Huber even described its Görlitz location as “the backbone of the SKAN Group”.
The company is characterized by a high level of vertical integration. From sheet metal processing to the finished system with complex technology and electronics, the complete production process takes place in Görlitz. The latest product is a process automation isolator. Since 2017, research and development has also been carried out on site to further optimize the products – with its own research laboratory for this purpose. The employees also work together with national and international institutions to answer specific questions for their area.
The team is just as diverse as the activities and processes at SKAN Deutschland GmbH. A few years later it has grown from eight people at the beginning to almost 200 employees. There are experts in the fields of welding, electronics, biotechnology, process technology, quality assurance, administration, and engineers. A high level of personal responsibility, flexibility and team spirit are in the foreground. To this end, the company trains from within and is constantly looking for additional specialists.
Over 18 million euros have already been invested in the location. A production building and an administration building were built on the 3.5-hectare site in several expansion steps. With the groundbreaking in October 2020, construction will begin on an administration building and further production halls, which will be occupied in spring 2022.
