Unimicron Germany Gets OK to Reconstruct Innerlayer Plant

Reading time ( words)

Geldern, Germany's mayor Sven Kaiser, and Peter Aengenheister, head of urban development and planning, have approved a building permit for the large-scale investment of Unimicron Germany. Gerard van Dierendonck, managing director, and architect Berthold Dams received the permit during a construction site visit on August 11, 2017. The facility was destroyed in a fire last year.

After the finalization of the construction documentation, extensive calculations and necessary expertise, Unimicron Germany, a manufacturer of high-quality PCBs, submitted the last documents for the building permit to the city of Geldern in June.

"I am very happy that the cooperation with all involved authorities has worked really well. So that we could approve this, for all parties important, building project in a short time," said Kaiser.

The quick release of the building permit was also possible due to the fast processing of numerous technical authorities of the district government of Düsseldorf (Bezirksregierung Düsseldorf) and the administration of the district Kleve (Kreis Kleve).

"We have always stated that we want to keep our production site in Geldern and we have already ordered machines and equipment for millions of Euros for our future here. I am very pleased that the authorities are now giving us the green light for the reconstruction of our production facility," said van Dierendonck.
