Topping out ceremony 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 from thin sheet metal for a wide range of technical applications. In the future, BVS Systemtechnik’s machine technology will realize networked automation and transparent order control.

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

“I am delighted that the Schwerin Industrial Park is continuing to grow with the arrival of BVS Systemtechnik,” said Minister President 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 country. I would like to thank everyone involved in this settlement,” continued the Prime Minister.

Flexible production on state-of-the-art 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. In recent weeks, a punch laser machine, bending machines, deburring, grinding and degreasing systems, riveting and press-fit machines and assembly stations have been installed on a total area of around 4,000 m². An investment of € 8 million was made in the new building and in equipping it with state-of-the-art machinery.

The new production facility stands for innovation, which was realized and is being further developed with machine tools from TRUMPF, among others. BVS Systemtechnik has laid the foundations for automation in the direction of the smart factory with networked production processes. 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 plant in Schwerin. BVS Systemtechnik is currently producing extensive center consoles and accessories in a strategic partnership with the flight seat supplier ZIM,” says Harald Steiner. BVS Systemtechnik, a subsidiary of BVS Blechtechnik from Böblingen, is targeting new customers in northern Germany and is taking on orders from the parent company’s existing business as an extended workbench. Since the start of production in April, 15 employees have been working at Systemtechnik, and 40 colleagues are to be employed at the Schwerin site over the next few years. “The increasing production volume of the BVS Group will be supported by BVS Systemtechnik in the future. Expansions are possible for the production hall that has now been completed,” says Harald Steiner.
