HOMAG Group opens engineering center in Poznan
Poznan, July 26, 2018 - On 25 July 2018, the HOMAG Group opened a new engineering center in Poznan, Poland. Around 80 engineers will work in research and development in the 900 m2 office building by the end of 2018.
The world's leading supplier of integrated solutions for production in the woodworking industry and woodworking shops offers an innovative environment for engineers with the new engineering center. "Poznan will become an important part of our global engineering network. The focus of development will be on automation, software and digital solutions", emphasizes Pekka Paasivaara, CEO of the HOMAG Group. The new location is about 40 kilometers away from the HOMAG Group's second-largest plant in Środa Wielkopolska, where HOMAG employs approximately 800 people. Due to the new setup the engineers from Poznan can directly accompany the implementation of their projects.
Ralf Stürzel, Senior Vice President and Head of Human Resources at HOMAG Group: "In the course of our global growth, we have created a modern working environment here that is attractive for highly qualified employees. At the same time, we are actively addressing the shortage of skilled workers in the other markets, where it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the appropriate specialists."
The location of HOMAG Engineering Poland in Poznan was not only due to its proximity to the HOMAG plant at Środa. Poznan is home to many renowned scientific institutions, including 5 of Poland's 30 best universities. The city also offers a wide range of cultural activities.
