Investment in relay production in France / New line due to start in 2021
Hager (Blieskastel / Germany; www.hagergroup.com), a manufacturer of electrical installation systems and components, is to invest EUR 28m at its plant in Obernai / France near Strasbourg. A new relay production line is currently being built there and due to start up at the end of 2021. Construction began in summer 2019. The new building will be an extension of the existing relay production hall and accommodate both the new line and office space on an area of 1,400 m².

“Our residential and commercial customers in Europe value our products and in particular are in constant need of RCCBs (residual-current circuit breakers). As relays are a key component, we intend to double our production capacities and are building a new production line in Obernai,” said Jacky Metzger, vice president Electromechanical Factories.

Hager says the new line is geared towards Industry 4.0. With the acquisition of new robots, it will benefit from the latest innovations in equipment connectivity, information processing and the management of data and industrial processes. Thanks to these technologies, the relays produced on the new line will be immune to environments containing dust and chlorine, for example.

The Hager group is a leading provider of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, industrial and commercial buildings. Its business extends from energy distribution via cable management to smart building automation and security technology. It processes plastics and sheet metal, and its product range includes extruded cable ducts and injection-moulded parts extending from housings for residual-current circuit breakers to fuse boxes. A family-run company, it was founded in 1955 by Hermann Hager and Oswald Hager together with their father Peter Hager. The global group has a workforce of 11,500 located at 22 sites in 10 countries. In 2018, the company generated sales of around EUR 2 bn.
