Mühldorf am Inn,

The Mühldorf-based company has earmarked 20 million euros expansion of its headquarters in 2019. At present, the pallet warehouse and the surface engineering area are already being expanded. Surface testing will take place in the new building. ODU will use the space thus freed up for a new, ultra-modern conveyer plating system, thereby significantly increasing its capacities.

The Training division will also be given a new, modern training center. Training places, training and meeting rooms on an area that is five times larger than the previous one. The trainees will be able to develop, learn and be creative as early as April. "We are continuing with what we stopped doing last year - we are further expanding our capacities," confirms Managing Director Dr.-Ing. Kurt Woelfl.

The order situation is pleasing. ODU is active in several markets, above all in medical, measurement and testing technology and in the security and military sectors. Emobility, automotive and industrial electronics also continue to be important growth markets. "We speak the language of our customers, look for short distances and are present all over the world," says Managing Director Denis Giba. ODU is focused on the future and the projects of its customers.

Last year, ODU was able to increase sales by more than 15% over the previous year to 200 million euros. ODU employs 2,300 people worldwide, 1,200 of them at its headquarters in Mühldorf.

"And should the trend continue to be positive in the coming months, we will make further investments", Dr. Woelfl is pleased to report. The 41 trainees added in September are expected to be supplemented by a further 54 new trainees this year.
