Successful relocation to Düsseldorf

The move is complete, APT is 100% operational in all core areas, and the first hoses have already been delivered. 

Thanks to the great commitment of all employees, service providers and even colleagues from other Masterflex Group locations, the move went 100% according to plan and smoothly. The new hall in industrial architecture is not only large, bright and modern, but also optimally adapted to APT’s work and process flows. 

In the next weeks already, the capacities in the production of shrink tubes (by 30%) and in the extrusion area (by 10% up to 20%) will be expanded. In addition, APT now has climate-controlled and enclosed areas in PTFE production, resulting in a further reduction in the risk of contamination and optimized process quality.

The changeover to a new ERP system has also been 100% successful. Data transfer, inventory and stocktaking have already been completed via the company’s new “control center”. In the future, this will mean an even better data basis and manufacturing processes that can be mapped optimally.

In short: more quality with shorter delivery times.  

Managing Director Martin Brück: “We are highly motivated to continue our sustainable growth together with our customers.”

Efficient intralogistics through modern racking systems

Spaces create possibilities: With twice as much storage space as before and a ceiling height of over six meters, APT’s new production hall in Düsseldorf offers the opportunity to rethink the entire intralogistics process – and make it (even) more efficient, digital and sustainable.

In the future, a modern racking system built to the heights and linked to the new merchandise management system will move all parts of the production process faster, more accurately and more efficiently.

This gives APT a high degree of scalability and at the same time enormous potential to sustainably improve and shorten internal transport and automation processes.

Managing Director Martin Brück: “We are also using the move to optimize our digital processes and are taking a close look at the topic of Industry 4.0.”

The aim is not only to make production processes more efficient, but also to think about sustainability from the very beginning.

Brück: “Here, too, the new production site is excellently positioned.”

We move to Düsseldorf

APT, the fluoropolymer specialist within the Masterflex Group, will relocate to Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, at the end of the year.

This step has become necessary because the production and sales premises in Neuss (current location) are no longer suitable in many respects due to the strong growth in recent years. In addition, APT wants to consistently continue its growth course and high quality goals together with its customers.    

APT will therefore move into a bright and modern unit of approximately 3,700 m² in an industrial park in the south of Düsseldorf. The new production and sales facility is only about 12 km away from the old location, but offers the following unbeatable advantages, among others:

Flexible design options

The room layout can be designed flexibly, thus long-term planning security also for capacity expansions and sustainable growth, almost doubled production and storage areas, installation of optimised and efficient manufacturing processes according to APT specifications (“Design by APT Needs” & “Industry 4.0 Ready”), …

Certified (DGNB) sustainable construction method

Equipping the hall with LED lights for bright and at the same time energy-saving illumination, which is particularly important for the demanding quality control at APT, modern production, office and social rooms for the employees, …

Easy access to the production hall

Delivery and collection can take place at ground level (via sectional doors) or via a ramp (sectional doors with electric dock levellers), …

Very good transport connections

Only a two-minute walk to the nearest bus stop, five to 10 minutes to the nearest motorway slip road and 25 minutes by car to Düsseldorf airport, attractive infrastructure due to the proximity to the Rhine, …

The possibility of long-term expansion played a particularly important role in the choice of location. The new “APT home” fully meets this objective. This means that APT can continue to generate innovative and sustainable growth in the future.

As you can see, things remain exciting at APT! Continue to follow the regular business updates and make a note of our new address:
