February 2019 - KMF invests in state-of-the-art painting plant

The construction work for the new hall on the premises of the Kemptener Maschinenfabrik is currently in full swing. The new paint shop is expected to go into operation in autumn 2019. Kemptener Maschinenfabrik is investing a total of 4 million euros in this innovative technology.

With the new system, painting can be carried out more environmentally friendly and at the same time more efficiently. In addition, the system enables significantly better quality paint processing. The investment enables an AirCoat painting process in which fewer solvents are used and thus compliance with the pollutant balance can be ensured.

With the new painting plant, the Kemptener Maschinenfabrik meets its own quality requirements and those of its customers.
