  Modernizations at NIVELCO
14. Nov. 2014.       
 
Thanks to our respectful economical results NIVELCO expanded its production capacity with a new floor with 500 m2 area. The construction work was finished in October 2014 and a lightweight building floor was established over the existing production hall. The expanding was demanded primarily by the increased orders of the PiloTREK W-100 series Pulse Burst Radar level transmitter family which needs large space for the tests during the assembling and the quality control tests. In the framework of the modernizations further 1200 m2 were renovated in the production department. The other aspect of the successful investment is that NIVELCO was able to finance the entire project from own resources.
