Grote Industries continued expansion of its truck lighting and vehicle safety systems business with the opening of its new production and customer service facility in Niederwinkling, Germany, near Munich. This facility supplies LED products to producers of commercial vehicles, construction machinery, and agricultural machinery throughout Europe.
Grote’s new European headquarters is a lean manufacturing facility for its European LED truck lighting products. The facility’s opening commemorates the start of production in the new Niederwinkling production hall.
“The opening of our new Niederwinkling offices is a major step toward providing local service and support for our European and global customers,” said Dominic Grote, president and chief operating officer. “It is also a very significant milestone toward transforming Grote from a primarily North American company to a true multinational enterprise.”
“We are very pleased that we have been able to improve our presence in Europe during last year. Now one of our major production locations is near many of our larger customers,” said Klaus Vetterl, managing director for Grote Europe.
Opening ceremonies included a traditional Bavarian reception and plant tour for guests, including many of Grote’s European customers, as well as regional and local officials along with family and friends of the Grote Europe team.
