Francotyp-Postalia creates new jobs in Brandenburg

Francotyp-Postalia (FP) is celebrating the expansion of its production site in Wittenberge, which will also see the creation of new jobs. The Mayor of Wittenberge as well as the State Secretary of the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy of the State of Brandenburg will be attending the opening event.

Berlin, 26 January 2018 - Francotyp-Postalia (FP) is presenting the expansion of its production site for franking machines in Wittenberge to the public on 26 January 2018. The specialist for secure mail business and digital communication processes is expanding for the purpose of shortening routes between the production and shipment stages, thereby optimising the logistics within the company as part of its ACT strategy. Up to now, 60 employees are based at the Wittenberge site. FP is planning to add 14 additional jobs as part of the expansion, with nine vacancies already filled.

"The site has been a profitable production site since the beginning with the number of employees ever increasing. With the expansion now completed, we look forward to optimising the site even further," explains Dr Kai Fliegner, Managing Director of FP Produktionsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG. Apart from FP CEO/CFO Rüdiger Andreas Günther, the Mayor of Wittenberge, Dr Oliver Hermann, as well as the State Secretary of the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy of the State of Brandenburg, Hendrik Fischer, will attend the opening event.

Expansion optimises logistical structures
Since 2012, the Wittenberge production site houses the assembly of franking machines, manufacturing of spare parts and consumable material such as ink cartridges, as well as the global shipment of franking machines. As of 1 January 2018, Francotyp-Postalia has also moved the central factory and the Service Part Center, which ships spare parts and consumable materials all around the world, from the site in Achim, Lower Saxony, to the Wittenberge site. The shipment of the enveloping machines will also be moved there soon.

Francotyp-Postalia is thereby standardising and optimising its logistics, as spare parts, accessories and consumable material no longer need to be sent to the Achim site for shipment to the customer and will instead all be shipped from Wittenberge. Beyond this production site, Francotyp-Postalia also operates eight sites for mail consolidation and digital mail processing.
