Groundbreaking-ceremony for start of construction

in the Industrialpark Niedernsill

29 June 2020

After thorough development work and intensive planning phase the company ZELL METALL with
its owner DI Wilhelm Klepsch laid the foundation stone for the realization of the project "ZELL METALL 2020"
at the new location, the industrial area in Niedernsill.

In order to remain internationally successful and competitive, but also to be able to maintain the high
quality standard, an expansion and modernisation is necessary. After obtaining the last outstanding
permits, the symbolic ground-breaking ceremony took place on Thursday, May 7, 2020 in the Niedernsill
industrial park.

In the first phase (construction phase 2020), the building for the processing of ZELLAMID® plastic prefabricated
parts of the company ZELL PARTS by Klepsch will be implemented, which is scheduled to start operation in
November 2020. The new building will be equipped with modern precision systems and machines.
The planned production hall will be built in a reinforced concrete structure in solid construction and a
building envelope in sandwich construction. The roof construction consists of a laminated wood truss roof
with the provision of a solar heating option, for a positive and sustainable climate balance. The size of the
object is 1420 m².

An office wing with 10 office workplaces will be created. All workplaces are bright and flooded with natural
daylight and meet the ergonomic requirements for general well-being of a modern work area for all employees.
In the course of the first construction phase, the site and the surrounding streets are already being prepared
for the further construction phases, in which the other parts of the company will later be relocated from Kaprun
to Niedernsill. By this new location with the most modern infrastructure ZELL METALL creates the foundation for
the future-proof development of the company. By most progressive technology and new possibilities in the
production operation the company strengthens its position in the market and offers sustainable jobs.
With this investment the Klepsch family underlines its commitment to the region Pinzgau and sets a new
milestone in the history of ZELL METALL and the KLEPSCH-GROUP.
