Further expansion of OELCHECK laboratory

[Translate to "English"] Das OELCHECK Labor wächst um 350 qm

Although the pandemic had caused delays, the new OELCHECK building at Kerschelweg 18 has long been a hive of activity. At approximately 2,000 m², it is the largest of our three buildings. The management as well as the Service and Sales, Tribology, Agent Support and Accounting departments have already moved into the new premises.

The move freed up an additional 350 m² in the original OELCHECK building. This space is urgently needed for further expansion of the laboratory, as our company continues to grow dynamically not only in terms of the number of employees, but also in terms of the amount of laboratory equipment. The additional area is on the upper floor, directly above existing laboratory rooms. We are working intensively on the extension. The carpet will be replaced by laboratory-grade PVC flooring, additional ventilation is being installed, doors are being converted, and a laboratory washroom with solvent disposal is being installed. Almost everything is being replaced.

In summer 2021, the laboratory equipment will then be relocated and new equipment procured. When the new laboratory area is commissioned, the oil samples can also be transported via a lift. They will be transported from the unpacking room on the ground floor to the upper floor and back down again via their own lifting platform.
