Invests locally and globally in locations

Started a little more than 40 years ago in Rheinau, Baden, the Zimmer Group is now, by its own account, one of the world's leading manufacturers of automation, machine and furniture damping components. In addition, the Zimmer Group is an important and valued partner for system solutions for numerous well-known national and international companies in the fields of mechanical and plant engineering, as well as the aviation and automotive industries.

Despite the current partly very difficult general conditions, the Zimmer Group, which currently employs more than 1,260 people at 13 locations worldwide, has been able to maintain its expansion course, which has been ongoing for years. "The strong increase in demand worldwide in almost all product areas makes a comprehensive and global expansion strategy necessary for the coming years in order to continue to exploit the enormous potential in Europe, Asia and America as quickly as possible," said Achim Gauss, Managing Director Technology and Sales.

"In Germany, our production site, we are currently planning to expand our capacity by a further 5,000 square meters or so so that we can meet the steadily increasing demand, especially from Asia, but also from America and parts of Europe. In addition, the Zimmer Group currently has around 40 new jobs in the tendering process, for the Rheinau site alone," says Günther Zimmer, owner and managing director.

"The investments made in R&D in recent years have expanded our product portfolio enormously. Highly innovative products have been created and are now very well accepted by the market worldwide," Martin Zimmer, owner and managing director continues. "China has become our number 1 growth market in recent years and we are literally bursting at the seams in our Shanghai office. For this reason, a new building is now also being planned in China, although it will not be built in the metropolis of Shanghai, but 250 kilometers away in Jintan (Jiangsu Province)," explains Achim Gauss.

The location decision came apart from the good surrounding field conditions not least by the cross-linking of the region Jintan with the homeland region of the Zimmer Group (Ortenau) and the settlement of German enterprises also from this region. In addition to close cooperation between the Jintan region and the Ortenau Economic Region Association (WRO) and good networking with the university in Offenburg, there is a broad university landscape in Jintan, including in mechanical engineering, as well as a German-speaking school.

A building of its own has now become urgently necessary, since with increasing sales, fast local service is also becoming more and more of a customer requirement. In order to further develop the market in China, but also to competitively implement customer requirements, such as customer-specific applications or professional project management for the local market, more space, better infrastructure and qualified local personnel are needed.

India is also becoming increasingly important for the Zimmer Group. "For our sales office there, we will be able to present a plan for expansion in the coming year," Achim Gauss adds.

In order to make even better use of the market opportunities in America, the company had already established its own sales office in Querétaro, Mexico, in August of this year and is planning to do the same for Canada in the foreseeable future. In the USA, the Zimmer Group has been in possession of its own company building for some time and is primarily expanding its sales and service staff there. With a well thought-out expansion plan, Zimmer Group not only wants to tap into new customers and markets, but also make better use of the synergies among the respective locations worldwide. "In this way, we will better position ourselves in a globalized world and create lasting growth opportunities for the Group through improved competitiveness. To achieve this, it is necessary to expand existing branches and enhance their capabilities, but also to establish new branches in countries that offer us opportunities for further development in the near future. The whole project will also be secured in the long term by an orderly transition process to the next generation," concludes Martin Zimmer.

Günther and Martin Zimmer have a total of ten children, five of whom are already involved in the group of companies.
