Major expansion of the VIKING Langkampfen site

At the 29th of September 2017 at 11 am, the official ground-breaking ceremony for the extension at VIKING GmbH in Langkampfen took place. Following the relocation of the gardening power tool manufacturer from its original site in Kufstein to Langkampfen in 2001, the next stage of expansion for the member of the STIHL Group followed in 2007 and 2012.

Major expansion of the VIKING Langkampfen site

Totalling EUR 22.8 million, it is by far the biggest investment in the company history of VIKING. The decision was taken based on the positive growth in recent years and good prospects for the future. 16,000 m² of ground will be used for the construction project, which will add 20,000 m² of usable space.

The workforce at the site will grow by 100, with a considerable increase in production. There will also be new endurance test chambers and electrical labs as well as a modern training workshop, among other things. VIKING iMow robotic mowers will both do their work and be tested on the partially green roof of the new building. A special highlight will be an automatic small parts warehouse, which will be state of the art.

The extension is already scheduled for completion in late 2018. With it, the parent company STIHL and its Tyrolean subsidiary VIKING are reaffirming their clear commitment to the Tyrol site.
