Dennert Poraver GmbH builds third plant in Schlüsselfeld

Planning works for the construction of a third production site for Poraver expanded glass granulate are in full swing at Dennert Poraver GmbH. On a site area of over 43 000 m², the new plant will have an annual production capacity of 160 000 m³ of Poraver and should be operational starting in 2019. With the third plant, the company’s total annual production capacity at its sites in ­Germany and Canada will be increased to 500 000 m³.

Poraver expanded glass granulate is a lightweight aggregate for high-quality building materials and industrial products. Due to the wide range of applications in various industrial areas, demand has been growing steadily in recent years. In 2014, the annual production capacity of the main plant in Postbauer-Heng was already expanded to 240 000 m³ by a fifth production line.

For the scheduled commissioning in 2019, 40 new employees are being hired for the production and logistics department at the new production site; in the long term, more than 100 people will be employed at the new plant. The importance attached to innovative products by the company is underlined by the construction of a laboratory for the field of application technology as well as by yet another laboratory for research and development already under construction in Schlüsselfeld.
