Time is a deciding factor in the construction industry. Reason enough for SCHRAG CEO Thomas Goswin to start a strategic process for positioning the entire SCHRAG Group across all business units in 2017. The main focus was on edging profiles for the construction sector. Goswin knew that shorter delivery times were only achievable with automated processes and planned to construct a new production site where in future purlins and rafters for the substructure in hall construction will be centrally and efficiently manufactured. However, Thomas Goswin did not want to just rely on his own expertise in the practical implementation of this large-scale project. The Smart Factory Consultants from TRUMPF were called in to plan the cutting-edge production for lightweight metal components.
