Yanfeng Automotive Interiors Officially Opens new Production Plant in Planá nad Lužnicí




Global leader in automotive interiors will be one of the largest employers in Tabor region

Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, the global leader in automotive interior solutions, celebrates the opening of its new production plant in South Bohemia.  As a new employer in the region, the company is looking to recruit up to 500 new employees over the next few years, making it one of the largest employers in the region.

The opening ribbon-cutting ceremony took place in front of the new production plant including members of Yanfen Automotive Interiors' global management, CTP's business and facility management team, local Czech political and public stakeholders, other automotive industry representatives and guest of honor, the Chinese Ambassador to the Czech Republic, H.E. Mrs MA Keqing.

The new production plant is one of the most modern production plants in Europe, which was built by CTP in less than a year. Yanfeng Automotive Interiors will produce interiors for passenger cars at the plant which spans a total area of more than 23,000 m2 on two floors.

CTP began construction of the  new production plant for the global automotive supplier in CTPark Planá nad Lužnicí last June. The modern  warehouse which will operate with a variety of production technologies required a special construction solution. CTP was the only developer able to meet the demanding requirements of Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, and thus it confirmed its long-standing position of a leader in industrial development in our market.

“From the construction point of view, this is one of the most demanding production plants that we have built so far. Besides installing a unique 3D centre, one of the client's requirements was to build a huge crane runway with a load capacity of up to 50 tons in the middle of the hall, “said Jaroslav Kaizr, Business Development Director of CTP. The hall also includes chemical warehouses and a special logistics tunnel for side loading and unloading which facilitates distribution all over the Europe.

The construction of the industrial hall is also unique in terms of the exterior. “Part of the contract was to create a solution including new planting of green areas and landscaping. On this project, we collaborated with the famous Dutch landscape architect, Lodewijk Baljon. During the realization, approximately 140 grown trees, 9,000 shrubs, and 1,000 additional ornamental plants were planted, and a grassy area of 7,500 m2 was created,” adds Zdeněk Apeltauer, Regional Director of CTP. CTP has also built an automatic irrigation system and contractually arranged ongoing care for greenery. The 7m high fir alley around the hall creates a perfect noise and optical barrier.
