Inauguration party at Braas plant in Petershagen-Heisterholz

The Braas roof tile factory in Petershagen-Heisterholz inaugurated their new production facility for roof tile accessories on November 21, 2013. The new facility is one of the Monier Group’s most modern, efficient accessory production sites.

New machinery for production, handling and packaging

Broadening of the accessory production scope was effected gradually and caused no delays. The project was launched in October 2011. All through the construction phase, the existing plant remained in operation, so there was no break in the production of accessory items.

“For 150 years now, the Petershagen-Heisterholz facility has been known for roof-tile competence”, muses plant manager Michael Lackner. “This new production line therefore unites tradition and modernity.” By adopting innovative plant technology and providing the staff with comprehensive training, Braas achieved a distinct optimization of the plant’s capacity utilization rate. One example: It doubled Braas’ production capacity for roof tile accessories in Petershagen-Heisterholz. Right now, it is turning out accessories for all roof tile models produced not only at the Petershagen-Heisterholz facility, but also for those made in Hainstadt. Typical examples include verge tiles for neat roof edges, ridge tiles and vent tiles – totalling more than 70 products in over 20 colours.

As a leading supplier of complete roof systems, Braas operates, among other facilities, four roof tile factories in Germany. Petershagen turns out accessory products and a selection of roof tile models for Braas’ sales regions in Petershagen, Rahmstorf and Monheim. The facility has a present staff of 80, including four apprentices.
