Hatec Group has proven close co-operation with our customers. Hatec Flex supplied two expansion joints with quality control and documentation 27 hours after being informed of the problem. The customer, an oil refinery in Rheinland, sustained a failure of two 30 years old DN 300 expansion joints made from special material. The failure of these expansion joints meant that the whole plant was put on a down time, so getting the expansion joints replaced was of critical importance. Below is a quote from the letter (translated from German) from the customer after successful installation:
“… This you have worked out very well…!
On behalf of my colleagues, I would like thank you very much for the role model and target-oriented cooperation, which I would never have taken for granted. Also I would like to make a big compliment to the colleagues, which have made it possible to implement our project in a very short time, and you can be very proud of such employees. I hope that future cooperation will not only comprise such quick-fix actions, although it has been great fun to work with such a reliable partner. In this sense I wish you and your team a quiet and relaxing weekend. ”
The new Hatec expansion joint production has been completed and successfully commissioned. The old production hall has been renovated into a modern expansion joints production facility and office.
In the production area we find the new press as well as other new production machinery. We are proud of this investment and to be able to increase the production capacity, improve the flexibility as well as expand our product range. This renewal helps the Hatec Group to expand and to further improve our offer to the market.
Also, some added and much needed office space also benefits us and helps us to grow. The quality department and the Hatec Flex team in Mülheim have already moved into the office space.
The Hatec expansion joint team is working hard together with the new powerful Hatec press to finish the current projects. The first large project consists of compensators for a nuclear power plant and these parts are currently being produced.
Below you find pictures from before and during the construction as well as the finished building. During the planning of the renovation, efforts were made to keep elements of the old building while modernizing it.
