Full automation technology in new Smart Factory -  Seifert Systems Malta invests in the future

Investment in Industry 4.0

At SEIFERT, we are constantly on the lookout for innovative technologies. In many cases this has helped us to find pioneering solutions that enable us to offer customer-specific products. In this way, we have been able to expand our customer base and place our business model on broader foundations.

In recent years, we have started a digital transformation by investing in the latest technology to streamline our processes and thus become more sustainable. We strongly believe that promoting sustainability will ensure our long-term survival.

In an official event last Monday, together with the Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Robert Abela, Dr. Miriam Dalli, Minister of Energy, Enterprise and Sustainable Development, Hon. Silvio Schembri, Minister of Economy and Industry as well as His Excellency, the German Ambassador in Malta, Walter Hassmann, Michael Seifert showed in his speechto the press conference the news in the implementation and expansion of the site. A new Smart Factory shall be built and will be one of the first climate neutral designed production facilities in Malta. There are very few such state-of-the-art, digitalised facilities in the world.

Digitalisation as an ingredient for more growth

Seifert Malta has started the construction of its new production and warehouse hall with a total of 2900 m². In addition to the expansion of metal processing, a raw material warehouse with a capacity of up to 1700 tons and a fully automated powder coating line will be built. Connected to the new hall is a block for the new logistics area.

The new building for the plant expansion will see an investment of around EUR 8 million and will be equipped with the latest technology, with a focus on eliminating wasteful processes and making the company leaner and more efficient. The first phase of the investment in a smart factory based on Industry 4.0 principles is expected to be completed and operational by September 2022. After that, another 4 million euros will be invested in the second phase of the project, which is in line with the current master plan.

A partnership with a large multinational supplier of electrical and electronic components will be entered into shortly, enabling SEIFERT to manufacture some components on internal facilities in Malta. This is in line with plans for vertical integration with key suppliers and stakeholders whenever feasible and possible. This also helps to broaden the product range and create further growth opportunities.

"We are very proud that our company has been selected for this new venture. The decisive factors for the choice were not only our flexibility and expertise, but also Malta's strategic location and the support services offered," says Michael Seifert.
