April 2023 - Schmitz Cargobull has confirmed that it will continue the production of motor vehicle bodies at its Gotha and Panevėžys plants, following the closure of GRW’s factory in Toddin, Germany on April 3. At the site, silo and tanker manufacturer GRW had produced the Schmitz Cargobull motor vehicle superstructures in contract manufacturing.
“This is sad news for GRW but due to the Schmitz Cargobull flexible production network we are able to rapidly respond to the closure of their plant without any impact on our business,” says Andreas Schmitz, CEO of Schmitz Cargobull AG. “We are moving the production of motor vehicle box bodies to our plants in Gotha, Germany and Panevėžys, Lithuania. Our customers will continue to receive their vehicles in proven Schmitz Cargobull quality."
