MORELO expands production facility to meet growing demand

MORELO, the premium motorhome brand from the Knaus Tabbert group, is expanding its production facility in Schlüsselfeld by building a new workshop so it can increase production to meet the growing demand for its vehicles. At the same time, the number of employees at MORELO will also increase sharply, from the current 450 to around 550 employees.

At the groundbreaking ceremony, Reinhard Löhner, Managing Director of MORELO, spoke not only of a “real further milestone for MORELO, but also of a strong impulse for the entire region”. While it was “normal” until a few years ago as an employee to make the daily journey from Schlüsselfeld to Bamberg, Würzburg or even Erlangen and Nuremberg, “hidden champions” such as MORELO now also say that going the other way “is a real option for more and more people”. 

“With the factory expansion, we are taking the next big step into the future,” says Robert Crispens, Managing Director of MORELO Reisemobile GmbH. “The new Plant 2 as well as the significant expansion of Plant 1 and the exhibition area for our vehicles – all this is the basis for being able to continue to grow under our own steam and at the same time to implement the first class wishes of our customers even better, more individually and faster can.” 

MORELO has positioned itself as a top provider in the luxury motorhome market segment over the past 12 years and is now leading the premium segment. Due to the continuous growth, however, the Upper Franconians have now almost reached their capacity limits. Therefore, a new stage in the company’s history is confidently heralded and an additional factory building is built, which will contain a fully-fledged, state-of-the-art production line. 

The new Plant 2 in the north of the MORELO company premises, which is within sight of the A3, will include a state-of-the-art production line, a second panel production, design and development including prototype construction, a warehouse, a canteen and a second employee car park for approx. 100 cars . 

The new construction of Plant 2 and the already completed production expansion of Plant 1 will significantly increase MORELO’s production capacity in the medium term.
