MORELO starts expansion of showroom and production facility

The luxury motorhome manufacturer, MORELO, the premium brand owned by Knaus Tabbert, is investing in the future with a comprehensive expansion of its premises to increase its own capacities and to be able to meet the constantly rising demand for MORELO first-class motorhomes.

In the last 10 years MORELO has evolved into a successful brand in the category of luxury motorhomes. “This is exactly why healthy growth needs to be further guaranteed. We want to embark into a promising future together with our 380 employees.“, says Robert Crispens, managing director of MORELO Reisemobile GmbH.

In a timeframe of only eight months, a new area of 4,350 m2 is planned in two construction phases. “We precisely know what we need and how to implement it.“, says Reinhard Löhner, manging director of MORELO Reisemobile GmbH. “If somebody is able to do a project in this dimension in that amount of time, it is MORELO. As is known projects in extraordinary size are our specialty.“

In order to present customers and visitors an even higher exhibited offer of first-class motorhomes, the already generous dimensions of the showroom will be expanded by another 675 m2. Further consultation spaces, a new customer lounge and office rooms for the sales and order management department will be placed in the new partly two-storey addition on the eastern side of the existing main building.

The first turn of the shovel is already set to take place in May 2021. The completion of the construction work is intended for December 2021.

On the west side of the plant, the existing production line will be expanded by 64 meters to create five new working stations. As a result there will be 23 working stations on a total of 285 meters of production line available which are absolutely mandatory given the increasing production. Moreover, new space will be made available for both the panel and part production as well as the machine park among other things. The expansion in construction phase two will be erected on a surface of 3,520 m2 to seamlessly be added to the existing plant.

Only two months after the start of construction phase one, the start of construction phase 2 is planned for July 2021. The production expansion is set to be finished parallel to construction phase 1 in December 2021.
