Sennebogen, a German material handling equipment manufacturer, officially opened its new North American facility last week during a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Lincoln Economic Development Association.

Sennebogen’s newly built 48,000 square foot facility is on Old Plank Road, near Julius Blum, just off Highway 16 in the Loewsville community.

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to accommodate Sennebogen’s parts distribution, training and technical support center. Future plans include the manufacturing of certain parts for the green machine line; it will also host a simulator in order to train operators in-house. The Lincoln County facility will ensure Sennebogen’s exceptional customer service and support with efficient access to parts, equipment, and technical support.

Sennebogen has 26 employees; 20 of them reside in the surrounding area and the remaining six travel outside the area servicing the machines that are in operation.

“We are excited to be in our new facility and appreciate all the support we have received from the Lincoln Economic Development Association; they have been only a phone call away for any of our questions and/or concerns,” said president Constantino Lannes.

“The Board of Commissioners are pleased to see a company such as Sennebogen here in Lincoln County,” said commissioner Jim Klein “We have been and will continue to be supportive of industry growth and look forward to the anticipated future growth and success of Sennebogen.”

“In challenging economic times such as these, it’s exciting to be a part of and celebrate the growth of industry. Welcome and congratulations to Sennebogenn.” said LEDA chairman Peter Acker.

Lincoln Economic Development Association is a private, 501c(3) non-profit corporation charged with facilitating industrial, office and commercial development in Lincolnton and

Lincoln County.
