28 February 2008: Klöcker receives building license

Company plans to invest 2,5 million in Weseke

Weseke (wen). On February 26th, 2008, the city of Borken has issued the license for the construction of industrial halls including a connecting wing at Klöcker Bros. in Weseke. During the first building phase, about 2,5 will be invested into the company’s main site in Germany. This expansion will create up to ten jobs in the fields of mechatronical development, information technology as well as general tool construction. The project entails a warehouse with a surface of about 1.350 m² as well as a production hall covering roughly 1.200 m².

A five-year phase of planning insecurity had preceded this building license. The administration court of Münster rejected the city’s initial development scheme. (the Borkener Zeitung reported).

Therefore, another development plan needed to be sought out. Particularly the transport connection ended up in vigorous discussions until an adequate solution was found.

According to Klöcker’s managing director Dr. Christoph Schwemmlein, a neighbor again has initiated another yet non-substantiated procedure to check whether the legal norms apply. Moreover, a period for filing suit against this building license of one month still needs to be waited for.

However, Klöcker is cautiously positive that the urgently necessary investments for enlargement now eventually may be carried out.
