Training for technicians at STELA

Training for technicians at STELA

At the beginning of February, the Czech and Polish service teams of Pawlica s.r.o. attended a two-day training course at the STELA manufacturer’s production plant in the German town of Massing. The visit included a tour of the company’s new headquarters and its production hall, which was opened two years ago.

The training programme also included a tour of STELA’s new headquarters, which also has its own production hall. The plant was put into operation in spring 2016 due to the firm’s rapid expansion in recent years. Construction work started on the new headquarters in autumn 2014 and lasted for sixteen months. It has 15,000 m2 of production space and 3,000 m2 of office space, while over 50,000 cubic meters of concrete were used for the foundations alone. The original production hall, which is situated in the centre of Massing, is still operational, although only partially. The entire mechanical part of production is now located in the new plant, where STELA develops most of its components itself.

STELA’s expansion is not just about the number of its employees, but also about reaching out to new markets. The company now employs 140 people, and, in addition to Europe, also markets its products in Asia and America.

STELA is a German family firm, the world’s leading dryer manufacturer. Specialising entirely in agricultural and industrial drying machinery allows the company to concentrate its resources on technical development and streamlining production efficiency. Its range of industrial dryers includes belt driers for sawdust, chips, sewage sludge, digestate and vegetables, as well as trough driers for less bulk materials, such as pumpkin seeds and crop seeds. Its range of agricultural dryers primarily includes stationary tower and mobile dryers for all types of grain. STELA is the only manufacturer to differentiate between corn and grain stationary dryers, as it strives to continually cut the costs of drying dominant crops.
