On the growth track: US investor Carlisle expands operations in Thuringia

Plastics specialist Carlisle is growing and investing around EUR 50 million in a new production facility in Waltershausen, Thuringia. The expansion is proof positive that Thuringia’s excellent site conditions and all-round service make a compelling case even in times of crisis.

The company, a specialist in modern roof waterproofing, laid the cornerstone for the additional facility at the Gothaer Straße industrial estate in Waltershausen, Germany in July. “We have made Thuringia a key part of our growth strategy: It is an important production site with a promising future. This is where we have put down roots and where we want to continue to grow,” said Christian Steyrer, VP Operations CARLISLE CM Europe. The new facility is planned to start production in 2022. It will add 25 new jobs and increase the Thuringian site’s total internal area to 17,000 square meters. The company will also buy new equipment for producing its special waterproofing membranes. These products are a runaway success since they can be laid on almost all substrates and welded with a heat gun – no open flame required. The group parent is Carlisle Construction Materials, which is based in the United States and has gross annual sales of almost four billion US dollars. LEG has been guiding and supporting Carlisle’s business trajectory in Waltershausen for eight years as part of its full service offering for investors interested in relocating and expanding. Carlisle Construction Materials GmbH has invested more in western Thuringia than in any other site in Europe.
