Investing into the future in times of crisis
With a symbolic ground-breaking ceremony at LUF GmbH in Thüringen, Austria, on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, the construction work for a further production hall with 2,000 square meters of floor space began. State Councillor Marco Tittler and Mayor Harald Witwer were delighted with the enthusiasm of the "SME Entrepreneur of the Year 2019", who could not be stopped even by Corona.
The new facility will mainly be used to produce the offroad wheelchair LUF Mobil, which has been developed to series production readiness over the past seven years. The vehicle, equipped with four electric motors, a patented chassis and sophisticated electronics, aims to raise the mobility of people with walking disabilities to a new level. The "moving computer" is suitable for daily use as well as for tours in heavy terrain and on mountain paths. The street-driving approval procedure has now been initiated. After successful completion, production is to be launched.
