Due to continuing growth, Rational, a manufacturer of equipment for hot food preparation in large-scale and commercial kitchens, announced it will build its third and largest factory in Landsberg, Germany. The new factory will be operational as early as mid-2008.

The company’s decision to expand is due, in large part, to record growth in its U.S. subsidiary. Rational USA, which has experienced as high as 40 per cent sales growth year over year during the last six years, plans to sell close to 2,600 units this year and predicts it will reach $100 million in sales as early as 2009.

Requiring an investment of more than $27 million, construction of the third factory represents the largest investment in the company’s 35-year history. The new factory is being constructed on a 172,000-square-foot site and will create approximately 100 new jobs with the capability to produce 60,000 units per year.
