Endress+Hauser breaks new ground
Additional production and office space planned in Nesselwang, Germany
Endress+Hauser is expanding its center of competence for temperature measurement technology in Nesselwang, Germany. The global market for high-end products is constantly growing, making the expansion necessary. “We wish to continue our investment and production in Germany,” underlined Managing Director Harald Hertweck.
The new building is required due to the introduction of new products, the overall optimization of production and the continuously growing workforce. “Expansion of our production and office space will help secure long-term growth,” explained Harald Hertweck. Endress+Hauser Wetzer GmbH+Co. KG is going to invest a total of 10 million euros in the new building with a total floor space of 4,800 square meters.
Plans for the new building also involved the optimization of production processes. Operations were restructured and modernized based on the ‘one-piece flow’ principle, making them significantly more efficient. This makes it possible to increase the efficiency and transparency of production processes. As a result, expensive machinery and equipment can be used far more economically in the future.
The modern industrial architecture of the new building is clearly in evidence: the downward sloping facade has the advantage that it offers protection from the sun while the large glass panes at the front allow sufficient natural light in for those working in production. Power from the photovoltaic system to be installed on the roof of the building can be fully used for production processes. The construction project will mainly be carried out by regional companies.
