Endress+Hauser expands production facility in Germany
Endress+Hauser has announced that it has increased its production of pressure and level measurement technology with the €46 million expansion of its facility in Maulburg, Germany. The project, which took nearly two years to complete, includes a new production and office building with more than 1500 m2 of space. The expansion was in response to strong growth in the demand for the company’s area of level and pressure measurement technology.
With roughly 2000 employees, Maulburg is one of the Endress+Hauser Group’s largest locations.
“The new buildings will allow us to cope with the growth stemming from previous years,” said Dr Peter Selders, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure in Maulburg at the dedication of the new facilities. “A generous amount of space and a modern infrastructure will help meet the demand for quality and efficiency. “
Of the 1500 m2 of space, 980 m2 is dedicated to production. The design placed considerable value on energy efficiency and features a photovoltaic system on the roof and a cogeneration unit that supplies electricity and heat. Endress+Hauser measurement technology monitors the flow of energy.
Still under construction in the basement of the new building are two measurement sections that will be used for the precise calibration of level measurement instruments with radar technology employed in large tanks and silos. At 55 m each, these measurement sections are said to be the longest of their kind in the world. Customers have a keen interest in calibration given that the smallest measurement deviations can lead to a high degree of uncertainty when monitoring inventories.
The new buildings were officially dedicated in a small gathering on 8 October 2021 in the presence of guests from government and industry, business partners and employees. Although the spaces were occupied in early 2020 after construction was completed, the dedication ceremony was delayed until now due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Over the past year we shifted a lot of things to the virtual environment, but we wanted to celebrate the opening together with people here in our new building, albeit in a small group due to the COVID-19 restrictions,” said Selders.
