Endress+Hauser expands Swiss flowmeter facility

After beginning work on the foundations in 2019, Endress+Hauser has celebrated the opening of the nearly 150-metre-long building in Reinach, Switzerland. The new facility, with more than 25,000 m2 of space, is home to Endress+Hauser Flow, the product centre for flow measuring technology, as well as Endress+Hauser Digital Solutions, which is responsible within the Group for all issues related to digital communication and automation solutions.

With the new building, Endress+Hauser is responding to the ongoing demand for instrumentation and solutions for IIoT environments in the process industry. Liquids and gases must always be monitored, measured and settled with a high degree of accuracy. This is being driven, among other things, by increasingly strict government regulations and growing requirements on quality and environmental protection around the world.

Endress+Hauser Flow has reacted to this development, expanded its portfolio and doubled the number of units produced over the past decade. The consequence is continuous expansion of the production capacity and the creation of additional jobs.

For Endress+Hauser, laying the groundwork for the future also means investing in the employees of tomorrow. The new building brings training and education into the heart of operation and offers sufficient space for areas conducive to learning with workshops, labs and training rooms, thus allowing an increase in the number of apprenticeship positions and vocational careers. To date, 43 apprentices have been trained in eight areas. Beginning in August, nearly 50 apprentices will be trained in 11 vocations. This number is expected to grow over the next five years.

Endress+Hauser is furthermore using the new building to align its ongoing business growth even more closely with its ecological and social responsibilities. In light of the goal of the Endress+Hauser Flow sustainability strategy to operate its buildings in Reinach in a CO2-neutral manner by the year 2030, high value is being placed on climate-friendly facilities management. As part of the energy concept, for example, waste heat is stored in a stratified storage tank for warm water and then used for heating. An energy monitoring system using instruments from the company’s range also helps to continuously optimise operation of the buildings. Large photovoltaic systems were also installed on the roof of the new building with a peak capacity of 365 kW.
