ebm-papst opens new German production facility

ebm-papst is opening its new €15m production facility in Mulfingen-Hollenbach, Germany, after a construction period of just seven months.

In addition to the 10,000 m² expansion to the production area, a new processing centre was completed.

Chairman of the board of directors of the ebm-papst Group, Rainer Hundsdörfer, said: 'This investment will help us meet the constantly growing demand for quiet and energy-efficient fans and motors. The decision to expand a facility in Germany signals our long-term commitment to the location. We hope that this commitment will help secure political support for the infrastructure measures that this region needs.'

The company believes there are two main reasons for increasing demand for its products: customers looking to reduce energy costs and the second step of the European energy conservation regulation for fans (ErP), which is valid from 2015. 

The new expansion was planned and implemented according to the company's GreenTech guideline to ensure energy efficiency and resource preservation. ebm-papst is also planning to construct a central storage facility for around €35m.

ebm-papst's strong GreenTech philosophy is one of the reasons why the it received the German Sustainability Award in November 2013.
