Endress+Hauser announces new German production facility

October 29, 2018 - Endress+Hauser has invested more than 10.4 million euros in a new production facility at its location in Nesselwang, Germany. The 4,800-square-meter building contains production and office space, in addition to technology and common rooms. With the expansion, the Endress+Hauser Group is making further investments in sustainable growth.

The expansion was driven by the growing demand for innovative temperature technology and system products, as well as the introduction of new product lines.

The building has an intelligent architecture featuring a sloping facade that offers protection against the sun, plus glass fronts that let in light. The building also focuses on a sustainable energy concept, including a photovoltaic system installed on the roof that provides enough electricity to completely power the basic production load. E-bike charging stations further underscore the emphasis on sustainability.

While the building was being constructed, the production and and logistics processes were also optimized and structured in accordance with Lean Principles and the One Piece Flow approach. This structure enables the center of competence to increase the individual responsibility of the employees, add more flexibility to the production process and utilize the capacity of the machines and operational resources.

Endress+Hauser Wetzer, the Group’s center of competence for temperature measurement technology and system products, which is headquartered in Nesselwang, Germany, operates five additional production facilities in Pessano (Italy), Greenwood, Indiana (US), Suzhou (China), Aurangabad (India) and Benoni (South Africa). The company received several awards this year for the iTHERM TrustSens, the world’s first self-calibrating thermometer. In addition to awards in France (Mesures, CFIA) and the Czech Republic (Zlatý Amper), Endress+Hauser was also the recipient of the HERMES AWARD, a renowned industry prize, in addition to the AMA Innovation Award at the SENSOR+TEST trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
