Menzel holds inauguration ceremony on 120th anniversary of its founder’s birth

Menzel Elektromotoren opened its new headquarters near Berlin with a grand inauguration party. In honor of company founder Kurt Menzel, the date was set for his 120th birthday on May 14. The German manufacturer markets its industrial motors and tailor-made drive systems worldwide.

Plans for the state-of-the-art facility were announced in August 2023. The new plant was ready for occupation to begin in November 2023.

The manufacturer required more space and modern production facilities designed for efficient processes and larger, heavier machines. In addition to machinery, paint shops and test fields that can accommodate even the largest motor configurations, the new plant is prepared for further growth. In coming years, the workforce at this site can be expanded from around 100 to 150.

Menzel manufactures its own motor series and also specializes in custom models and exact replicas of existing machines. Menzel builds new motors with outputs up to and beyond 25 MW from scratch, stocks a large range of motor variants up to 15 MW and adapts them at short notice for various drive tasks. The company also offers testing of motors, generators and rotary converter sets. Since the official factory commissioning on January 2, the quality management system has already been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.

Menzel Elektromotoren has been manufacturing and distributing electric motors since 1927. The German family-run company based in Hennigsdorf near Berlin specializes in the delivery of large electric motors. The product range comprises high- and low-voltage motors, dc motors, transformers and frequency inverters. Menzel operates subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain and Sweden, and cooperates with numerous partners worldwide.
