Endress+Hauser expands temperature and system products manufacturing

Oct 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 new production and office space, in addition to technology and common rooms.

The expansion was driven by the growing demand for temperature technology and system products, as well as the introduction of new product lines. "We are constantly investing in our centers of competence in order to develop persuasive solutions for our customers and to increase production efficiency,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, during the dedication ceremony, which was held on Friday 26 October 2018, in the presence of representatives from politics and business as well as employees.

"We will continue to expand and round out our temperature and system product portfolio so that we can be in a position to optimally serve our customers in the future as well," said Harald Hertweck, managing director of the Endress+Hauser center of competence for temperature measurement technology. "To do that, we need additional space for research and development, production, logistics and quality assurance, which this new building provides."

The new building features a sloping facade that offers protection against the sun, plus glass fronts that let in light. The new building also boasts a sustainable energy concept, including a photovoltaic system installed on the roof that provides enough electricity to completely power the basic production load.

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. 

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 Italy, the U.S., China, India and South Africa. The company received several awards this year for the iTHERM TrustSens, the world’s first self-calibrating thermometer.
