In order to meet the growing demand for flow instrumentation, Endress+Hauser has expanded its production capabilities in Cernay, France.

Endress+Hauser manufactures flowmeters in Cernay for delivery to customers around the world. “Cernay is one of the Group’s fastest growing locations and has already been expanded nine times since it went into operation in 1991,” said Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group at the dedication ceremony of the new production and office building, which took place June 10 in the presence of customers, partners and guests from government and industry.

The additional 10,000 square meters of space will be primarily used for the manufacture of electromagnetic flowmeters. Among the location’s core expertise is the lining of the measuring tubes of these instruments, an important manufacturing step for the quality of the instruments. The extension building also features space for offices, meeting rooms, a company restaurant and a customer area for factory acceptance tests. The location currently has 430 employees. Construction began in January 2019 and was completed in April 2020.

“In Cernay, as at all our sites worldwide, we produce with the highest quality standards. For this reason, it’s important for us to offer our employees a work environment that meets their needs,” said Thierry Weissgerber, managing director of Endress+Hauser Flow in Cernay.

The production building features large bay windows provide natural light, and break and relaxation areas feature sofas and kitchenettes.

As well as electromagnetic flowmeters, Cernay manufactures ultrasound and vortex meters. The new building was designed chiefly for the manufacture of the Progmag H and Dosimag H products, which are used primarily in the food and life sciences industries. A double-skin facade dampens the noise from the production systems. Circulation aisles enable delivery of the material close to the production lines and save space.

The company made invested in and carried out a wide range of projects to reduce energy consumption at the location, including an energy-recovery system that stores the heat from the compressors in the winter in the boiler rooms to prevent it from being wasted. The building’s construction complies with the latest RT 2020 standard and thus meets high specifications for thermal insulation. Certification in accordance with ISO 50001 is also in progress.
