Endress+Hauser has invested more than 10.4 million € in a new, state-of-the-art production facility at its location in Nesselwang, Germany. The 4800 m² building contains new 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. “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.

In many processes, temperature is a measurement parameter with a major influence on product quality. “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. To do that, we need additional space for research and development, production, logistics and quality assurance, which this new building provides,” said Harald Hertweck, Managing Director of the Endress+Hauser center of competence for temperature measurement technology.

Sustainable expansion
The new building is an eye-catcher with an impressive, intelligent architecture featuring a sloping facade that offers protection against the sun, plus glass fronts that let in an abundance of 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. 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 optimally utilize the capacity of the machines and operational resources.

 
Center of competence for temperature measurement technology and system products
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.
