ebm-papst opens new production expansion at headquarters

After a construction period of just seven months, ebm-papst is opening its new production facility in Mulfingen-Hollenbach. The world market leader for fans and motors invested around 15 million euros in the project, intensifying its production of large energy-saving fans for the European market. In addition to the 10,000 m² expansion to the production area, a new processing centre was also completed.


Rainer Hundsdörfer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the ebm-papst Group, explains: "This investment will help us meet the constantly growing demand for quiet and energy-efficient fans and motors. The decision to expand a facility in Germany signals our long-term commitment to the location. We hope that this commitment will help secure political support for the infrastructure measures that this region needs."

The technology leader sees two main reasons for the rising demand: customers' increasing desire to lower energy costs, and the second step of the European energy conservation regulation for fans (ErP), valid from 2015.

The new expansion was planned and implemented according to the company's GreenTech guideline to ensure energy efficiency and resource preservation. ebm-papst's strong GreenTech philosophy is one of the reasons why the fan specialist was given the German Sustainability Award in November 2013.

ebm-papst is also planning to construct a central storage facility for around 35 million euros.
