ebm-papst increases production capacity

The ebm-papst Group is strengthening its subsidiary in St. Georgen. The world market and technology leader is investing around 10 Mio. € in the enlargement of the production units in St. Georgen and in production machinery.


Securing long-time growth of ebm-papst St. Georgen with new working structure.

Dirk Schallock, Managing Director ebm-papst St. Georgen: “We made some very good progress at our location in the Black Forest. Our new working structure and the ongoing orientation towards high tech will provide ebm-papst St. Georgen with an excellent long-term perspective for future developments.”

The groundbreaking ceremony for a new printed circuit board production unit just took place in Hagenmoos close to St. Georgen. As a first step ebm-papst will build a new production unit with a floor space of 3,500m² for around 5 Mio. €. In accordance with the GreenTech philosophy of the ebm-papst Group, the new factory will be constructed with the focus on energy efficiency and resource preservation. Starting in January 2016 60 employees from St. Georgen will work in the new production unit in Hagenmoos while the research and development department will be using the freed up spaces in St. Georgen.

Because of investments of around 30 Mio. € the site in Herbolzheim advanced to a successful growing high tech site for automotive technology. The ebm-papst Group transferred the ventilation technology to the production unit in Vecsés, Hungary, because of the concentration on the automotive technology. The world market leader will invest around 4.5 Mio. € in the building of another production unit with a floor space of around 7,000 m² in Vecsés. This new factory in Hungary will also be construed with the focus on energy efficiency and resource preservation.

As Rainer Hundsdörfer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the ebm-papst Group, emphasises: "This investment is our way of consolidating the positive developments over the past few years. We are confident that this trend will continue in the future as well."
