Endress+Hauser has invested roughly 46 million euros in the expansion of its Maulburg, Germany location. The project, which took nearly two years to complete, includes a new production and office building with more than 17,000 m2 of space, plus a parking garage. The expansion was in response to strong growth in the area of level and pressure measurement technology.
With roughly 2,000 employees, Maulburg is one of the Endress+Hauser Group’s largest locations. “The new buildings will allow us to cope with the growth stemming from previous years,” said Dr Peter Selders, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure in Maulburg at the dedication of the new facilities. A generous amount of space and a modern infrastructure will help meet the demand for quality and efficiency.
The new multistory building was completed in 2020 and contains 17,000 m2 of space, 11,000 of which is dedicated to production. Still under construction in the basement of the new building are two measurement sections that will be used for the precise calibration of level measurement instruments with radar technology employed in large tanks and silos. At 55 m each, these measurement sections are the longest of their kind in the world. Customers have a keen interest in calibration given that the smallest measurement deviations can lead to a high degree of uncertainty when monitoring inventories.
The new buildings were officially dedicated in a small gathering in October 2021 in the presence of guests from government and industry, business partners and employees. Although the spaces were occupied in early 2020 after construction was completed, the dedication ceremony was delayed until now due to the coronavirus pandemic.
