Germany: Menzel Elektromotoren has signed a construction contract to build a larger motor plant at Hennigsdorf near Berlin. The manufacturer says it has experienced substantial growth in recent years and has outgrown its present headquarters in central Berlin. The new site will have an area of around 8500m² and will accommodate a motor plant with production, testing and storage areas as well as offices. The plot will also allow for flexible expansions to meet future growth requirements. Construction is to start in the summer of 2022, with completion scheduled for August 2023.
“Our new location will feature state-of-the-art machinery, efficient logistics, larger hoist capacities for optimised production processes and high energy efficiency,” said chief executive officer Mathis Menzel. “We will also expand our team and create around 100 new jobs in production and administration in the medium term.”
The Germany-based motor manufacturer supplies electric motors to end-users. It is also a supplier and partner of drive manufacturers, distributors and maintenance companies.
