ebm-papst Builds New €13 Million Facility in Lauf
ebm-papst Group, the world market leader for fans and motors, is investing 13 million euros in a new building complex at its company location ebm-papst ZEITLAUF in Lauf near Nuremberg. In three construction phases, an administration building and two manufacturing facilities will be completed within the next two years.
Since 2013, the transmission specialist has been part of the ebm-papst technology corporation headquartered in Mulfingen (Baden-WÃ¼rttemberg). The ebm-papst subsidiary in St. Georgen (Black Forest) is responsible for its organizational administration.
In Lauf, ebm-papst develops and manufactures transmission components such as planetary, spur and angle gearheads for industrial drive engineering.
Stefan Brandl, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ebm-papst Group, considers the investment a spatial expansion made necessary by the subsidiaryâ€™s constant growth. And on the other hand, he explains: â€œThe Lauf location is of key strategic importance in the further development of our system expertise.â€ In addition, the construction project is a clear commitment to the long-term safeguarding of the location and its employees.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the almost 10,000 mÂ² building is planned for early fall. As typical for ebm-papst, the new building will have a modern, environmentally friendly design.
