Endress+Hauser expands production in Cernay
430 employees at the site
In Cernay, Endress+Hauser manufactures flowmeters and supplies them to customers all over the world. “Cernay is one of the group's fastest growing locations. It has been expanded nine times since it was founded in 1991,” says Matthias Altendorf, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, at the opening ceremony of the new production and office building on Friday, June 10, 2022, in the presence of customers, partners and guests from politics and economy.
The 10,000 square meters of additional space are mostly used for the production of electromagnetic flowmeters. The core competences of the site include the lining of the measuring tubes of these versatile instruments - a work step that is important for the quality of the devices. In addition, the extension offers space for offices, meeting rooms, a company restaurant and a customer area for factory acceptance tests (FAT). 430 employees currently work at the site.
Production under high demands
Construction work started in January 2019; in April 2020 the new rooms were occupied. In addition to magnetic-inductive flowmeters, ultrasonic and vortex meter instruments are also manufactured in Cernay. The new building is primarily intended for the manufacture of the Promag H and Dosimag H products, which are primarily used in the food and life sciences industries. Double-shell walls dampen the noise of the production facilities. Circulation aisles allow the material to be delivered close to the production facilities and save space.
Numerous investments and projects have been implemented to reduce energy consumption at the site. For example, an energy recovery system was installed. It feeds the heat from the compressors into the heating rooms in winter so that it is not lost. The construction was carried out according to the latest RT 2020 standard and thus meets high standards for thermal insulation. ISO 50001 certification is also in the works.
