FOUNDATION STONE CEREMONY FOR NEW MOTOR PLANT
MENZEL ELEKTROMOTOREN HAS launched the construction of its new plant in Hennigsdorf on the outskirts of Berlin with the laying of a foundation stone on 11 June 2022.

More than 200 guests and employees attended the celebrations. The new, purpose-built headquarters will be erected on a 24,000 m² plot. All administrative and production workplaces are to be relocated by January 2024.When complete, the new motor plant with an effective floor space of 8,500 m² will increase the manufacturer's production capacities, allow the expansion of the workforce and earn significant efficiency gains through an optimised floor plan. The production area of about 3,800 m²will accommodate the assembly, metal processing, fabrication and winding workshops, paint shops and three state-of-the-art test fields. In addition, there will be roomy offices, logistics zones and storage areas. The spacious property allows for future expansions and is easy to reach via public transport, motorway or the Berlin Brandenburg International Airport.

The move heralds a new era for the motor company, which was founded in1927. Under the management of Mathis Menzel, the third generation to lead the family business, Menzel has experienced significant growth in recent years. The new building allows for a streamlined and ergonomic layout for all production processes and a higher throughput. Crane capacities will be significantly increased to meet the demand for ever larger motor systems from customers in all industries. New test fields will also be larger to allow for future expansion of the company's testing services.
