New Motor Plant for Menzel Elektromotoren
MENZEL ELEKTROMOTOREN has signed the construction contract for a new, larger motor plant in Hennigsdorf, near Berlin.

The manufacturer has experienced substantial growth in recent years and has outgrown its present headquarters in central Berlin. “Our new location will feature state-of-the-art machinery, efficient logistics, larger hoist capacities for optimised production processes and high energy efficiency,” said CEO, Mathis Menzel, on the occasion of the signing of the contract. “We will also expand our team and create around 100 new jobs in production and administration in the medium term.”

The new site offers optimal conditions for the planned growth with a gross floor area of around 8500m², which will accommodate a motor plant with production, testing and storage areas, and offices. The extensive plot allows for flexible expansion to meet future growth requirements. Construction starts in the summer of 2022, with final acceptance scheduled for August 2023.

The Vollack Group, an expert in methodical building conception, will oversee planning and construction. Thanks to resource-saving building technology with heat generation from the local heat network, the building will meet the EG40EE energy efficiency standard and thus qualify for state funding. “In planning and implementing this project, we emphasise lean processes and resource conservation at all levels,” said Matthias Jordt, partner at Vollack.

With this investment and the move to the new location, Menzel Elektromotoren is positioning itself sustainably for the future.
