New building inaugurated for Endress+Hauser Flowtec anniversary
August 2017, News


The market for high-quality flowmeters has been growing for decades, with the name Endress+Hauser Flowtec in Switzerland closely linked for the last 40 years. “Endress+Hauser Flowtec’s success story began in the middle of the 1970s and our new facility, finished to coincide with the company’s anniversary, is a symbol of this growth as well as a commitment to our production and business location in the region,” says managing director Dr Bernd-Josef Schäfer.

Sustained growth requires new facilities

For decades, demand for high-quality flowmeters in the process industry has shown no signs of slowing down. Liquids and gases that are transported through pipelines in massive quantities every day need to be measured and billed with greater accuracy than ever before, primarily due to increasingly stringent regulations and growing demand for quality across the globe. “In addition, there are process requirements that vary greatly depending on the industry,” explains Schäfer. “For this reason, we need to offer our customers a much wider range of flowmeters today than was the case 20 or 30 years ago. This requires further development of our measuring devices, as well as the expansion of our production locations.”

The new facility in Reinach has been built at a cost of 50 million Swiss francs. This recently completed extension offers an additional 25 000 square metres of space for offices and production, which brings the facility to a total of 74 500 square metres. “This enabled us to restructure the individual production lines and make them significantly more effective, allowing for greater efficiency in the use of expensive machinery and equipment,” says Schäfer. “Endress+Hauser Process Solutions, the competence centre for process automation and digital communication, is also housed in the new facility.”

The new facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art building technology, in particular with a comprehensive energy management system and a photovoltaic system with approximately 3 000 square metres of usable space – one of the largest in the Canton of Basel-Landschaft. This means that nearly 500 000 kilowatt hours of electricity can be produced annually under optimal conditions.
