The site expansion, known as the “Future Factory Asslar”, will significantly expand Pfeiffer Vacuum’s manufacturing and logistics capacities. The development includes an 8,000 sq m logistics center with an integrated, fully-automated warehouse. A further 1,000 square meters will be used to create an additional production area as well as a service environment, in which all service areas will work together centrally. In addition, part of an existing building will also be modernized.

The new logistics center should be completed in 2024.

Pfeiffer Vacuum is incorporating photovoltaic systems throughout the project, with a plan to feed the electricity generated into the company’s own power network. Heat generated by the production facilities will also be recovered. Charging stations for employees’ electric vehicles are also planned. The site is aiming to achieve climate neutrality by 2030.
