Endress+Hauser opens new building at Swiss campus

Endress+Hauser is expanding its facility in Reinach, Switzerland, with a new building that will play host to the company’s Flow and Digital Solutions sectors — which concentrate on flow measuring technology, and digital communication and automation respectively.

The expanded campus has been developed in response to the increasing demands for instrumentation and solutions for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments in the process industry. Liquids and gases must always be monitored, measured and settled with a high degree of accuracy. This is being driven, among other things, by increasingly strict government regulations and growing requirements on quality and environmental protection around the world.

Endress+Hauser Flow has reacted to this development, expanded its portfolio and doubled the number of units produced over the past decade. The consequence is continuous expansion of the production capacity and the creation of additional jobs.

The new building features co-working areas and zones that have been created to differentiate the building’s departments.

“In the spirit of ‘New Work’, we are implementing activity-based working. Different work areas will be available for different activities, meaning that our employees can choose the space best suited to their individual tasks,” said Mirko Lehmann, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Flow.

Training and education facilities are also integrated into the new building, which means that more apprenticeship and vocational career positions will be offered at the location.

Finally, the building has large solar panels on its roof, which also features two bee colonies and a smorgasbord of bee-friendly flowers. 3700 m2 of roofspace is dedicated to solar panelling, which generates roughly 1 MW of power. Additionally, waste heat from the building is stored to be used for water and atmospheric heating, in order to help the building be more efficient with its energy production.
