At Karlstein, an additional production hall with 3.000 m² production area and 80 office workstations will be built for further growth. Commissioning is planed for September 2019. At the same time, a 20m high logistic center with 12.000 pallet spaces will be built by October 2019, in order to be able to supply every customer in Europe with the appropriate batteries in time.
Increase in jobs
At the same time, the plants in Poland and China will be expanded. In total, BMZ is investing EUR 120 million in this industry of the future in order to secure long-term employment in Germany. "Already in 2019, the new building alone will create further 300 jobs at Karlstein", says Sven Bauer. As part of the expansion, BMZ is constantly looking for developers for hardware and software as well as employees for the construction of production lines such as: fitter (m/f), electrician (m/f) and programmable logic controller (m/f).
Lithium Ion Batteries – Made in Germany
Among other things, BMZ builds batteries for cranes, excavators and buses at Karlstein, as well as lawn robots and electric bicycles. The field of solar home storage systems, which store the surplus electricity of the photovoltaic system and make the detached house independent of the public power grid, is highly innovative and strongly growing.
Such storage systems ensure that the private person no longer has to buy electricity, but can live independently. This allows monthly savings, e.g. from about 150 euros. Leasing models for less than 100 euros a month are now available for such storage systems and solar systems, making this systems profitable.
The BMZ Group is a global player in lithium-ion system solution production. The Group is headquartered in Germany, and maintains production locations in China, Poland and the USA, as well as branches in Japan and France. In addition, it has research & development locations worldwide. Around 3.000 employees work for the BMZ Group across the globe.
