Since 2013, the transmission specialist has been part of the ebm-papst technology corporation headquartered in Mulfingen (Baden-Württemberg). The ebm-papst subsidiary in St. Georgen (Black Forest) is responsible for its organizational administration. In Lauf, ebm-papst develops and manufactures transmission components such as planetary, spur and angle gearheads for industrial drive engineering. Stefan Brandl, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ebm-papst Group, considers the investment a spatial expansion made necessary by the subsidiary’s constant growth. And on the other hand, he explains: “The Lauf location is of key strategic importance in the further development of our system expertise.” In addition, the construction project is a clear commitment to the long-term safeguarding of the location and its employees. The groundbreaking ceremony for the almost 10,000 m² building is planned for early fall. As typical for ebm-papst, the new building will have a modern, environmentally friendly design.
