BMZ Group builds largest battery production for electric vehicles in Lower Franconia

New building in Karlstein am Main

(PresseBox) (Karlstein, ) On November 7, 2018, the first symbolic groundbreaking ceremony for a further production building and a logistics center of the BMZ Group took place in Karlstein, Lower Franconia. In about one year, the new capacities will be used for the production of high-tech battery systems in electric vehicles.

Europe's largest battery production

This is the start of construction work for Europe's largest battery production. The two building complexes complete the two existing production halls and are the second of three construction phases in the industrial estate Zeche Gustav. "With the two new buildings, we are expanding our production of battery systems and thus continuing our growth, especially in the area of electromobility," explains Sven Bauer, CEO & Founder of the BMZ Group. "We have expanded the concept with the logistics hall in order to be able to supply our customers with batteries in a timely and comprehensive manner throughout Europe." As early as 2019, these investments will create 300 new jobs in Karlstein.

The general contractor LIST Bau Rhein-Main, which has already realized the existing two production buildings in 2016, has been commissioned with the turnkey construction of the two new building complexes. "We are pleased that BMZ has also entrusted us with the second section for Europe's largest battery production," enthuses Marco Schütz, Managing Director of LIST Construction Rhein-Main.

Expandable building concept

The overall concept plans to create connecting corridors with around seven meters of height between the existing and the new buildings. Bauer explains the project: "The transition zones should provide space for conveyor vehicles and conveyor belts. Our goal is to create an across-the-board, smooth and efficient transport of products without environmental impact." The production building will be completed in September and the logistics building by October next year.
