German manufacturer of heating, industrial and refrigeration systems Viessmann will build a new heat pump plant in Legnica, Poland. The Allendorf-based company wants to invest more than 200 million euros (200.5 million US dollars) in the new facility.
Viessmann announced in the spring its intention to invest a total of 1 billion euros in the expansion of its heat pump and green air conditioning business over the next three years. The new facility will be built on an area of approximately 50,000 square meters and is expected to be completed next year.
Viessmann currently employs around 1,500 people in Poland in its largest division, which is called Climate Solutions. When the new plant is completed, approximately 150 new employees will be added.
The Legnica facility will serve Central and Eastern European markets. The company has been manufacturing system components and other products there for more than 20 years.
In addition to expanding the heat pump business, Viessmann is also continuing to expand electricity storage, solar thermal and district heating capacities. Additional European sites are already being planned and new sites are also to be identified in Germany.
