Battery equipment firm CMWTEC reveals expansion plan 1024 734 Batteries International

July 13, 2023: Battery finishing line equipment major CMWTEC Technologie will be expanding its manufacturing capacity at a new greenfield site in Germany as the company invests to meet an increasing order book, Batteries International has learned.

CMWTEC vice-president of sales, Michael Wipperfűrth, confirmed the expansion plan during the firm’s latest customer open house event at its factory in Grossmannswiese in Germany on July 12.

Wipperfűrth said the firm will be moving from its current factory site of up to 1,000m2 to a nearby greenfield site of 6,000m2 where construction is set to start soon. He hopes the move will be made next year.

The new site is adjacent to the Limburg-Süd railway station, offering easy access for the firm’s customers to the country’s high-speed rail network and key destinations including Frankfurt International Airport.

New and existing customers were among those at the firm’s open day yesterday and today to see and secure orders for CMWTEC’s extensive new range of machines.

Latest products include an end-of-line test machine for lead acid batteries and AGM/EFB finishing lines with proprietary data management software to record key data such as battery codes, test results, filling quantity and height control measurements.

The company has also developed a Universal Test Station for lithium battery modules in the e-mobility sector.
