ROLLOUT WITH GUESTS OF HONOUR
04/18 The entire board of directors and supervisory board of ZIEHL-ABEGG watch production of the first high-tech plastic impellers made of a single cast in the new production centre
We made space
ZIEHL-ABEGG made space for the production of pioneering fans: In the new production plant, a facility on the latest state of the art of the plastic production industry, e.g. bionic impellers of ZAmid® are produced, ECblue motors made and both are joined into energy-saving high-end fans. Finally, everything is combined under a single – though enormous – roof!

Priceless and not for sale: The very first impellers coming off the line are impeccable, perfect and without a single error already. Nevertheless, they are not for sale. They are and will remain unique…
Peter Fenkl, chairman of the board of ZIEHL-ABEGG SE, and his fellow directors Achim Curd Rägle, Norbert Schuster and Dr. Klaus Weiß, as well as the entire supervisory board of the company have come together in the new hall in order to supervise the official start of production. They personally sign the first impellers that leave the production line to express their deep commitment to the pioneering project. It is an exhilarating moment and everyone involved in it is aware of its importance. This investment in the future is fully supported by the board and the supervisory council!
With an investment volume approaching 30 million Euro, ZIEHL-ABEGG as the global market leader has created a production plant on the latest state of the art on the Hohenlohe premises. Since demand for the energy-saving blue technology has increased around the world and is going to continue to increase, production had to be expanded and restructured at the same time.
The new plant – a milestone worth millions
Within a single year, a production building unique in the industry has been built in the industrial park Hohenlohe in Kupferzell: This is where the globally renowned ECblue motors are produced. At the same time, truly unique, delicate and yet indestructible plastic impellers are produced according to bionic findings in a different part of it as well.
These impellers are then joined with the ECblue motors without delay by experienced technical employees in the motor area, turning them into bionic high-efficiency fans such as the Cpro ZAmid®. The entire production of a fan is an absolute unique selling feature of ZIEHL-ABEGG. It takes place subject to strict quality specifications and controls. The new production centre means another clear increase of delivery reliability for ZIEHL-ABEGG’s customers and ensures perfect product quality.
It is a great day for ZIEHL-ABEGG and for its customers around the world – The new plant is another seal of quality of the Royal League for first-class, future-oriented products from ZIEHL-ABEGG!

ZAmid® – the material the future is made of
ZAmid® is a special high-performance composite developed by ZIEHL-ABEGG. This high-quality special granulate is pressed into high-end impellers of special quality. Thanks to the ZAmid® composite material, these impellers have outstanding properties: They are extremely stable, extremely light-weight and extremely resilient.
