On 7 December with employees and more than 500 international guests Güntner celebrated the Grand Opening new plant.

Production Plant I in Sibiu, Romania, started in 2016. The new Güntner Group megafactory Plant II, which is almost three times the size, will go into operation in the immediate vicinity in December 2019.

Built in a record time of just eight months, the Sibiu II Megafactory has a ground-level production area of more than 30,000 m² on a site covering 7 hectares.

Sibiu I was already the group’s most automated plant, and the new facility will open up expanded production capabilities. Cutting-edge technologies used include highly automated, self-loading sheet processing centres which determine production steps using artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Autonomous intralogistics systems, including mobile industrial robots (MIRs), will optimise the delivery of parts between work stations.

All of the processes at the Sibiu II Megafactory have been reviewed and optimised, down to the last detail. For example, pressure testing methods have to meet increasingly demanding technical and safety requirements for refrigerants with high operating pressures. The pressure testing system has undergone an end-to-end update, and for the first time ever, laser technology and robotics will be used on a large scale to improve every stage of the process.

Güntner Group is not only responsible for providing reliable and sustainable products to satisfy increasing global demand for energy-efficient, high-quality heat exchangers for refrigeration and air conditioning systems. It is also of vital importance to have a production process where quality and sustainability is embedded throughout. To achieve this, a positive, healthy environment that embodies the group’s core values, is essential for all staff.

Sibiu II will have a 13,000 m2 botanical garden and uses Güntner Group’s “Planted Plant” concept in the design, with natural plants incorporated in the fabric of the building. Natural light and large green areas, both on the supporting pillars in the main production hall and in separate island areas, create a unique climate for staff and demonstrate the high priority given to carefully designed products and their manufacture.

Research has shown that working in a natural environment has a profoundly positive impact on health and happiness. The new Sibiu II Megafactory embodies this approach, where every aspect is designed with workforce wellbeing in mind. This approach will be applied throughout Güntner Group to ensure industry-leading productivity and to benefit customers world-wide.

For decades, Güntner Group has been synonymous with sustainability, reliability and uncompromising quality. This bold investment in the company’s future underlines its commitment to remaining a leading player in the industry. The Güntner Group Sibiu II Megafactory is an expression of technological expertise and the group’s desire to rise to achieve engineering excellence in the context of a rapidly changing environment.

The MEGAFACTORY Sibiu II not only represents a milestone in Güntner’s history – it is also a benchmark for new, sustainable concepts implemented in a rigorous manner.
