Menzel opens new headquarters and motor plant

In honour of company founder Kurt Menzel, the date was set for his 120th birthday on 14 May 2024. The German manufacturer successfully markets its industrial motors and tailor-made drive systems worldwide, with increasing numbers year on year. This continued success now required more space and modern production facilities designed for efficient processes and larger, heavier machines. In addition to state-of-the-art machinery, efficient paint shops and test fields that can accommodate even the largest motor configurations, the new plant is prepared for further growth. In coming years, the workforce at this site can be expanded from around 100 to 150, allowing the manufacturer to meet all customer requests.

Menzel manufactures its own motor series and also specialises in custom models and exact replicas of existing machines. Menzel builds new motors with outputs up to and beyond 25 MW from scratch, stocks a large range of motor variants up to 15 MW and adapts them at short notice for various drive tasks. The company also offers testing of motors, generators and rotary converter sets. Since the official factory commissioning on 2 January 2024, the quality management system has already been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.
