Energy-efficient and cost-effective heating and cooling applications are booming. According to the German Heat Pump Association (Bundesverband Wärmepumpe e.V.), heat pump sales in Germany alone increased by 53 percent in 2022 compared to the previous year. In view of this development, more heat exchangers are needed for the heat pump market. That is why Kelvion has expanded its production capacities in Sarstedt. The site can now produce an additional 150,000 heat exchangers per year. This is an important step towards sustainably strengthening the region and the mayor of Sarstedt Heike Brennecke and City Manager Andrea Satli took the opportunity to visit the plant to personally congratulate the local management on the successful expansion. Kelvion is currently looking for staff in various areas of production and administration.

During the factory tour, Heike Brennecke and Andrea Satli gained an insight into Kelvion's production processes. "I am very pleased that Kelvion is investing further in our location with the expansion of the production halls,” says Heike Brennecke. “With state-of-the-art technologies and efficient heat exchangers, which are used in almost all buildings and machines these days, Kelvion makes a significant contribution to climate protection. Kelvion is one of the largest employers in Sarstedt. This strengthens our town and the region. The course for the future has been set."

4,3 Million Euro investment
Regardless of the short-term cooling in the market, the growth prospects for heat pumps remain positive. Kelvion has invested a total of 4.3 million euros in manufacturing capacity for brazed heat exchangers. "We have put all processes to the test and optimised them so that we can meet our customers' needs and achieve even shorter lead times. With two production lines, we can significantly increase our output as a result," says plant manager Christian Wendel. "Until now, orders for the heat pump industry were primarily produced by our plant in Nobitz-Wilchwitz. We in Sarstedt are therefore very pleased to support our colleagues in Nobitz-Wilchwitz in the future and to continue to grow at the Sarstedt site."
