Strong Signal: Erwin Hymer Group invests 30 Million Euros in Bad Waldsee Location

BAD WALDSEE, 26 October 2023 – The Erwin Hymer Group (EHG) has announced the expansion of its production and logistics areas in Bad Waldsee. After the approval of the Bad Waldsee city council at the end of July, a total area of 21,000 m² was purchased with the assurance of a right of first refusal for a further 12,000 m². Hymer’s sandwich parts production and the logistics center of the newly founded EHG Services GmbH are to be housed in the Teichäcker and Wasserstall areas of the Gewerbepark Nord (North Industrial Park). The investment for both construction projects totals 30 million euros.


Hymer GmbH & Co. KG’s existing “Werk 3” factory site in the North Industrial Park will be expanded by more than 8,000 m². Construction will begin in Q1 2024 and is expected to be completed in Q2 2025. By bundling production, assembly and logistics in a central area, transport routes can be shortened and the costs for building maintenance, servicing and energy supply can be reduced.


The new logistics location for EHG Services GmbH, on the Wasserstall site of the North Industrial Park in the immediate vicinity of the Erwin Hymer Museum, also follows the principle of short distances. A new service and logistics center for the Erwin Hymer Group is being built on an area of 21,000 m² with a floor area of more than 8,000 m². The employees benefit from the Wasserstall business park’s central location and good public transport connections.


The development of the new areas is carried out according to high environmental standards. Green roofs and photovoltaic systems will make a significant contribution to achieving the group-wide sustainability goals.

“Our investment in the Bad Waldsee base is a clear commitment to the region and our employees,” says Alexander Leopold, CEO of the Erwin Hymer Group. “In this way, we strengthen our competitiveness, create the conditions for sustainable growth and secure jobs.”
