The expansion of the company site in Weeze will be completed in three stages. The first concerns a 5,000 m2 production hall, scheduled to be completed in October of this year.
Work on specific plans for the second construction stage will start this summer. That will include an office and training center with 80 office workstations and a parking garage with 160 parking spaces. In the third stage, there are plans to construct a public hydrogen refueling station.
Investment for the first construction stage runs to approximately EUR 12.5 million. The expansion will grow the current production area from 11,000 to 16,000 m2, but the resultant production capacity is disproportionately greater.
The investments will significantly boost the number of employees at Hexagon Purus in Weeze. At the end of 2022, the company recorded a headcount of 243. By the end of this year, that number is expected to hit 350.
Michael Kleschinski, Executive Vice President of Hexagon Purus, said: “This construction project shows that we want to grow in the region, offer future-proof jobs, and drive the energy transition.”
