Fronius is investing in worldwide expansion

Fronius is investing in worldwide expansion

February 15, 2023 5:09 pm

Fronius invested EUR 187 million in 2022 to expand and convert production sites in Austria and the Czech Republic, creating a stable manufacturing situation with capacity for additional production lines and jobs.

In 2022, during prevailing circumstances, such as unstable supply chains and shortages of components and staff, Fronius could produce almost 32,000 inverters per month for the solar market. Production is still running at full capacity and will increase by 65 percent to 52,000 inverters per month by the end of 2023.

Additional production lines, stable manufacturing
We invested EUR 187 million in expanding and converting our production sites in Sattledt, Austria, and eskKrumlov, Czech Republic, in 2022. We plan to increase our investment to more than EUR 230 million next year. “The additional production lines help us meet high demand”, says Martin Hackl, Global Director of Marketing and Sales, Business Unit Solar Energy.

In Sattledt, the floor space has been expanded by more than 28,000 m2 to 69,000 m2. Already in operation, the Fronius Tauro has been produced in the northern extension of the production plant since August.

A further production line for the Fronius GEN24 Plus will also be built this year as part of the renovations of the existing production facilities. Two further production lines for hybrid inverters will be added in 2023.

Our inductive component competence centre in eskKrumlov (the Czech Republic) was recently expanded, and the next stage of growth is already planned: not only will production areas be significantly expanded over the next five years, but the number of employees will more than double.

Overall, the Fronius workforce will see strong growth in the coming years, with around 1,300 new employees being welcomed worldwide by the end of 2023.

The products and solutions represent European quality and sustainability. We can meet the demands of the solar market while remaining true to our standards and values by expanding our production capacities and trusting our predominantly European suppliers. Maintaining and promoting the European value chain is particularly important to us. 95 percent of our contract partners are based in Europe.

Investing in the future in a sustainable manner
We live and breathe real sustainability, consuming resources with care and using energy-saving and efficient technologies. Fronius can currently boast the largest ice storage system in Europe: two ice tanks are used at our production site in Sattledt for heating in winter and cooling in summer. The fully automatic high-bay warehouse provides space for 7,000 pallets and 12,500 containers for small parts.

Electric company vehicles and charging stations for field staff, solar power from the company’s PV system on the roof, and much more; the coming year will also bring investment in a sustainable future to many of our 25 Fronius Solar Energy branches around the world. Fronius Italy is commissioning a new PV system and charging stations for electric vehicles, and our colleagues at Fronius Switzerland will provide twelve electric vehicles for field staff starting in 2023.
