Xylem, Weilheim

Verdion has been appointed by global water technology company Xylem to deliver a production and research facility for water analysis devices in the Achalaich business park in Weilheim, Upper Bavaria.

Xylem’s analytics division manufactures physical-chemical analysis devices for applications in the areas of water, wastewater, marine and coastal waters, food, beverages, the environment, chemistry and pharmaceuticals. It will move from existing facilities nearby to this new location.

The facility has been specifically designed to meet the company’s needs for manufacturing measuring devices, sensors and accessories and will cover 15,000 sq m incorporating four sections: a production plant, a distribution center, a research laboratory and offices and communal areas.

The €20 million project is being funded by the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP), who will continue to own the building following completion.

“The company WTW, which was renamed Xylem in 2016, has been active in Weilheim since 1954 and is therefore firmly rooted on site,” said Ulrich Schwab, Germany’s Managing Director of Analytics at Xylem. “As a result, we are very pleased to be able to secure a new location in the city with our project partner Verdion for our urgently needed space expansion. This new building enables us to modernise our production and increase efficiency, and opens up further growth opportunities.”
