Booming demand for electromobility - Heidelberg doubles production capacity for Wallboxes

01/20/2021

  • Second production line taken into operation at the Wiesloch-Walldorf site
  • Electric vehicle owners prefer charging system for private use
  • Heidelberg among the market leaders for wallboxes in Germany
  • Focus on European rollout

Demand for charging solutions for electric vehicles in private use is growing rapidly. Current market analyses predict annual growth of over 20 percent. Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is already one of the most successful wallbox suppliers on the German market. To serve the rising demand in this sector more effectively and thus strengthen its market position even further, Heidelberg has now taken into operation a second production line for the manufacture of its wallboxes at its Wiesloch-Walldorf site. In doing so, the company is planning to roughly double production capacity by April this year. Heidelberg is now manufacturing the Heidelberg Wallbox Home Eco and Heidelberg Wallbox Energy Control models with various cable lengths and customization options for the German and European markets in two-shift operation on two production lines.

“The market for wallboxes is booming. Our production capacity is being used to the full and we’ve established ourselves as a successful supplier on this market of the future. By taking into operation a second production line, we can respond to the high customer demand more effectively. In doing so, we’re systematically pursuing our growth plans on the highly promising electromobilty market,” says Heidelberg CEO Rainer Hundsdörfer.
