Multivac to combine all of Fritsch’s business activities on one site

The Multivac Group is cementing plans for the relocation of the Fritsch company.

Multivac has purchased  around 7.6 hectares of land on the new Industrial Park in the town of Iphofen with the aim of combining all of the dough machinery manufacturer’s operations on one site.

Currently, operations have been spread over five locations in Kitzingen and Markt Einersheim.

The start of building is scheduled for the end of 2025, and the relocation to the new site planned for the third quarter of 2027.

The new building complex with a total area of approximately 20,000 square metres will accommodate production halls and assembly facilities, which will be equipped with the latest technology.

The World of Bakery, Fritsch’s Technology Center, will also be relocated to the new site. Here customers can conduct practical tests on Fritsch equipment, and they can develop new products or recipes in conjunction with the experts from Fritsch. In addition to this, modern offices and social facilities, covering around 5,000 square metres, will be created for approximately 480 staff.

“As part of a sustainable infrastructure for the Multivac Group’s new building, there are also several measures planned for the new company site to reduce greenhouse gas emissions We want to use groundwater to heat and cool the building complex. We also want to use as much self-generated energy as possible for the energy supply with a photovoltaic system and a combined heat and power unit,” explains Christian Traumann, group president (CEO) of the Multivac Group. “Fritsch is for us a strategically important business unit. We are posting a very positive order situation in the bakery section of the group’s business, and we see a lot of potential within our subsidiaries for the entire machinery range from Fritsch. Thanks to the new company headquarters, which will combine all of Fritsch’s business activities on one site, we will be able in future to carry out our manufacturing processes even more efficiently.”
