to Meet Global Demand for Lab Consumables

September 2019. The Eppendorf Group is boosting its production capacity at its site in Oldenburg in Holstein by building two new production halls. Operations at the two sites will begin in the second half of 2020, significantly increasing the overall capacity of Eppendorf Polymere GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eppendorf AG.

Targeted further development: more capacity, more jobs
Wilhelm Plüster, Member of the Management Board and Chief Technology Officer at Eppendorf AG pointed out that his company is currently investing heavily in the expansion of its facilities around the world and the new Oldenburg production halls will enable the company to further increase the global availability of high-quality consumables. The production site has been undergoing targeted further development for years and has been growing continuously. Just last year, a fully automated high-bay storage facility with around 13,000 pallet bays went into operation. The employee headcount is also rising steadily, with the new construction projects to further raise the total number of employees in Oldenburg. According to Thomas Reimann, Managing Director of Eppendorf Polymere GmbH ten trainees and fifty new employees have been hired in just this year alone. At present, Eppendorf employs around 400 people at Oldenburg / Holstein.
