Phoenix Contact E-Mobility GmbH (Schieder-Schwalenberg, Germany) is expanding its production capacity with a new facility in Poland. The 15,000-m² plant at the Science and Technology Park Rzeszów-Dworzysko will be built by full-service industrial real estate developer Panattoni. The new facility is set to be completed by the end of 2020/start of 2021.

The charging technology manufacturer will use the new production location in Rzeszów for the manufacture and testing of various a.c.- and d.c.-charging cables, among other things, that are supplied to leading automotive and charging infrastructure manufacturers. The new building provides a total area of 15,000 m², which is divided into 14,000 m² of production and storage space and 1,000 m² of office space. Production is scheduled to commence at the start of 2021 and the workforce will increase to over 250 employees within the next few years. In addition to his role as Director Business Administration at the company’s headquarters in Schieder-Schwalenberg, Marwin Achenbach will also head up the management team responsible for the new facility.

Rzeszów will be an important location in Phoenix Contact E-Mobility’s global production network. It will play a particularly significant role in international collaboration between locations in Germany, Poland, and China. In addition, IATF-compliant production and business processes will be implemented to ensure that the innovative products meet high quality requirements.

Project manager Christoph Paetzold explains that the chosen location offers many advantages: “Rzeszów is a dynamic and fast-growing city with universities and many well-established industrial companies. The region is also known as Aviation Valley due to the numerous aerospace companies located in the area. We hope that this environment will help ensure the long-term success of our production location.” Situated close to an airport and benefiting from a well-developed road infrastructure, the Science and Technology Park Rzeszów-Dworzysko offers many advantages from a logistics point of view.

The Phoenix Contact Group already has strong ties to Poland through its subsidiary Phoenix Contact Wielkopolska in Nowy Tomyśl. Electrical engineering components for the Group have been produced there since 1994. A total of around 2,600 people work at this location.
