This major investment in BMZ’s German production capacity is dedicated to serve the growing demand in the booming energy storage solutions market. Welding is one of the key processes within battery production and at the same time a potential bottle neck of the whole production process. With over 100 years of experience in resistance welding, Amada Weld Tech is well aware of the challenges of joining appliciations in battery pack production. By combining the knowledge from its in-house design department with the expertise of its application and research labs, resistance welding systems can be created to make daily operation as efficient as possible.

As a key player (white lable as well as BMZ-branded products) on the energy storage solutions market, BMZ extends its market position by investing early in enlarging production capacity, in order to continue to meet the exponential rise in customer demands. As a manufacturer of welding equipment Amada Weld Tech will contribute to BMZ’s future growth, by providing maximum process stability and excellent repeatability, by supplying proven, reliable welding systems.

The energy storage market is estimated to almost quadruple its worldwide volume by 2027. The rising demand is a result of increased responsibility amongst industry and homeowners, as part of the energy transition for climate development. Additionally, the world market shows a growing desire for energy storage, which Amada Weld Tech fully supports. The welding specialist will continue to offer design expertise, technical knowledge and optimum solutions, by providing fully automated production machines.

With this latest major investment in German production capacity, BMZ not only commands its own market position and strenghthens the ‘made in Germany’ share of the global energy market, it also protects existing and creates numerous new jobs in the industrial competence area, at the Bavarian lower Main.
