Nov 28, 2022
Aiwanger: “The site expansion of the fuel cell manufacturer Proton Motor in Fürstenfeldbruck will strengthen Bavaria’s H2 technology leadership.”

MUNICH Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH has expanded its commitment in Fürstenfeldbruck with a state-of-the-art, 13,500 m² production facility. The new additional site will be successively put into operation from the second quarter of 2023 and will complement the existing headquarters in Puchheim. This expansion – a sevenfold increase in production space compared to the company’s current buildings – will significantly increase the company’s manufacturing and testing capacities.

Bavaria’s Minister of Economic Affairs Hubert Aiwanger is pleased with the expansion: “Hydrogen applications in mobility are our future. With its investment in expansion, Proton Motor is confirming the increased demand for hydrogen engines and thereby strengthening the outstanding importance of the Free State in the research and development of new and emission-free drive technologies.”

The Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Business Promotion Agency of the State of Bavaria “Invest in Bavaria” are actively supporting Proton Motor in implementing its expansion plans in Fürstenfeldbruck. This investment will also create numerous new jobs.
