1. Place „Gipfelstürmer des Jahres 2018“

Profilmetall GmbH from Hirrlingen offers a broad portfolio ranging from the development of innovative profiles to the worldwide logistics of ready-to-assemble profiles. Following the KEFF check, the company implemented energy efficiency measures from several fields of action. The company optimized the process and the building directly. The compressed air compressor and the compressed air ring line were optimized and the plant was equipped with an intelligent control system. The motor control on the production equipment was improved. The lighting has been completely replaced by LEDs, and intelligent control is also used here. The company is also focusing on heat recovery, electric mobility – including forklifts – and involving its 64 employees in the search for and implementation of efficiency measures. The company saves around 300,000 kilowatt hours per year as a result of the measures implemented.
