Hemer Production Site

GROHE production site since 1982

Approximately 600 employees

Each year, in Hemer …

  • More than 2 million fittings
  • More than 5 million cartridges
  • More than 0,7 million Rapido concealed bodies
  • More than 0,2 million thermostats

… are being manufactured.

In 2015, GROHE commissioned a combined heat and power plant (CHP) in Hemer. This generates 3,400,000 kWh of electricity p.a., which is equiv- alent to a consumption of 680 four-person households.
The electricity is used in the foundry for melting brass. The generated waste heat is used in electroplating for surface coating. The CHP can help save up to 1,200 tonnes of CO2 per year.

INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING: FITTINGS THAT COME OUT OF THE 3D PRINTER

In 2018, GROHE will enter the next innovation level with its production site in Hemer: Thanks to the installation of two metal 3D printers, production of small series of sanitary fittings, constructed by the so-called additive manufacturing process, will start.

ADVANTAGES OF 3D PRINTING:

  • Individualization in form and function
  • Production of custom-made products in small quantities
  • Effective material usage
  • Shorter delivery times
