Torqeedo GmbH recently celebrated the grand opening of a brand-new 8300m2 building near Munich where all company activities, including research, development and production, will now take place. The company, its business partners and members of the press gathered for remarks from Fabian Bez, Torqeedo’s Chief Executive Officer, and Dr Florian Herrmann MdL, Head of the Bavarian State Chancellery and State Minister for Federal Affairs and Media.
Dr Herrmann remarked: ‘Torqeedo are global champions for cleantech and electric mobility on water and enrich the location with their new company headquarters. Climate protection and zero-emission mobility are key issues in Bavaria on the way to climate neutrality, in which we are investing over 22 billion euros by 2040 with a climate protection offensive.’
CEO Bez added: ‘Whether by road, rail, air or water, sustainable forms of propulsion are needed to achieve the climate targets. At Torqeedo, we recognised this trend early on and developed battery-electric drives for watercraft. We will soon produce our 200,000th electric motor and have already filed more than 250 patents.’
