LIQUI MOLY is opening a new chapter at its headquarters in Ulm. Managing Directors Günter Hiermaier and Dr. Uli Weller have inaugurated a new building for the production of additives with three modern dispensing systems and additional office space. 


The new machines increase the maximum output from 346,000 cans per week to up to 481,000. “The kick-off marks a milestone on our way to achieving our joint sales target of 1 billion euro,” said the Managing Director in front of representatives from politics, business, the media and the workforce.

LIQUI MOLY has invested 8 million euro in the newly opened additive production facility. Of these, 3.4 million euro are attributable to the turnkey building. The costs for the three new dispensing systems amount to 3.1 million euro. Conveyor technology and packaging robots account for 1.4 million euro. These machines will be fully installed and commissioned over the course of next year. 

“These investments are a commitment to the Ulm site and thus to Made in Germany. We create more jobs and give people a long-term perspective,” says Günter Hiermaier. Of course, the machines have an impact on the employees, but contrary to what may be assumed: New machines do not mean fewer people, but a growth in jobs in other areas as well, because more is produced. And working conditions will continue to improve. “LIQUI MOLY is a modern employer. People should and must feel comfortable working here with us. This is what we demand of ourselves,” said the Managing Director. That’s why 200 square meters of space were created for state-of-the-art offices on the third floor, in addition to the 400 square meters of production space spread over two floors.

“Perviously in exceptional years, 18 million cans from 150 ml to 1 litre in size were filled with the existing machinery. Around 25 million units will be possible in the future. Two very old machines were scrapped. “Thanks to loving maintenance, they had been in service for many decades. But the required output quantities could no longer be achieved with them,” says Günter Hiermaier. The three new systems are more powerful and require less maintenance the best equipment for further growth.
