New solar power system
and e-charging station

New solar power system
for our site in Kisfalud, Hungary

Solar power at Mayer Kisfalud, Hungary

We are very pleased to announce the completion of the new solar power system on the roofs of our Mayer site in Kisfalud, Hungary. The system generates approximately 275,000 – 290,000 kWh per year and will cover 35 – 45% of our electricity needs on site in Kisfalud. 

Projects like these make a decisive contribution to the success of the energy revolution. Not only because energy is used more efficiently, electricity is produced regeneratively and tons of CO² are saved. They should also serve as a source of inspiration and a role model for our colleagues in industry to take this important step toward renewable energies.

Solar power at Mayer Heidenheim, Germany

Ten years ago, shareholder and managing director Klaus Mayer already put a solar power system into operation on the entire roof of the company in Heidenheim. In the course of the expansion of the site in 2018, the company also wanted to set an example with an ecological investment in the future. Therefore, a solar power system with a lithium-ion energy storage system was installed to the right of the Mayer administration building, on the facade of the industrial hall. This means that a total of 60% of the electricity required at the Heidenheim site is covered.

New e-charging station
for our site in Heidenheim, Germany

In order to become even more energy-efficient on site in Heidenheim, we also had a charging station built in August 2021 for up to 4 of our future electric cars. Powered by 100% green electricity, both we on site and our sales representatives and service technicians on the road will save large amounts of climate-damaging CO².

Project description: 

The aim of the project was to replace our existing painting plant with modern technology capable of handling our increased orders. The aim is to increase efficiency by replacing our existing obsolete technology with a powder coating system. Professional customer service and high quality will allow us to expand with new partners in addition to our increased order book.

A few months ago, a new laser cutting machine was purchased that can cut up to 4 m, however our bending machines can only bend up to 3 m, so an edge bender needs to be bought. On the other hand, the machine is state-of-the-art technology, and we have asked for options that make the operators’ work much easier (parts do not have to be lifted by workers, the machine helps them do so), thus increasing productivity.

Prior to installing the powder spraying and edge bending equipment, we would like to modify our existing hall, as the installation of this equipment requires an optimisation of the layout of the building. The budget for the conversion, which entails a change of function, has been drawn up in a realistic and economical way, in line with market prices. Following the conversion, the new equipment will be housed in our current stocks of finished goods and finished products. The unification of two halls will be one of the tasks of the transformation. A partition wall between the halls will be demolished and a support column will be relocated. The concrete under the washing cabin must be dismantled and replaced as specified by the installer. Also new foundations for the two new support columns as well as beams will be installed, and possibly a new one for the metal structure of the equipment.

We believe that the transition to renewable energy is a common goal, so we aim to use the planned heat pump to produce thermal energy. With the installation of a heat pump, our energy efficiency will be increased and carbon emission will be reduced.

Our parent company is based in Germany, communication is mostly in German, therefore we would like 2 employees to be enrolled in a German online training course at level B1 at Katedra language school.

By using leadership and management consultancy/development, we want to achieve a review of our organisational structure and suggestions for optimising our workflow. After completing the programme, feedback will be given on areas for improvement and an individual development plan by Agora Institute. Our goal is to increase operational efficiency, gain market share, increase our customer base and generate higher revenues.

The planned acquisition of equipment, building renovation, heat pump installation and the use of training and consultancy services will have a positive impact on cash flow, profitability, and stability of the company. With higher revenues, a minimal change in the level of existing fixed costs will result in improved profitability.
