Zeman & Co: New Heat Pump Plant for Fa. Windhager

Renewable energies and heat pumps are currently in high demand, and demand has increased as a result of the energy transition and the price increases for fossil fuels. This is why heating specialist Windhager Zentralheizung GmbH is building Austria’s most modern production and development plant for heat pumps in Pinsdorf near Gmunden. With a production capacity of up to 40,000 heat pumps per year, the new site will go down as a milestone in the company’s history and make an important contribution to environmental and climate protection.

“We are proud that we were able to convince Windhager to be part of this important project for Austria’s sustainable future. Windhager and Zeman are both family-run traditional companies from Austria and represent very similar values,” says Josef Bartlechner, Managing Director of Zeman & Co, delighted with the order.

In the short period from April 2023 to March 2024, the steel construction specialist Zeman & Co will be commissioned as general contractor to build the new warehouse and production halls with a total area of around 27,000 m². The main trades are: engineering, steel supporting structure, timber element ceiling incl. Acoustic soffits, panel façades, aluminum mullion and transom façades, aluminum portals, windows, doors, skylight domes, fire protection cladding, an extensively greened roof on the office building and much more.

Zeman Group: Everything from a single source

Zeman & Co is an Austrian company from the family-run and internationally active Zeman Group. Other companies from the broad-based and well-established group of companies are involved as subcontractors: PEM Gesellschaft m.b.H., the hall specialist from Austria, is responsible for the façade cladding, the connections and finishes of the façade as well as the windows. The Group’s own plants Zekon Sp. z o.o. and Zeman Çelik Türkiye, which are equipped with innovative machines from Zeman Bauelemente, produce and supply the steel structures. It should be emphasized that mainly local subcontractors were commissioned for the remaining trades. The timber element ceilings are being erected in collaboration with Graf-Holztechnik GmbH.
