Stulz Air Technology Systems Plans $5 Million Expansion | Economy & business

Stulz Air Technology Systems, which makes high-tech cooling systems for data centers and other customers, has launched a $5 million expansion.

Stulz Air has purchased a 41,000 square foot building adjacent to its existing 140,000 square foot building and will hire 25 new permanent employees, according to the company.

The new building will house an expanded sheet metal fabrication area and a welding shop. Two new powder coating lines are being installed.

The Frederick location is the German company’s North American headquarters; its head office is in Hamburg. The Frederick site performed engineering, design, metal stamping, electrical wiring, powder coating, control programming, piping and testing for its products sold in North America. North.

“To us, that’s what ‘Made in America’ means,” company president Joerg Dresler said in a press release Friday, in opposition to many companies that produce components overseas and don’t assemble products only in the United States.

The company said it manufactures energy-efficient precision air conditioners, outdoor air handlers, ultrasonic humidifiers and desiccant dehumidifiers.

“We have received great news regarding potential expansions and moves in Frederick County,” Frederick County Commissioners Chairman Blaine Young said. “The economy appears to be headed in the right direction, and people have found Frederick County’s business-friendly environment to be the perfect place to do business.”

Stulz in Frederick has 375 employees, according to the County Economic Development Office’s Large Business List.

In 2011, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot awarded Stulz the “Better With Less” award for his work in energy conservation and researching niche markets. The award was given to a single company in each county that year.

Desler said the expansion is due to increased demand and changing market conditions.

“The critical cooling industry is becoming more sophisticated and customers are demanding a wider array of custom and semi-custom solutions,” Desler said. “By having direct control over our manufacturing process and proximity to high quality local suppliers, I believe Stulz is better suited to meet the needs of a changing market.”
