MAHA Introduces Energy Management The workshop equipper from the Allgäu region sets new standards in the industry for energy efficiency Since December 2011 Maha Maschinenbau Haldenwang GmbH & Co. KG has been certified in accordance with DIN EN 16001:2009. Thus, the workshop outfitter from Allgäu is one of the first companies in the industry to introduce an energy management system based on European standards. The “maha greenline“ product line emphasizes the involvement of the workshop outfitter for better environmental protection.

By the year 2020 the federal government wants to reduce CO2 emissions in Germany by 40 % in comparison to 1990 levels. This can only be achieved through more efficient energy usage. Using an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN 16001:2009 companies can improve their energy efficiency there by making a significant contribution to environmental protection.

Sustainable Environmental Policy MAHA Maschinenbau Haldenwang GmbH & Co. KG is one of the first companies in the workshop outfitting industry that has been certified in accordance with these standards. “With the certification in accordance with DIN EN 16001:2009 we are continuing down the path already set of pursuing a sustainable environmental policy. Again we are setting important trends in the industry and meeting the demands that leading automobile manufacturers place on their suppliers “, says Klaus Burger, MAHA Managing Director.

An important milestone on the path to an energy efficient company was the introduction of the enviromental management in accordance with ISO 14001:2004 in 2010. With this the MAHA management created a tool that makes possible environmentally friendly production in all areas of the company.

Furthermore, within the context of the Climate Protection Initiative of the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Reactor Safety MAHA participates in the energy efficiency network of the Energy and Environmental Center Allgäu (eza). In addition to information exchanges across all industries this platform offers tips and suggestions to improve energy efficiency in the company and is a pilot project associated with the Fraunhofer Institute. As part of the certification process in accordance with DIN EN 16001:2009 MAHA has implemented numerous measures to reduce energy consumption. For example, the powder paint coating system was insulated to reduce heat loss. In addition, the roof of the production hall was renovated in relation to energy savings and a 270 kW photovoltaik system was installed. In this way MAHA can produce some of the electric energy it needs and feed it back into the grid. The company’s own fleet will be equipped with environmentally friendly electric vehicles.

At the end of April 2012 the DIN EN 16001:2009 will be replaced by the international standard DIN EN ISO 50001:2011. MAHA has already initiated all nec essary measures in order to switch to the new standard without delay.

New Product line “maha green line“ The DIN EN 16001:2009 certification also has an effect on MAHA products. Energy efficiency and environmental aspects were in the forefront during the development of the innovative emission tester series MET 6.x in both choice of material and electrical consumption.

Furthermore, MAHA will focus on energy efficiency with future products – from development through production up to customer usage. Products which meet these criteria will belong to the maha green line and be labeled as such. See www.maha.de/mgl for an overview of maha green line products, projects to improve energy efficiency and further developments.
