Aira has opened its €300 million heat pump production site in Wroclaw, Poland, one year after the company’s launch.

The 220,000 sq m factory has capacity for 500,000 heat pumps a year and will create 2,000 jobs in the area, the company says.

The factory has received a €15 million grant from the Polish government to support the establishment of the Wroclaw site.

Martin Lewerth, Aira Group chief executive said:

The facility is not just a factory; it’s a beacon of our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and a decarbonised future for Europe. Today, 130 million boilers still heat homes across Europe, this presents a significant market opportunity while more importantly, reducing customer heating bills and carbon emissions. Our Polish production site is pivotal for this transformation, and it is great to get started now.

Aira has stated its ambition to serve five million European homes with clean energy-tech solutions over the coming decade.

Peter Prem, Chief Product Supply Officer, said:

This is a significant moment for Aira and all the teams involved. We’ve rapidly transitioned the site into an Aira production facility and it’s with great pride that we are officially inaugurating the factory this week, a year after our launch. I am particularly proud of all the fantastic people that made this possible in such a short time. We are accelerating the green transition by producing intelligent and beautiful heat pumps at scale here, and this is just the beginning.

Aira will be exhibiting at InstallerSHOW. The show runs on 25 to 27 June at the NEC. It is free to attend, including parking. Register for FREE tickets here: installer-2024-splash.reg.buzz
