Tesla is no longer a single country car manufacturer but a multi-national business that provides for each market throughout the world. Still, Tesla’s surprise announcement that it will build its fourth Gigafactory near Berlin hit Germany’s car industry like a bombshell.
Bigger but better
Tesla’s Gigafactory will indeed be big by definition, but the facility near Berlin will be gentle, complex and sustainable. All due to good planning, logistics and collaboration with the community, the contractors and the subcontractors. Alther Pumpen, a Lakers family members, is a piece in this puzzle.
Alther Pumpen is a Water and Wastewater pump supply specialist company out of Greifswald in northern Germany. They have installed pumps for both small and big projects, and they were the easy choice when the Project Leaders at Tesla needed a pump supplier who could deliver high-quality pumps in a complex and hyper-modern facility. Andreas Tingvall, a Swede living in Germany, tells us the story.
