Upholstered Furniture Manufacturer From the Bavarian Town of Taufkirchen (Vils)

Sustainable power generation for your own production

Upholstered furniture manufacturer himolla from the Bavarian town of Taufkirchen (Vils) has grown from a small business to one of Europe's biggest upholstered furniture manufacturers within the space of a few decades. Management and employees constantly demonstrate a willingness to embrace innovation and are happy to try out new things. In 2013, for example, a PV plant provided the company with their own electricity supply.

The PV plant with almost 3,700 modules and 46 Sunny Tripower inverters has been supplying cheaper and cleaner electricity to the company's facilities and, from which 90 percent of people who reside in Taufkirchener can consume directly. The PV plant produces the most electricity exactly when production is running at full speed. As a result, the furniture manufacturer is purchasing less electricity and is therefore largely freed from worries about how energy costs will continue to rise in the future.
