The facility allows the company – which is a subsidiary of Europe's largest motor and fan manufacturer - to showcase its products in an interactive display area and in its multimedia screening room.
The launch event was attended by ebm papst Mulfingen chief executive Hans-Jochen Beilke and Chelmsford deputy mayor Cllr Bob Denston (pictured above).
Managing director of ebm papst uk David Jarvis said the new facility would allow the company to “tell compelling stories about how customers can use our products to create something quite special”.
He said it was important to show that fans and motors had “no small part to play” in cutting energy use, reducing carbon emissions and saving companies and individuals money.
Mr Beilke said despite global economic conditions the company was committed to investing in facilities which will “bring rewards in the long term”.
He said: “I am confident this investment in the client centre will enhance our position in the UK by capturing more market and supporting further growth.”
Mr Beilke added that he expected economic conditions in the UK to improve in the fourth quarter and he remained optimistic the company would hit its global sales targets.
