Aero Pump

Pahl Weber-Pahl as Architects

A not very well-known company although one of the leaders on the world market: Aero Pump. But the secret of a world market leader is probably something else: a good idea is developed into a good product. In this particular case, the product is a dosage spray-pump for the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries and for this the production has to take place under absolutely hygienic conditions.


We had to design a new production centre for the rapidly expanding company and The construction time was very short: The new production areas were to be put into operation after only eleven months, in July 2009. Set back from the former manufacturing building, the new production centre was realised as a long and businesslike crossways block. Form follows function— and the building thus serves the production process along a length of 245 metres, progressing from the delivery of raw materials and quality controls to the shelves of the automatic small parts warehouse. The central aisle with a roof made of transparent EPDM-foil leads daylight into the building.


The façade is made of aluminium panels laminated in different colours as well as the floor inside the building is. The floor colours point to varying standards in the hygiene concept for production. The paths are intuitive and self-explanatory. And wherever the necessary hygiene forbids natural greenery, large-scale photo works showing a bamboo jungle in the stairwell and staff facility areas take its place.


The administration building will follow in a second building phase, providing space for the creative minds of the development department, distribution, and seminar and conference rooms.
