LAUDA expands headquarters with office space
Visible sign of growth
With a symbolic laying of the foundation stone, LAUDA DR. R. WOBSER GMBH & CO. KG celebrated the official start of construction for an extension to an existing office building. When the office building with production hall was erected and completed in 2008, an extension had already been planned, reported Dr. Gunther Wobser, Managing Partner of the company, in the presence of guests of honour, cooperation partners, the two other LAUDA Managing Directors Dr. Marc Stricker and Dr. Mario Englert, Production Manager Christoph Baumann, Daniel Eckl, Operations Technology and Services and Sebastian Fell, Marketing LAUDA.
"Especially in these Corona times, laying the foundation stone and starting construction are both a sign of confidence and one of entrepreneurial growth due to an expansive order situation," explained Dr. Gunther Wobser. That is why it is very important to create not only additional space for production, but also for office staff. As an ambitious expansion target, the world market leader for temperature control units and systems is aiming for a turnover of 250 million euros per year in the next few years. In order to meet the increased space requirements at the company's central headquarters, the existing multi-storey building is being extended by a further storey.
Managing Director Dr. Marc Stricker estimated the building project, which was planned and supervised by architect Klaus Schreiner, at around 2,500 m³ of space on a gross area of 430 m². It provides for office space in an "open space concept", including rooms for lounges and technical infrastructures. Completion of the building with a total investment volume of around 1.1 million euros and the start of occupancy are planned for March 2022, although the start of construction has been delayed somewhat due to the current shortage of building materials. "It was important to us to work with regional partner companies as far as possible," Dr Marc Stricker emphasised. Accordingly, 50 percent of the contracts have so far been awarded to companies from the region without exception, such as the construction company Faul und Bethäuser GmbH.
