Sartorius Campus expands: Official opening of the new manufacturing facility for laboratory instruments

The largest single investment of Sartorius Campus totaling around 42 million euros

With its new facility for the manufacture of laboratory instruments, Sartorius provides high-quality production conditions and an advanced, efficient work environment. The biopharmaceutical and laboratory equipment supplier officially opened its approximately 42-million-euro new building as part of Sartorius Campus in the presence of some 250 guests, including Lower Saxony's Governor, Stephan Weil, and the Mayor of the City of Goettingen, Rolf-Georg Köhler. Around 450 employees build laboratory instruments, such as balances, ultrapure water systems and moisture analyzers, at this facility covering about 25,000 square meters, or nearly 270,000 square feet, in the industrial zone of Grone in Goettingen.

The production facility, to which the State of Lower Saxony and the German federal government together contributed 4.2 million euros, represents the largest single investment of Sartorius Campus.  On the whole, Sartorius is investing around 500 million euros in its Campus up to completion of construction scheduled for the end of 2018. The new Group headquarters will combine two Goettingen sites and, apart from providing more capacity for manufacture and administration, offers an attractive work environment. Moreover, the Campus grounds covering around 170,000 square meters, or 1,829,865 square feet, can be used to further expands its facilities.

The new building combines different manufacturing sites, formerly spread out at various locations, all under one roof: parts manufacture, prototype construction, calibration center, an extended vocational training workshop and an administration complex. Glass expanses of close to 7,000 square meters, or 75,350 square feet, provide plenty of daylight throughout all areas of the building; a modern office design permits efficient work. As highly accurate balances are also calibrated inside, the building is protected from temperature fluctuations and protected by a foundation isolated from vibration by decoupling.
