The aim of the new building is to double the available floor space in order to meet the increased requirements of recent years. Once completed, the 11,000 square meters of office space and 7,500 square meters of laboratory space will accommodate approximately 500 employees of research and development. For the different departments and divisions, this will create an environment enabling a more modern and efficient collaboration.
Stefan Brandl, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ebm-papst Group, explains: "With the construction of our new Development Center, we once again are investing heavily in our Mulfingen location. With modern laboratory equipment and new forms of workplace design we want to orient the company towards the future and thus continue to drive the expansion of our leadership in innovation."
So that the research and work spaces meet the latest methods and standards, among others, the Fraunhofer Institute IAO is involved in the planning of the new building and its equipment. Detailed planning also ensures that communication and creativity zones are available in addition to the necessary functionality.
The building, which will be designed in accordance with the ebm-papst GreenTech guideline, is to be completed in early 2020.
