Technologies for the factory of the future have been developed at the new innovation and training campus at the location in Eggelsberg. 37,600 m² of net floor area house a range of forward-looking facilities. In addition to state-of-the-art R&E laboratories and workstations for developing and testing the latest automation technologies, the "Automation Academy" will be the company's central training center. The concept also envisages that further expansion steps can be carried out very easily in the future in terms of construction through defined interfaces.
The entrance foyer with the reception and the spacious 2-story central room, 3 large (interconnectable) auditoriums, the discovery deck on the upper level, and training, academy and meeting rooms on 2 levels act as the centerpiece for corporate presentations. Flowing spatial structures for research & development spread over a total of 6 levels, clustered open-space workplaces with focus boxes, coffee&talk zones and terraces offer an open and spatially generous working environment in which the individual is allowed to keep a clear overview.

The object lives up to the highest requirements for comfort.
