July 6, 2011 - Endress+Hauser exands its competence center for liquid analysis. Floor space at the headquarters of Endress+Hauser Conducta has been trebled the last years – evidence of the company’s commitment to its location in Gerlingen, Germany, which can look back on decades of successful business. “Our objective is to continue to grow and to create new jobs,” declared Managing Director Dr Manfred Jagiella at the inauguration. Endress+Hauser Conducta has invested more than 15 million euros in the two building projects over the past three years. The company now has in excess of 20,000 square meters floor space at its Gerlingen site. In addition to further production and office space, a new laboratory and a seminar center have been added. Modern training and seminar rooms and the company restaurant ‘SkyRest’ are located on the upper floor. The clean design of the glass facade and supporting framework links the new buildings with the old sections. A striking canopy construction marks the new main entrance. Visitors enter the premises via a transparent, generously proportioned reception area. The heart of this communicative architecture is an atrium with glass roof. “As the central element, the atrium reflects a windmill, linking all sections of the building,” Manfred Jagiella explained the concept. The galleries opening upwards convey a sense of openness and transparency to visitors and employees alike. Room for further innovation “Work has to be fun – but it also has to be successful,” emphasized Manfred Jagiella. “The new building will support us in achieving these objectives.” Klaus Endress, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, stressed the significance of liquid analysis devices in the future product portfolio. Reflecting these ideas, Professor Hans-Jörg Bullinger, president of the German research organization Fraunhofer Society, spoke about ‘The outlook for future markets – Germany as a location with innovation potential’. During a guided tour the guests – including Georg Brenner, the Mayor of Gerlingen – were able to see the company’s performance for themselves.
