Heidelberg, Germany –
- Heidelberg Engineering is moving to the SkyLabs tower, a new emblematic building in central Heidelberg.
- The company has grown significantly in the last few years and more space is now needed for the 200 Heidelberg-based employees.
Heidelberg Engineering will be moving this week to its brand-new office and laboratory building in the Bahnstadt area right next to Heidelberg’s railway station. The Bahnstadt is a new development built on the grounds of a former freight depot that combines living and cultural spaces with commercial buildings to the highest sustainability standards.
The need for more space reflects Heidelberg Engineering’s constant growth in the past few years. Since early 2014, the number of employees has increased by over 40%. Most of these employees have been hired to work in research and development.
“The proximity to scientific and research activities is vital for our company and Heidelberg is an ideal place in that sense”, said Christoph Schoess, Managing Director of Heidelberg Engineering.
Some employees had already relocated to SkyLabs a year ago. From now on all headquarter employees will be reunited in the same building. Heidelberg Engineering also owns subsidiaries in the USA, UK, and Australia, totaling 100 employees.
For 25 years, Heidelberg Engineering has been providing solutions to the fundamental diagnostic challenges in ophthalmology. The company brings together clinical, scientific and technological expertise with the goal of raising standards in diagnostic imaging.
