Foundation Stone Ceremony

New space for new ideas


Kaeser Kompressoren is set to launch their new administration building, offering a greater capacity to relieve the pressure on existing offices where space is currently at a premium. The first stage of this significant investment was marked by the recent foundation stone ceremony.

Representatives from the Coburg-based compressed air specialist, participating construction companies and local dignitaries gathered in September 2015 to immure a time capsule commemorating the construction of Kaeser’s new administration building. Amongst other items, the capsule contains current newspapers and a selection of coins.

The need for the new building arose from the fact that various departments had become spread throughout the Kaeser site due to space constraints and limited capacity in the existing office areas. By enabling departments to be closer together and enhancing communication between employees, the new facility will therefore “create new space for new ideas”, Mr. Thomas Kaeser explained.


Move-in phase from 2017

The construction phase of the administration building itself is due for completion in late 2016, with the move-in phase prospectively beginning in spring 2017. Once the new building is complete, modernisation of the non-renovated section of the existing building will then begin.
