GERMANY: Compressor manufacturer Bitzer is to build a new office headquarters building close to its current site in Sindelfingen.

The new building will maintain the close ties that Bitzer has had with Sindelfingen ever since its foundation in 1934. Bitzer has called for tenders from architects for the building, which will be designed to accommodate around 500 workers.

The new building will be situated on Tilsiter Strasse, within view of the current headquarters. It is hoped it will become an architectural landmark, being clearly visible from the A81 motorway.

“By investing in the new heart of the company, BItzer is making an unambiguous statement about the location in Sindelfingen and we will increase its value significantly,” said ceo Peter Schaufler.
