Stulz opens new Benelux HQ

NETHERLANDS: Stulz, the mission critical air conditioning specialist, has expanded its presence across the Benelux region with a new corporate headquarters in the Netherlands. 

Located in the Dutch business centre of Hoofddorp, in the immediate vicinity of Schiphol Airport, the new Stulz Groep BV headquarters took 10 months to build. It is designed to be as sustainable as possible through the extensive use of innovative and environmentally focused technologies, including various Stulz solutions. 

More than 950 solar collectors have been installed, which are capable of meeting the average annual energy requirements of around 130 households and supply an energy volume of up to 350,000kWh per year. In addition to fully supplying the energy needs of office workstations, production and warehouse facilities, the sustainable concept also provides enough electricity for 10 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. These will supply power to a new EV fleet and can be further expanded as required. 

The new Hoofddorp building replaces the previous Stulz Groep BV headquarters in Amstelveen and accommodates more than 60 employees. With up to 2,700 pallet storage spaces, the site offers a total usable area of up to 9,000m². In the future, production at the site will focus primarily on the Stulz Climapac air handling units and new heat pump solutions.
