Germany: Laboratory Equipment Sartorius Opens Manufacturing Facility for Laboratory Instruments
Sartorius officially opened its new production facility as part of Sartorius Campus. The investment has a volume of approx. € 42 million.
Goettingen/Germany — In the facility covering about 25,000 m2, located in the industrial zone in Grone, Goettingen, around 450 employees build laboratory instruments, such as balances, ultrapure water systems and moisture analyzers.
The production facility, to which the State of Lower Saxony and the German federal government together contributed € 4.2 million, represents the largest single investment of Sartorius Campus.
Altogether, the company is investing around € 500 million in its Campus up to completion of construction scheduled for the end of 2018. The new Group headquarters will combine two Goettingen sites and, apart from providing more capacity for manufacture and administration, offers an attractive work environment. Moreover, the Campus grounds covering around 170,000 m2 can be used to further expands its facilities.
The new building combines different manufacturing sites, formerly spread out at various locations, all under one roof: parts manufacture, prototype construction, calibration center, an extended vocational training workshop and an administration complex.
