CADCON is expanding! New Premises in AugsburgPress 27. September 2016
Right on time for the 20th Anniversary in 2017 of the company founding, a new era begins for the CADCON-Group. This step is now taken, to relocate the headquarters and the production workshops to the industrial zone Forum H4 in Augsburg, Lechhausen. With this move the company sets its targets for the future.
As a member of the international SII Group, with this new building project, CADCON is now fully committed to the joint growth objectives. At present the provider of engineering services is active all over the world and from two locations is system supplier in the Augsburg region: Since the company was set up in 1997 the company has its head office in Gersthofen, with production “CADCON Maschinenbau” in Augsburg, Kriegshaber. According to Robert Bauer, CEO and Co-Owner of CADCON, the division arose throughout the history and development of the company but is now no longer conducive to optimum efficiency – in particular through the founding of CADCON Systems two years ago at the Gersthofen head office where a second production area had to be set up. A further reason for the relocation is the extremely satisfying order situation at CADCON Maschinenbau which also demands further expansion in capacity.
“With the new building and the relocation of our head office to Augsburg we have now reached the next milestone in the history of the CADCON Group”, according to Robert Bauer. “In the Business Park Forum H4 the production and head office administration are in future directly next to each other and through concentration of competences of CADCON Machine Engineering and CADCON Systems we can thus also fully exploit the arising synergy effects for our customers for even greater performance. Moreover, the new premises are fitted out in conformity with the latest “Green-Building” standards and provide us as an internationally active technology enterprise with an ideal infrastructure. Our employees work in a highly modern technology environment, in total conformity with all requirements on ecology and economy. We thus contribute significantly to the high aims of the SII Group in respect of social and sustainable business.”
In the words of the Business and Finance Representative and Mayor of Augsburg Eva Weber: “We, the City of Augsburg welcome the settlement of CADCON in the grounds of the Industry Park Forum H4 and we are delighted with this decision. The area provides optimum conditions for further growth of CADCON and thus also for the creation of new, top-level jobs in our city.”
At present all building works are being carried out. Relocation to the 2,500 m² production workshop is planned for the end of December so that right on time at the beginning of the year, machine production starts up once again in the new premises. Relocation of the head office administration is intended for the summer of 2017.
