Flanked by Ludwigsburg’s City Councillor for Building and Construction, Michael Ilk, the Deputy Chairman of Volksbank Ludwigsburg, Thomas Küster, the architect Harld Jahnke from Kelzenberg + Jahnke as well as the building contractor Matthias Schüle, the start of the construction was initiated together with managing director Dirk Zedler. "Without any doubt we’ve come to our borders in terms of space and logistics in our present company building. The construction of the new building is therefore a logical step for us which will enable us to provide a consistently high level of service to our customers in future as well," declared Dirk Zedler.
The new construction of the efficiency house planned exclusively from concrete, steel, wood and glass is projected as three-storey building. The working groups of the experts, the Technical Documentation department and the Testing Technology department will move to a 1300 sqm big, innovative new building in late spring 2017, which grows only 100 metres away from the current location. The new company building will not only provide much more space to the test laboratory which had experienced a disproportionate growth in the past. The training facilities will be enlarged significantly, as well. They are planned to open in autumn 2017. These facilities will be also attractive to external companies, because they host the extensive collection of historical bicycles collected by the Ludwigsburg bicycle enthusiast Helge Schultz together with company founder Dirk Zedler.
