The new headquarters of Jetter AG will be built according to the latest standards of sustainable construction
The symbolic groundbreaking ceremony for the new corporate headquarters in the Marbach Energy and Technology Park took place on March 16, 2022. Together, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board Martin Jettr, the CEO Christian Benz, the architects Jochen Freivogel and Steffen Mayer and Marbach's mayor Jan Trost marked the official start of construction work with this event.
A seven-story office and administration building as well as a production hall with elevated storage and logistics area are being built on the site of approx. 10,000 m². Its energy-efficient design along with a large-scale photovoltaic system makes the new facility a low-energy building according to KfW efficiency class 40.
With the new building, Jetter AG creates the conditions for further growth and at the same time emphasizes its local roots. The company will vacate its current location in Ludwigsburg-Neckarweihingen. Both the available spatial capacities and the production and logistics environments can no longer adequately meet the requirements of modern processes.
Christian Benz on the new building: "Here in Marbach we find the best conditions to realize our ambitious growth targets. The available space provides optimal production and working conditions, as well as a modern working environment in every respect. Following our products, which have been providing sustainable and process-safe automation solutions for decades, our new building will also live up to our high standards of being able to operate in a particularly sustainable manner."
The building shell is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2022 and the production area is to start work as early as the summer of 2023. All other business units are scheduled to move in by the end of 2023.
A good opportunity to familiarize oneself with the new location was gladly taken - on the occasion of the ground-breaking ceremony, all employees were invited and turned out in large numbers. Many visitors from neighboring companies also did not miss the event, as did specialist planners and members of the local council. A good omen for the further course.
