Reutlingen - Flat knitting machine builder Stoll has broken ground at the location for its new company headquarters.
One of the largest companies in Reutlingen, Germany, Stoll is relocating its headquarters from Stollweg 1, Reutlingen, to the industrial area of Reutlingen-Betzingen where the company already has its production facilities.
The planned construction project is divided into two phases: in addition to the existing production buildings, a development and customer center will now be built.
The architects ISIN + Co. GmbH & Co. KG from Stuttgart presented the most innovative ideas during an architectural competition and accompanied this project for the planning and construction phase.
For the first construction phase of the development center, Stoll was able to commission the company Systembau Knecht Metzingen GmbH as a general contractor while the company Reiner Schädler Bauunternehmung GmbH will take over the foundation and structural work. The development center will provide bright and modern conference rooms to hold about 70 employees.
With the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, July 26, 2019, the construction of the development center will now officially begin.
In the second phase, a modern customer centre will be built on Adolf-Kolping-Street: an efficient building with conference rooms to hold about 100 employees. This building also offers space for the Stoll showroom and training centre.
"Stoll is setting a standard with this construction project," the company said in a statement. "As a result of the relocation, development, production and administration will be combined into one location after completion of the two buildings. The Stoll technology and innovation, proven for more than 145 years, will take us into a new era with a new headquarter base."
