New buil­ding in Groß Hesepe

In 2016, Klasmann-Deilmann GmbH will start work on con­struc­ting a new admi­nis­tra­ti­ve buil­ding at its cor­po­ra­te head­quar­ters in Groß Hese­pe. The­se plans have been dri­ven by the Group’s con­ti­nuous growth.

Klasmann-Deilmann has been extrac­ting and pro­ces­sing raw peat in the Ems­land regi­on for more than a cen­tu­ry. It was just over 50 years ago that pro­duc­tion of gro­wing media and pot­ting soils began here; this remains the core busi­ness of the inter­na­tio­nal­ly ope­ra­ting group. And the com­pa­ny has been head­quar­te­red at Groß Hese­pe right from the beginning.

Klasmann-Deilmann is now plan­ning the con­struc­tion of a new admi­nis­tra­ti­ve buil­ding at Georg-Klasmann-Stra­ße. The ground-brea­king cere­mo­ny is sche­du­led for this sum­mer, with pre­pa­ra­to­ry work having begun in Febru­a­ry. The buil­ding is due to be rea­dy for use in the second half of 2017.

Our firm is gro­wing con­ti­nuous­ly,” says Mana­ging Direc­tor Moritz Böcking. “And this means our work­for­ce is gro­wing too, as are the deman­ds in terms of modern admi­nis­tra­ti­on and cor­po­ra­te cul­tu­re. We have long reached the limits of the avail­ab­le space in our exis­ting buil­ding com­plex, and that’s whe­re the new buil­ding comes in!” As well as nume­rous offices, exten­si­ve faci­li­ties for trai­ning – inclu­ding the company’s ‘Aca­de­my’ cour­ses – are plan­ned, along with a can­te­en. Out­side, a new expe­ri­men­tal green­house will open up ent­i­re­ly new pos­si­bi­li­ties for Klasmann-Deilmann’s rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment acti­vi­ties. And regu­lar­ly chan­ging exhi­bi­ti­ons will enab­le visi­tors to find out about the organisation’s histo­ry and future.

This new buil­ding reflects our clear com­mit­ment to Groß Hese­pe and to the Ems­land district,” says Mana­ging Direc­tor Nor­bert Siebels. “Klasmann-Deilmann is the most inno­va­ti­ve and sus­tainab­le com­pa­ny in the indus­try, and one of the most attrac­ti­ve employ­ers in the regi­on. The plan­ned buil­ding will empha­sise this fact. We enjoy being based in Ems­land and will con­ti­nue to mana­ge our world­wi­de ope­ra­ti­ons from here.”
