To ensure that its infrastructure keeps pace with its plans for growth, Recaro Aircraft Seating has announced that is planning a major expansion of its headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany. The company has acquired land and buildings valued in the “multi-millions” of Euros, and intends to invest a similar amount in new buildings and renovations over the coming years as part of its “space2grow” expansion project.
The buildings are certainly attractive, the design being the winner of nationwide architectural competition set by Recaro. Stuttgart-based architects MDM came up with the favored design, and the first phase of construction is scheduled to begin in early 2019. The complex will include administration areas, factory halls, a development and testing center (including a fire- testing laboratory), a customer service area, a new canteen, as well as more car parking. It is estimated that for future events and international meetings, there is space to accommodate up to 600 guests.
