Goodman, the global property group that owns, develops and manages logistics space and mdexx group, together with invited guests including Frank Seidel, Deputy Mayor of Weyhe, today celebrated the topping out ceremony for mdexx’s new company headquarters in Weyhe, south of Bremen. The new mdexx facility, which comprises a production centre and office building, is being developed by Goodman and after only four months, the structural work has already been completed.
“Despite the harsh winter, we have met our planning targets. The fact that we are celebrating the topping out after a construction period of only four months is a great success, and means that the relocation date for mdexx to move into its new company headquarters is fast approaching,” said Andreas Fleischer, Goodman Regional Director for Germany.
The 20,000 sqm property is tailored to mdexx’s operational needs. The facility will allow mdexx to maximise the production of transformers and fans as well as benefit its logistics and administration processes. In line with Goodman’s commitment to sustainability, the facility will be certified by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
“The development of our new company headquarters will further improve our competitiveness,” said mdexx Chief Executive Jan Reinecke. “Our employees are watching the construction progress via a webcam and looking forward to the new production centre being operational.” After the handover of the finished property in August 2013, mdexx will complete the move from its present building in Bremen in October 2013.
“With Goodman and mdexx, the community of Weyhe has achieved one of the biggest business relocations in recent years. We are also pleased to have been able to keep so many jobs and the considerable technical know-how of mdexx within the region. We are confident that both companies have made the right choice with Weyhe,” emphasised Frank Seidel, Deputy Mayor of Weyhe.
