|Time capsule is readied fro burial!|
To mark the opening of the new facility, a HBM time capsule was buried at a traditional foundation stone laying ceremony, which was attended by local dignitaries, HBM employees and executive leadership. Containing a HBM load cell, daily newspaper and a HBM company brochure, the capsule was lowered into the ground by the Mayor of Darmstadt, Jochen Partsch, to celebrate the launch of the building.
Emphasising its commitment towards its headquarters in Darmstadt and setting the course for future growth, Karl-Heinz Pohlmann, Vice President Supply Chain at HBM explained the reasons behind the new investment. "By creating 6,000 square meters of extra space for the production of heavy-duty and torque sensors, we will be able to create the prerequisites for efficient logistics and modern office space with close links to production.
"Situated in the City of Science, home of many scientific institutions, universities and high-technology companies, the new HBM Production and Logistics Centre in Darmstadt, which employs over 750 members of staff, is also connected to a number of major roads, which means that parts can be quickly and expediently distributed."
