HELLA to expand company HQ

Published:  31 October, 2017

HELLA has invested in its Lippstadt base with a new visitor, administrative and exhibition centre under construction next door to the company’s historic headquarters that will transform it into a high-tech location. At the same time, an urban planning competition is scheduled for the future use of the former Steinstrasse company premises.

"The importance of our Lippstadt headquarters as a control centre for the global HELLA network and its respective responsibilities will increase” says HELLA CEO Dr. Rolf Breidenbach, “so we must also create the space for this to happen."

With a total area of 7,000 square metres, the new four storey-building will not only create workspace for 300 employees, but will also feature conference and training rooms, as well as an exhibition centre for customers and visitors.

Construction is scheduled to start in the summer of 2018, with an anticipated opening expected for mid-2019.
