New Investment in the Future:

Medical Technology Specialist PTW Doubles Its Area

PTW-Freiburg acquired the developed properties in Lörracher Strasse 9 as well as in Unterwerkstrasse 3 and 3a of the Haufe Group in January 2018. The two contiguous areas adjacent to PTW's headquarters in Freiburg double the company's premises to approx. 20,000 m2.

Following the substantial expansion of production capacity with a new production site in Umkirch in 2016, this is the next strategic investment by PTW. The existing premises had become too small, especially in production, which made the expansion necessary. With the acquisition of the areas, PTW has more than 160 office workplaces as well as approximately 3,000 m2 of storage and production area additionally available, so that sufficient space is ensured for the company headquarters in the long term. "We have continuously expanded the location in the past. This renewed investment is a consistent continuation of our strategy, and we consider it the basis for innovation and further growth," said
Dr. Christian Pychlau, Managing Partner of PTW. "We will continue to develop and manufacture our high-tech dosimetry solutions for the global market at our headquarters in South Baden in the future." PTW's high-precision measuring technology for dosimetry is used around the globe by clinical radiation experts in diagnostic radiology and medical physics.

Use of the new PTW areas

The shipping and picking departments will move into the new buildings in the short term. This will significantly improve the logistics situation for PTW. There is a large storage area in the basement of the building in Lörracher Strasse 9, which is connected to a loading ramp with a freight elevator where shipping in a covered area is available. In addition, this will considerably relieve the parking situation for PTW employees. There are also plans to accommodate the 60 employees of the research and development department in the new area, who currently are working in a building at some distance from the headquarters. The remaining unused areas will initially be sublet.

The Haufe Akademie, a company of the Haufe Group, previously on the site is moving to its company headquarters in the Freiburg Haid industrial park. An extension building with a work area of 16,000 m² provides space for all Haufe Group employees at its Freiburg site.
