Now that construction of the company’s new Reception Building is complete, Roland Busch, President and CEO of Siemens AG and Markus Söder, Minister-President of the German State of Bavaria, have visited the building to mark the grand opening of the Siemens Campus Erlangen.

As an open section of town on a total of 540,000 sqm in the city of Erlangen, Germany, the campus stands for innovative, sustainable construction and for forming links between new working environments and urban life as well as between digitalisation and research.

In addition to the Reception Building, which also accommodates offices for the Siemens Managing Board, the new Laboratory Building was also opened as a central research hub. Now that these buildings have been opened, some 17,000 employees of Siemens and of Siemens Energy will be working on the campus. It is among Siemens’ all-time largest real estate projects worldwide.

“Campus Erlangen will be a catalyst for the entire metropolitan region. At our research laboratory, we’re collaborating with partners on solutions for the energy transition,” said CEO Roland Busch. “In this way, we’re supporting our customers on their journey to a more sustainable future. Siemens is and will remain, anchored in this region and beyond. We’re investing heavily in our infrastructure and in the people who work for our company.”

Over the past 10 years, Siemens has invested about €1.5 billion in real estate projects in Bavaria – with around €1.2 billion of that sum invested in the Nuremberg metropolitan region.
