Groundbreaking Ceremony for New SERAPID Group Headquarters
By: SERAPID Group
In the presence of local representatives, Guillaume Davies (COO) and Emeric Labesse (CEO), managing directors of SERAPID group since 2017, spoke out in praise of the new France location. "This new building will enable our company to continue its development and the opening of new markets, especially in the field of special elevators with the new brand identity SERAPID Lift Systems," said the management.
The new building was made necessary by the high capacity utilization at the two existing sites in Rouxmesnil-Bouteilles and Londinières in France. By bringing all employees together at a central location, the new building aims to strengthen the team spirit, facilitate cooperation between the various departments, and enable all processes to be optimized.
The groundbreaking ceremony and the foundation stone's laying were preceded by extensive planning, done in close cooperation with the architectural office A2B, based in Offranville.
In total, a 5,700 m² property will be created in the Eurochannel II zone, which will contain 4,500 m² of production area and 1,200 m² of office space, thus allowing the administrative areas to grow by 30% and the production areas by 15%. A 350 m² showroom is also planned, including a 1:1 scale car elevator that can be used as a meeting room. The currently scheduled construction time is about one year and should be completed in October / November 2021. http://www.serapid.com
