Hamburg, 01. October 2019 - Garz & Fricke GmbH continues to expand: From 21.10.2019 the business operations of the HMI and Panel PC specialist will be transferred to the new headquarters in Schlachthofstraße 20 in Hamburg-Harburg. The new company headquarters comprises service and production areas as well as offices with a total size of 8,000 m2 including new laboratory areas. The newly built factory with a clear material flow structure is adaptable so that in the future it will be possible to react flexibly to new customer orders including high production quantities. The horizontal arrangement of the production areas enables Face2Face communication within production.
The new company headquarters near the Hamburg-Harburg railway station provides for an open office concept in addition to larger laboratory and production areas. The goal is the user-friendly design of all workstations and the shortening of working distances. This not only improves the transparency of processes within the company, but also significantly reduces previous communication channels. The entire relocation process will be carried out in several stages. By the beginning of November, all employees of the previous Garz & Fricke locations in Hamburg and Seevetal will also move. By merging the locations in Hamburg-Harburg, Garz & Fricke now has modern offices and attractive ancillary space. The company's staff and visitors will benefit from the excellent proximity to public transport and the Technical University of Hamburg, with which the electronics specialist works in the field of recruiting.
"We are not only pleased about the spatial expansion, but that the move will also enable us to have even more flexible production processes in the future," explains Matthias Fricke, founder and managing director of Garz & Fricke GmbH. "Considering that our first office 27 years ago only had a production area of 86 m2 and that we have been able to steadily push ahead our growth over the last few years, this is now another milestone in our company history. The new company headquarters therefore offers sufficient space for future expansion, which we continue to strive for," says Fricke.
