With the groundbreaking ceremony, the HWS Gruppe signals a quantum leap on the way to a unified company headquarters in Neustadt/Aisch
Neustadt an der Aisch, 25.07.2022 – The HWS Gruppe, a medium-sized provider of IT services and software development, symbolically heralded the construction of its new company building in the Kleinerlbach industrial park in Neustadt with a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday. From around 2024, the new central headquarters will unite the approximately 160 employees of the HWS Gruppe under one roof, who are currently spread across four locations within the district town. The future-oriented building will be designed as a green building and is aligned with the growth plans of the group of companies.
“In the heart a Neustadt citicen”
Almost exactly 22 years after the founding of HWS Informationssysteme GmbH, Bernd Scheurer, founder, and CEO of the HWS Gruppe, symbolically heralded the construction of a new company building in the Kleinerlbach industrial park in Neustadt. Although not a native of Neustadt himself, he is “a Neustadt resident at heart”, which is why his adopted home of Neustadt/Aisch should also remain the headquarters of the group of companies.
There had long been plans for a central company headquarters in Neustadt/Aisch, but there was a lack of suitable space in the district town. Together with the mayor and the city council, Scheurer worked out a solution to keep Neustadt as the company headquarters.
Growth- and employee-centered building design
By 2024, approximately 2,000 m² of office space is to be created on the site, distributed across three interconnected buildings. These will provide space for around 250 workplaces, enabling the building to keep pace with the planned growth of the corporate group. In addition, the site also offers opportunities for further expansion of the office buildings.
The consolidation of the four Neustadt locations into one central building is an important step for the company. The company wants to use the synergy effects gained through the spatial proximity positively for itself and the employees.
Important company for the economic stability of the region
District Administrator Helmut Weiß and Mayor Klaus Meier both equally emphasized the importance of the group of companies for the regional economy. Weiß went on to say that he always sees a groundbreaking ceremony as a positive sign. After all, the commitment to a new building shows that the company can hold its own in the market. “It takes people with good ideas to keep their finger on the pulse,” Weiß continues. Addressing challenges such as the shortage of skilled workers in a future-oriented manner and as forwarding thinkers. This step therefore also requires a certain amount of courage, from which not only the company but also the entire region benefits, he adds.
Sustainability thanks to the “Green Building” concept
Sustainability plays a particularly important role in the new building, emphasizes planner Walter Beck. Thanks to a photovoltaic system and heat pumps, the company will be largely self-sufficient and energy-neutral.
In addition to the guests Beck, Weiß, Maier, and the investor Susanne Scheurer, numerous employees also took part in the groundbreaking ceremony.
