Yesterday saw the inauguration of the new building, after a construction period of only one year. "We wanted a groundbreaking office building which creates the best possible working conditions for all our people," says Rob Hommersen, managing director of the sales center. "We also stressed that the architecture should reflect openness, sustainability and transparency."

Bricks, glass and plenty of daylight: Endress+Hauser's new building in Naarden, Netherlands.
A high atrium with glass frontage characterizes the new building; a masonry facade lends it elegance. The building has been constructed with eco-friendly materials and meets high standards in terms of energy consumption. Almost 5,000 square meters of floor area accommodate offices, a workshop, a logistics area and a restaurant. If needed, the building can be easily enlarged.

In 1960, a small sales office in theNetherlandswas the first foreign subsidiary of the young Endress+Hauser company. Today, the sales center employs over 130 people. The new building in the small town of Naarden, 20 kilometers south-east of Amsterdam, was erected immediately next door to the previous headquarters.

In theNetherlands, Endress+Hauser cooperates mainly with global customers in key industries such as water & wastewater, food & beverage, oil & gas and chemical. Thanks to the development of the business with service offerings and automation solutions, the Dutch sales center has seen above average growth in the past years.
