The Saxon environmental technology company takes new building solemnly into operation
The company DAS Environmental Expert GmbH is growing continuously and expands its production facilities at its headquarters in Dresden Goppeln. The Saxon environmental technology company invested for that reason around 1.2 million euros in a new building which expands the current production space by 400 square meters and creates space for the electronic assembly of the family-run technology company. „When we moved to our new corporate premises on Goppelner Street 44, our production area was running at only 50 percent. Today we need to extend our facilities since our 4000 square meters are packed“, says company founder Dr. Horst Reichardt proudly. „By moving the electronic assembly from the production hall into the new building, we create a quieter work environment. This is one of many actions in the field of quality assurance.”
Global presence and growth
The new building is an expression for the economic development of the company which exports and supports customers worldwide. The Saxon environmental technology specialist supplies the majority of its products in foreign countries and thus generated sales of over 45 million euros in 2015. The company has offices in Taiwan, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Argentina and the US.
New building-expansion at record speed
In less than 12 months a two-story building in the South-East of Dresden came into existence thanks to the professional support of the company NBL GmbH Bau Lockwitzgrund, led by Matthias Klemm. As of mid-march a team of 18 employees will work there on the core of the DAS system technology. The new building can accommodate around 30 electronic and precision mechanic workbenches. In addition, the company is planning two new hires for the electronic assembly in the coming months. Spacious offices arise upstairs as well as three modular expandable meeting rooms.
Arts and construction
The production expansion was used to embellish the interior of the production hall. A large-scale illustration of Lizzy, the mascot of DAS Environmental Expert Gmbh, was created in cooperation with the graffiti artist Caparso from Dresden. Lizzy is a chameleon that acquires a taste especially for „the smallest things“. The slogan „Even tiny problems need attention“ alludes to the fine dust particles that are being generated as waste products during the processes in the semiconductor and photovoltaic industry. DAS has specialized with its environmental technology on their disposal.
