Only 500 metres from the present site, the new head office of Spheros GmbH is currently being built in a prominent position in Gilching’s ASTO Park, on Friedsrichshafener Straße and the access road to Oberpfaffenhofen airfield, close to the autobahn on-ramp. The new building with almost 4,600 square metres of floor space will accommodate 110 workstations in administration, sales, research and development. It will also include an integrated bus hall and climate chamber for test purposes. The new building is scheduled for completed and occupation in the first quarter of 2015.
The ground-breaking ceremony was held on Friday, 21 February. Numerous guests from politics, administration and business came to demonstrate their active support: (from left) Franz Foth, COO of Spheros GmbH, Thaddea Selby-Lowndes, Member of the Landtag Ute Eiling-Hütig, Mayor Manfred Walter, ASTO Park Manager Dr Bernd Schulte-Middelich, Architect Victor Tomescu, Ekkehardt Fabian, District Administrator Karl Roth and Gerald Ruppert.
