Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG is planning to reorganize and expand its headquarters and main production plant in Wennebostel (Wedemark), Germany.

"Sennheiser has grown dramatically in recent years," explains Volker Bartels, president, manufacturing and logistics, and speaker of the executive committee at Sennheiser electronic. "Today, we are one of the leading audio brands worldwide. This reorganization will allow us to further expand the concept of a modern corporate headquarters and to give a fitting reflection of the Sennheiser brand. The planned extension will ensure that the various corporate functions can work more closely together and can communicate faster and more effectively."

The first project in the expansion program is construction of a new factory building that will take over production from the Burgdorf plant about 18 miles away. The Burgdorf site will be closed, but according to Bartels, "none of the 183 jobs will be lost. The reorganization will make the workflow faster and more efficient enabling us to act more flexibly in a rapidly developing world market."

Sennheiser's headquarters in Wennebostel, where the company was founded in 1945, has grown continuously. The new modern production facility will be constructed adjacent to the company's Class-100 clean room. "The workplaces and production lines are arranged and designed according to the most modern criteria," says Bartels. Planning for the new building and reorganization has begun, and the relocation of the Burgdorf site is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2009.
