Laying of the foundation stone for new company headquarters

On Friday, 20th January 2023, TEWS Technologies GmbH celebrated laying the foundation stone for its new company headquarters at Eggerstedter Weg 14 in Pinneberg. A state-of-the-art new company headquarters will be built by the end of the year on the 6,700 m² site of the former Eggerstedt Barracks.

The investment in this project is the next major step in ensuring the successful continuation of the family business, founded in 1973 by Uwe Tews and built up over the following decades with his business partner Peter Zimmermann.

With a building area of 1,700 m², the new company headquarters offers sufficient space to meet the steady growth of recent years and the growing customer requirements. In addition, the location offers the possibility of further expansion in the future.

Efficient new building with sustainable concept

During the planning process, the company placed a particular focus on sustainability and the attractiveness of the new headquarters for its employees. The company building will be constructed in accordance with the energy-saving “Effizienzhaus 40” standard. Heat is generated via geothermal energy, which is supplemented by a photovoltaic system on the roof. The concept is completed by charging columns for e-cars in the parking lot.

Inside the building, state-of-the-art and attractive workplaces will be created, allowing flexible use ranging from classic individual offices to open space and co-working. The central contact point will be a generously designed cafeteria with a roof terrace.

“The investment in the new company headquarters was necessary to meet our steady growth and the requirements of our customers. When planning the new headquarters, we actively involved our entire workforce in the planning process to take our team’s ideas into account in the best possible way. From the very beginning, the issue of sustainability was a central component of our planning. Together with GRS Architekten, we succeeded in designing a carbon-neutral building in terms of its balance sheet.” Peter Zimmermann, Authorized Signatory

Company succession successfully completed

Since 2022, the two sons Jan Zimmermann and Tim Tews have formed the joint management team, which they took over from their fathers as part of the company succession.

“Successfully implementing a company succession is already a real challenge. The fact that we were able to achieve this with with the parallel succession from two families is a real speciality. We are very proud of the fact that we are able to ensure the long-term preservation of the company and want to continue to write the success story together with our employees in the decades to come.” – Jan Zimmermann, General Manager

Creation of attractive jobs in the region

The construction of the new company headquarters and further expansion plans of TEWS Technologies GmbH create new attractive jobs in the region. For many years, the company has repeatedly offered young students the opportunity to take their first steps in professional working life with practice-oriented final theses. However, in addition to junior staff in the development department, the company is also looking for further reinforcement of the team in various other positions, such as order processing or quality management.

“If you want to work in an internationally active company with exciting products but still experience the advantages of a family culture of a small company, we are the right place for you. The normal end user doesn’t know our company and our products, but that our work contributes to some developments that can fundamentally improve our lives is one of our biggest motivating factors.” Tim Tews, General Manager
