The new building with 1500 m2, situated on the existing site, houses offices and meeting rooms for the 80 or so employees in Sandton, as well as a spacious reception area, training rooms and a 100-seat auditorium – designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and to further strengthen customer relationships. A direct link to the existing building ensures smooth operation. This original building, which opened in 1987, has been converted into an expanded logistics and service center including warehouse, staging area, workshops and a flow calibration center. In total the two buildings in Sandton boast 3700 m2 of floor space.

Endress+Hauser invested 43 million ZAR (3.3 million €) in the expansion. South Africa is an important gateway to the African continent for Endress+Hauser.

In order to optimally manage its customers, the company maintains offices in four cities around the country in addition to its headquarters in Sandton.
