After twelve years in Herne, SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH took only three days to move to the new headquarters in Gelsenkirchen. Reason for the relocation is an increased demand for office space due to the company’s continued growth. “When we came to Herne with a staff of about 30 people back in 2002, some of our offices even remained empty”, says Wolfgang Jung, Managing Director of SCHADE Lagertechnik. However, that has changed over the years. “Our former premises were simply too small for today’s staff of 70.” Since there was no possibility of spatial expansion, the company had to look around for a new residence (Fig.). Its ample size leaves sufficient potential for continued further growth.
