The new site is intended to be a hub for developing new technologies and products. It spans 8,082 m² of land and will accommodate 13,700 m² of office and lab space. The hub will create many skilled jobs, with at least 500 employees developing and conducting research there in future.

“Despite having rented additional space for and at our current Design Center Garching near Munich, we still need more room. We therefore decided to build a new facility and consolidate our development expertise in Freiham,” explains Oliver Konz, CEO Würth Elektronik eiSos. Thomas Schrott, also CEO Würth Elektronik eiSos, adds: “With the HIC we will be expanding our activities in the Munich metropolitan area and creating a global R&D center and highly attractive workplace for electronics specialists from different countries and cultures who want to actively shape future technologies.”
