Stoll, the new business unit of the Karl Mayer Group, will be moving with its premises from the site at Stollweg in Reutlingen to the Reutlingen-Betzingen industrial estate, where it will continue its activities under the new owner.
Already in 2004, Stoll relocated its production to the location in the Mark West industrial area. During two project stages, a development center is first being built, and a customer center will follow, in order to accommodate other business units.
Construction of the development center officially started on July 26th, 2019. The building with bright and modern offices and meeting rooms for roughly 70 employees is expected to be completed by this autumn.
July 29th saw the opening of the second project stage, with the aim to construct a customer center by autumn 2021. The symbolic groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Daniel Hebisch, shareholder and member of the Executive Board of isin+co. GmbH & Co. KG; Cemal Isin, Managing Partner of isin+co.; Uli Kälber, Managing Director of Rommel SF-Bau GmbH & Co. KG; as well as the following gentlemen from Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH: Andreas Schellhammer, President of the Stoll Business Unit; Erhard Vöhringer, Senior Sales/Service Manager; Jörg Wilhelm, Senior Operations Manager; and Frank Wittel, Vice Chairman of the Works Council.
The project is carried out by Rommel SF-Bau as general contractor. The architects come from isin+co., which designed a functional building complex that will house the reception, offices for a workforce of about 100 persons and conference rooms. An associated industrial building will also provide enough space for showrooms, machine floor areas, project rooms and for the company’s own training center. The usable floor space covers approx. 5,350 square meters.
With its construction project and relocation, Stoll makes important decisions for the future. By combining development, production and administration at a single location, it is possible to ensure shorter distances, leaner processes and faster innovations. In this way, the Stoll technology that has been successful for more than 145 years, will be leading into a new age.
