SMS group is building central complex of facilities with 1,500 modern workplaces in Monchengladbach.Monchengladbach will be home to a new technology, service and digitalization center built on the SMS premises and providing 1,500 modern workplaces. As from 2023, the competences of five locations in the region will be brought together at this central location in the Rhineland. Today, the company already has over 1,200 employees in Monchengladbach. With its innovative Campus, SMS will be able to exploit the full catalyst effect from the growth areas of service and digitalization to expand its pioneering role as a technology provider. With the start of the construction work for the new Campus, SMS is setting a new milestone just ahead of the company's 150th anniversary.

The SMS Campus will cover a gross surface area of around 44,000 square meters and consist of five module buildings. The core of the complex will be a covered atrium serving as a meeting and communication area. A membrane-type roof with a diameter of 82 meters will connect all buildings to create a unique campus. An adjoining staff car park will offer sufficient parking space for cars, motor cycles, and bicycles. It will be equipped with charging stations for electric cars and bicycles. Given the future investments in the infrastructure of the immediate neighborhood by the city of Monchengladbach, the whole district will be upgraded and the new Campus will become well connected with the local public transport system.

At the groundbreaking ceremony, one could already get an impression of the dimensions of the future Campus from the ring-shaped area of removed ground. In the coming months, around 70,000 cubic meters of soil will be removed, with shell construction work for the five module buildings due to start in the spring of 2021. The shell construction will be completed as early as by the summer of 2022. The Campus will be ready for occupancy in mid/end-2023.
