Garbe Industrial Real Estate realises new company headquarters for “tesa nie wieder bohren GmbH” in Hanau
Hamburg/Hanau, 7 May 2020 – Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH and Bremer Projektentwicklung GmbH (Bremer project development) have begun construction of a state-of-the-art logistics centre in the Hanau Technology Park. Following extensive revitalization, the new headquarters for “tesa nie wieder bohren GmbH” will be built there by the end of 2020 with a total area of around 8,700 square meters.
A good year ago, Garbe Industrial Real Estate and the Bremer Projektentwicklung had acquired the approx. 35,000 square meter property in the Hanau Technology Park as a joint venture. Fuel elements for nuclear power plants were produced on the site until the end of the 1980s. In order to make the fallow land usable for logistic and commercial purposes, among other things, a remaining bunker had to be demolished. This involved the use of 18 tons of explosives and left 90,000 tonnes of debris, which was recycled on site and reused as a base layer. “Our many years of experience in the revitalisation and development of derelict industrial sites is of particular benefit to us in this project,” says Bernd Jungholt, managing director of Bremer Projektentwicklung GmbH.
“The demolition of the old bunker with its two-meter-thick concrete walls was very complex and not an easy time for the surrounding companies either. Now, finally, another ‘symbol’ of Hanau’s history of fuel elements is a thing of the past,” says Mayor Claus Kaminsky.
“We are pleased to have won ‘tesa nie wieder bohren GmbH’ as a long-term tenant and to realise the new company headquarters,” emphasises Jan Dietrich Hempel, Managing Director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH. The company, with its approximately 100 employees, will produce adapters on a hall area of about 7,500 square metres, which in combination with a high-performance adhesive represent the core element of the patented “„nie wieder bohren. professional adhesive technology”. In addition, the company will store bathroom accessories tailored to its fastening solution on site, so that orders can be assembled directly and sent to retailers, tradesmen, industry and contract construction. “Due to continuous growth, our previous location in Hanau has become too small. By settling in the Technology Park, the company headquarters in Hanau can be retained,” says Managing Director Thorsten Helgers. With the help of the Hanau Economic Development Agency, the company came into contact with Garbe and Bremer at an early stage. “The property will be tailored to the needs of our work processes and operational procedures.”
The fact that “tesa nie wieder bohren” will stay in the city of Hanau is also good news for Mayor Claus Kaminsky: “I see an enormous potential for development. This is why the city and the Economic Development Agency have supported the company in its search for a new location to the best of their ability.”
