The new HQ of the company is in the city’s district of Deutz, and will see more than 1,000 employees move to their new offices.
"We have found an ideal location for Lanxess in Cologne, and are really looking forward to moving to our new home city," said Axel C. Heitmann, chairman of the Board of Management. “The high cost-efficiency of the new company Headquarters and the benefits of Cologne as a location will assist us in our course of growth.”
“The building is currently being completely modernized. It will then become one of the most energy-efficient buildings in Germany,” he added. The new company Headquarters will bring almost all management functions under one roof. The 22-storey office building has a leased area of around 38,000 square meters.
