“Campus Erlangen will be a catalyst for the entire metropolitan region. At our research laboratory, we’re collaborating with partners on solutions for the energy transition. In this way, we’re supporting our customers on their journey to a more sustainable future,” said CEO Roland Busch. “Siemens is, and will remain, anchored in this region and beyond. We’re investing heavily in our infrastructure and in the people who work for our company.”
“Siemens City Erlangen is the new star of the metropolitan region. The world's largest Siemens location is in Erlangen. The new Siemens Campus offers space for 20,000 employees, corresponds to an area of 76 football pitches, is CO2-neutral, sustainable and ecological. This is how you shape the future today: a central location for innovations, ideas and jobs. Especially in the current transformation processes, the future of the country's economy and prosperity lies with companies like Siemens.”
“A new milestone has been reached. Now the ‘welcome to the new Siemens Campus’ message has become official. The new Reception Building symbolizes the gateway to a lively, sustainable and modern section of the city, where working, having a home and participating in urban life come together in an ideal way – a section of the city that stands for the future viability, for the capacity to innovate and for the economic strength that our city and region have to offer,” said Florian Janik, Mayor of Erlangen.
"Our goal was to create a green, lively Siemens Campus that meshes with the city and the surrounding landscape. We have therefore preserved the valuable tree population and densified it along a central green axis. The result is a network of greened paths and squares that order the buildings and public, communicative street spaces," said Jürgen Engel, architect and owner of the architectural firm KSP Engel.
In fiscal 2022, which ended on September 30, 2022, the Siemens Group generated revenue of €72.0 billion and net income of €4.4 billion. As of September 30, 2022, the company had around 311,000 employees worldwide. Further information is available on the Internet at www.siemens.com.
