Grand Opening of the new SCHNEIDER headquarters


Following an extremely short construction time of just 11 months SCHNEIDER opened their new headquarters during a grand opening ceremony on February 17th. The 500 invited guests included politicians, longtime friends of the company, and SCHNEIDER employees and their guests.

In the course of the evening, guests became familiarized with the eventful history of the company and the construction progress of the new facilities. The international SCHNEIDER subsidiaries, a number of close friends, and valued customers contributed to the event with greetings and congratulations, with video clips as well as live on stage. Special tribute was paid to the innovative, technological achievements of the company.  Special thanks were also given to the SCHNEIDER team for the great cooperation and teamwork.

The colorful celebration was rounded off with artistic and musical contributions.

The following Saturday the company opened its doors again for the employees and their families. More than 800 people took the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the new working environment of their beloved ones with special tours of the new facility and demonstrations of the latest technologies of SCHNEIDER. An extensive children's program kept the younger visitors busy.

Built on more than 100.000 square feet of land and equipped with state-of-the art, eco-friendly air conditioning and heating systems, communication and media technology, training facilities, and ergonomically optimized workspaces, the new SCHNEIDER headquarters live up to the company’s slogan, “Fascination for Innovation.”  This allows for a  great working atmosphere for SCHNEIDER employees, enabling them to provide excellent service to the company's customers.
