Chetra continues to grow
Since the summer of 2012 we have been operating from our new HQ in Heimstetten near Munich. Here we have 60% more space for R&D, design, production and sales, with the possibility of further expansion. In addition the new design of our production facilities has enabled the optimisation of our manufacturing processes.
This new location also offers excellent transport links, because it is only 1.5 km from the Munich East motorway junction (A99/ A94) and is close to an S-Bahn station (Line S2).
In addition to energy efficiency the focus of our planning was on creating open buildings with as much natural light as possible for the purpose of facilitating communication and enjoyable working conditions.
For the building methods employed our general contractor was awarded Germany's Climate Protection Prize. Wherever possible renewable raw materials were used, with wood as the basic material and cellulose and cork for insulation. The results are healthy ambient conditions, both in the offices and in the production area. In addition energy-efficient construction, the use of heat pumps and a solar installation mean that energy consumption is low and sustainable.
