Back in April 2022 the ground-breaking ceremony marked the start of Altenburg’s new factory, only about 1 km away from the current location that is full of tradition and history.
The new factory will have a total area of approx. 20,500 m² and offers sufficient space for the various production areas as well as offices and social areas.
In addition, a DGNB Platinum certification is planned – a German standard which covers a sustainable construction and a comprehensive package of measures for ecological and social sustainability. This includes, for example, the preparation of a photovoltaic system, the use of a water cistern and e-charging stations for employees cars. After completion of the construction, the outdoor areas are generously landscaped so that employees and animals can feel comfortable.
“With Panattoni, we have an experienced project developer at our side that competently planned and implemented our production-related requirements for building development and thus creates a modern workplace for our employees. The new building allows us to continue to grow and create new jobs without having to give up our traditional location.” – Jürgen Gehr, Vice President Publishing CEE at Cartamundi and MD of Spielkartenfabrik Altenburg GmbH (Cartamundi Solutions)
Completion is scheduled for Q1 2023, so that the relocation of machines and offices can begin immediately afterwards.
