The New PI Technology Center in Karlsruhe

Turning Ideas into Reality

The new Technology Center has been completed. After a building phase of just about one year, the developer groups already moved into the new building in January, 2017. Up until then, they were accommodated in various different parts of the existing buildings. "We are active in a high-tech sector and are investing more than ten percent of our turnover in development. The investment is necessary to maintain and expand our position on the world market for precision positioning", explains Dr. Spanner.

The new building complex provides space not only for offices but also for application labs, metrology labs, and cleanrooms for vacuum or cryogenic chambers. At the heart of the Technology Center is an auditorium which will be used for events and trainings.

PI employs around 440 people at its headquarters in Karlsruhe and invested almost 13 million Euros in the building of the Technology Center.
