On September 22, VRmagic relocated to the converted military site Turley in Neckarstadt-Ost.
The Mannheim-based technology company now has a total of 4,600 square meters on the converted military site Turley, combining attractive office spaces in a historic building as well as a modern factory and laboratories in a new building. The historic building that housed the Mannheim campus of the University of Maryland until 2005 now accommodates research and development as well as sales and administration. The historical structures of the sandstone building were restored according to the preservation order and supplemented by modern architectural elements. The new production facility made of glass was built on an empty building lot next to the old building and offers modern production conditions. The assembly of the medical simulators can be observed from the street through large windows. ”The renovated historic building and the new production facility made of glass are a good example for turning former military barracks into a place for innovative work”, explains Dr. Markus Schill, managing director of VRmagic.
VRmagic’s constant growth was the reason behind the search for a new headquarters. The main criteria for a new location were that it should be located in Mannheim and that it should offer enough space for a future-proof and an economic usage. “The City of Mannheim supported our plans to find a new headquarters in Mannheim and realize it on the Turley site from the beginning”, explains Norbert Hinckers, managing director of VRmagic. The move to our new premises is another milestone in VRmagic’s history. At the new site, we want to lead the company into a highly promising future.”
