Communication 4.0 in Mauerstetten
Mayr Antriebstechnik has celebrated the roofing ceremony for its new Communications Centre "mayr.com” in Mauerstetten.
3,100 cubic metres of concrete, 400 tonnes of construction steel, 3,540 square metres of useful building area and a 50 metre-long tunnel as the connection to the existing company building – the shell construction of the new Communications Centre by Mayr power transmission in Mauerstetten has been completed. This also makes the impressive extent of the modern, architecturally-challenging round building complex palpable.
It is already clear that this is going to be a special construction. In future, a generously-sized reception and conference area will be located here, as well as additional office space. In this way, mayr.com is to become the new, representative centre of the company for communications, customer support as well as training and further training, which will radiate far beyond Mauerstetten. Conferences, seminars and cultural events are to be held here.
mayr.com – Communications with perspective
The name of the new Communications Centre "mayr.com" creates a direct reference to the brand or the company Mayr, and the abbreviation ".com” (which stands for "communication”) describes the core function of the building. At the same time, the name networks the different media via the Internet address of the same name. Networking is also the keyword for the challenges of the Industry 4.0.
This concerns the networking of products, machines, processes – and also of people. "Today, communications are becoming increasingly important to us”, explains Ferdinand Mayr, a member of the Management.
"This new building also represents this fact. Here, for example, we will in future communicate with customers and partners, trainees, students and also our own employees. Further training is an investment in the future when one considers the rapidly changing requirements and markets. With our new Communications Centre, we can secure our competitiveness and strengthen our competence at the Mauerstetten Headquarters. We are equipping ourselves for the future”. The mayr.com is to be completed during this year, so that staff can move into it in the summer.
