VGP Park Laatzen is located on a site of around 28 hectares and will offer 112,000 m² of leasing space for commercial, production and logistics companies.

In May of this year, the first contract was signed with KraussMaffei Berstorff, a Hanover-based mechanical engineering company. "We are delighted to have paved the way for further growth with this new facility and to be able to continue to rely on innovation and quality - made in Germany," says Matthias Sieverding, President of the Extrusion Technology Segment of the KraussMaffei Group."We have deliberately chosen the Hanover area as our location in order to be able to shape the future together with our experienced employees," Sieverding adds. KraussMaffei Berstorff is planning for the future with the building of a new plant for extrusion technology. By the end of 2022, work on the production hall and office complex should be completed. The facility, equipped with state-of-the-art technical, production and office facilities, is designed for up to 750 employees and thus offers sufficient space for future growth.

The VGP Group, a leading European provider of high-quality logistics and commercial real estate, is developing a new building in Giessen/Buseck.

In December 2018, the company acquired a land plot of approx. 36,500 sqm on Kasseler Strasse in Buseck. In March of this year, the first lease agreement was signed with logistics service provider Strauß LogPack. In addition to logistic companies, companies from the manufacturing sector are also to move into the building.

With the building expected to open at the beginning of 2020, the VGP Group, which today operates in twelve European countries, will be able to continue its expansion course in Germany.

Sustainability is important to the company; all properties built by VGP meet the requirements for energy-efficient and sustainable construction.

Darius Scheible, Managing Director of the Düsseldorf-based German subsidiary VGP Industriebau GmbH, believes in the location: "Together with the city administration, we want to help shape the economic development of the Buseck community through the new VGP building". Scheible is looking forward to the cooperation with the community. "Close planning based on partnership is indispensable in order to create trust and sustainable added value in the region".

Dirk Haas, Mayor of the municipality of Buseck, welcomes the property developer's project: "Buseck is an attractive industrial location with its central location near the Frankfurt transportation hub. We are delighted to have won VGP as a highly professional and highly reliable partner for the development of the new building. This will further strengthen the economic position of Buseck".
