Opening of the new FRICKE Campus

The FRICKE Group celebrates the opening of the new main building in Heeslingen 10.10.2019

On 10 October, the FRICKE Group officially opened its new main building in Heeslingen, the FRICKE Campus, with numerous guests from the agricultural machinery industry and politics, customers and suppliers as well as various representatives from the region and the companies involved in the construction. Exciting lectures, tours of the new building and culinary delights during stimulating discussions made the evening a complete success.

The new FRICKE Campus in Heeslingen stands for the strong regional roots of the FRICKE Group. At the same time, it symbolises the company's continuous orientation towards the future as a globally and digitally operating group of companies. The new main building combines generous office space, variable event areas and a modern bistro. Thus, with the campus in Heeslingen, a new place for creative cooperation and open communication was created.

Growth in the region

The FRICKE Group provides a total of 1,536 jobs in the Elbe-Weser Triangle alone. The majority of the employees from this region work at the headquarters in Heeslingen. With the new FRICKE Campus, 120 additional office workplaces have been created which, thanks to their open and modern design, enable flexible teamwork.

The modern bistro as the heart of the new main building is also dedicated to employee satisfaction. For the first time in the company's history, the group of companies is offering employee catering and at the same time providing a central communication location for all employees.

The growth of the location is unchecked. In September 2019, further construction work began on the expansion of the GRANIT logistics centre in Heeslingen. "In this way, the FRICKE Group is also clearly committed to the region for the future," says Hans-Peter Fricke, Managing Director of the FRICKE Group.

Tense insights and an interesting exchange

Hans-Peter Fricke opened the evening with a look at the development and future of the company as well as the challenges facing the FRICKE Group in the area of conflict between climate change, modern agriculture and digitalisation. Afterwards, Kirsten Fricke and Niels Günster, who are responsible for the construction project at the Fricke Group, presented the FRICKE Campus in more detail.

Marco Mohrmann, CDU member of the Lower Saxony state parliament, praised the role of the FRICKE Group in the region. For him, the company is one of the most important medium-sized companies and employers in the Rotenburg district.
Another highlight of the evening followed with a lecture by Dagur Sigurdsson, former coach of the German national team and national handball coach in Japan for two years, who presented his philosophy of success and once again emphasised the topic of cohesion and the importance of mentality in the team.
