Biotechnology in Heidelberg – A Growth Industry

Medical equipment manufacturer Heidelberg Engineering moves into the Heidelberg Bahnstadt campus

The manufacturer of diagnostic ophthalmic imaging solutions, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is taking up residence in the state-of-the-art SkyLabs at the Heidelberg Bahnstadt campus. The company’s previous headquarters in Tiergartenstraße 15 had become too small to accommodate the 200 employees in Heidelberg.

With a total area of more than 7,700 square metres, the new space is 60 per cent larger than what Heidelberg Engineering had until now. The need for bigger premises reflects the development of the company in recent years: Since the beginning of 2014, the number of employees at Heidelberg Engineering’s main location, Heidelberg, has surged by more than 40 per cent.  Growth has been particularly strong in research and development in the so-called MINT (mathematics, IT, natural sciences and technology) specialist areas.  

“The proximity to science and research plays a decisive role for our company, which is constantly growing.  That’s why Heidelberg is an ideal location for us”, the Managing Director of Heidelberg Engineering, Christoph Schoess, commented.

The Operations division had already moved into the new building a year ago. Now all employees in Heidelberg are under one roof again, including the staff of Medical Communications, a provider of imaging management systems, which has been part of Heidelberg Engineering since early 2014.  Heidelberg Engineering employs another 100 people at its development site in Lübeck and its distribution subsidiaries in the US, Great Britain and Australia.

Heidelberg Engineering develops imaging solutions to help ophthalmologists diagnose the most common eye diseases.

Technology Park plans first high-tech space at the Patton Barracks

- Theresia Bauer, Regional Minister for Science, Research and the Arts, visits the Heidelberg Technology Park

- Detailed planning of the construction of the Business Development Centre Organic Electronics is at a crucial stage

- Close cooperation between science, industry and municipality is praised

During a visit to the Heidelberg Technology Park, Regional Minster Theresia Bauer concluded on a positive note:  “Heidelberg’s strength is bringing together fundamental research and commercial enterprise to create significant social and economic value.  It’s impressive how the University, the Heidelberg Technology Park and the leading-edge cluster [Forum Organic Electronics] have once again proved this to be the case.  The Business Development Centre Organic Electronics, which has been awarded a prize by the regional authorities,  is the flagship for this successful cooperation“, the Minister explained.  “Through the Business Development Centre Organic Electronics, we have hooked up with the other side of the value creation chain“, added André Domin, who, as managing director of the Technology Park, was responsible for the entry in the Regio-WIN competition. 

At the new building, the companies that emerge from the leading-edge cluster, along with other small and medium-sized enterprises that promote innovation in the field of printed electronics, will find all the space and infrastructure they need to carry out research, development and prodution.  The aim is for the Business Development Centre to become the nucleus of a high-technology site at the Patton Barracks – as happened 30 years ago in the case of the first Technology Park buildings at the Neuenheimer Feld campus.
