  • New group headquarters on Deutzer Freiheit
  • Move to Cologne in 2013 with more than 1,000 employees

LEVERKUSEN/COLOGNE, GERMANY: The MDAX company, Lanxess will transfer its corporate headquarters from Leverkusen to the former Lufthansa headquarters on Deutzer Freiheit in the second half of 2013. This means that Lanxess will in the future steer its global business from Cologne. Lanxess will rent the building measuring around 100 meter in height.

“We have found an ideal location for Lanxess in Cologne, and are really looking forward to moving to our new home city,” said Axel C Heitmann, Chairman, Board of Management, Lanxess AG, at this year’s annual stockholders’ meeting. Cologne has an unique infrastructure in North Rhine-Westphalia, with good transport connections. It is also a renowned academic and research centre and an enormous attraction for top talent, said the company.

More than 1,000 employees will move to their new offices in the Deutz area of Cologne in 2013. “The building is currently being completely modernized. It will then become one of the most energy-efficient buildings in Germany,” stated Heitmann. The new company headquarters will bring almost all management functions under one roof. The 22-storey office building has a leased area of around 38,000 square meter.
