    Bechtle plans IT future hub in Neu-Ulm

    • Commitment to new site for three companies
    • Office space for some 300 employees
    • Construction slated for 2024

    Neckarsulm, 03 February 2023 – Bechtle has announced plans to construct a new home for three of its subsidiaries in Neu-Ulm on the city’s IT campus, close to the University of Applied Sciences Neu-Ulm (HNU), the ratiopharm arena and the Wiley-Mitte sports and leisure park. The City of Neu-Ulm yesterday passed the necessary resolution adopting the development plan, thus securing an excellent site for the next IT future hub for Germany’s largest IT system house.

    Ground is set to be broken in mid-2024 on what will become a highly-modern, seven-storey office building covering approximately 5,000 m² and offering space for some 300 employees. Once completed in 2026, the new site will become home to Bechtle IT System House Ulm, Langenau-based CAD/PLM specialist Solidpro, and the network and IT security specialist Bechtle Network & Security Solutions. With the new hub, Bechtle is creating a modern working environment that fosters creativity and collaboration between the three companies. Bringing multiple subsidiaries under one roof not only has economic advantages, but also allows customers to benefit from the synergies created across disciplines to provide holistic care.

    Spotlight on sustainable growth
    In line with Bechtle’s model of interdisciplinary collaboration, this hub will become part of an axis between new Bechtle sites in Unterschleißheim near Munich, Neu-Ulm, Stuttgart and Ettlingen near Karlsruhe—all practically connected by a high-speed rail line. In addition to the office building, Bechtle is also planning a seven-storey car park with 240 spaces and charging points for electric vehicles to extend the company’s Charge@Work concept to the Neu-Ulm site. As at other locations, Bechtle will be installing solar panels on both the office building and car park to increase its reliance on renewable energy sources.

    As part of the IT campus, Bechtle will be welcoming students from the nearby University of Applied Sciences at its IT future hub to foster collaboration between the two.
