Isra Vision has broken ground on its new headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany.

As part of the company’s succession planning following Founder and CEO Enis Ersü’s retirement, it entered into a strategic partnership with the Swedish industrial group Atlas Copco, forming the heart of the new Machine Vision Solutions division.

The new headquarters is located on a property measuring around 15,000 square meters in the city’s “Knell” development district with its historic water tower at Frankfurter Straße.

Set to be constructed in two stages, it will consist of three connected buildings housing offices and development laboratories, as well as demonstration and assembly halls.

The project was designed by the local architecture firm fs Architekten and will give Isra Vision the space it needs for future development and a constantly growing workforce.

Designed to the latest energy standards, the building will grow over time and will offer space for around 960 employees once fully constructed.

Isra Vision’s new Chairman of the Executive Management Team, Tomas Lundin, was joined for the ceremony by company founder Enis Ersü, Chief Financial Officer Martin Heinrich and Mayor of Darmstadt Jochen Partsch.

The completion of the first construction section and moving in to the new headquarters are planned for the turn of the year 2022/2023.
