Years of steady growth and a consistently high level of orders mean that Funkwerk Systems GmbH is starting to run out of space at its headquarters in Kölleda. This was why a groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for two new buildings. One is an additional production facility covering more than 1,000 square metres, and the other is an administrative building containing offices and communal space. In 1992, as Funkwerk managing director Uwe Lehmann recalls, Hans Hörmann personally performed the groundbreaking ceremony for the existing buildings in Kölleda. Almost 30 years later, his daughter Anna Hörmann picked up a spade to represent the Hörmann family.
