fiftyONE: from concept to design

Pooling knowledge, promoting communication, enabling transparency. fiftyONE, Heraeus' new Innovation Center, offers an environment for a new, agile and dynamic way of working.

As a technology company, Heraeus has developed continuously for more than 165 years. So have its structures and technologies. Since then, innovative strength has been the success factor and basis of the family business. But Heraeus must also adapt to a dynamic working environment if it is to be sustainably successful.

The company entered the industry in 1851. At that time, developments often took place through communicative exchange and knowledge sharing. Developers have encouraged innovation by trying out, rejecting or jointly testing new methods for their time. Over the years, structures and organizations have grown and more and more pools of knowledge have emerged.

With fiftyONE, Heraeus is going back to its roots and promoting cross-divisional collaboration. Regardless of their organizational affiliation, developers are working together on innovative projects here.

The planning of the new building and its premises began as early as 2014, with transparency, openness, exchange, and plenty of opportunities to meet and communicate - these were Heraeus' core requirements for the architects. You can see the results in the following picture gallery..
