MANN+HUMMEL’s new technology centre is generating a lot of excited buzz, with more and more employees having moved in to the building complex on Schwieberdingerstraße in the summer of 2016. And I packed my bags too, because I, my team and some 100 test benches (not forgetting the over 80-employee strong testing department) moved from Ludwigsburg city centre to the new testing centre at MANN+HUMMEL’s new headquarters.

Martin Muhlmann
