Pepperl+Fuchs’ new facility embraces changing workforce

July 3, 2024
The new office building will embrace collaborative environments, seeking more innovation and creative problem solving
The Pepperl+Fuchs U.S. Division broke ground on a new 25,000-square-foot office building for 120 employees in Twinsburg, Ohio. The new office is designed for the current and changing work environment, including how companies work, where they work and how they communicate. The new spaces will be designated for a specific purpose, including focused work, communication, collaboration and recreation. 
Work21@ Pepperl+Fuchs is a new, future-oriented concept that is at the heart of the construction of the new headquarters and focuses on collaboration between colleagues. Collaborative environments encourage the exchange of ideas from diverse perspectives, leading to innovative solutions and creative problem solving. The new building’s open workspace will facilitate access to coworkers from different departments and encourage activity-based working over function-based working. The company says this type of workspace allows for multiple tasks and activities in one area, more knowledge sharing and interaction, and improved corporate communication.
“We are excited about the possibilities this new building offers. Not only will we have a fresh new space for our Twinsburg location, we will also be able to embrace the future of work head-on and be prepared for what comes next,” says Robert Smith, COO of Pepperl+Fuchs. “Our local work21 group and the global cross-functional group have spent months working with an employee-centered agency to develop our new work concept; one that focuses on organizational growth, the evolution toward hybrid work demands, and a positive work-life balance. Today’s digital working environment and hybrid work schedules have been uniquely meshed into the design of our new building. We look forward to continuing to set the standard for automation excellence in this redesigned workspace and developing some of the most innovative automation solutions in the world.”
The groundbreaking ceremony took place in May 2024 and the project is expected to be completed in late 2025.
