Infineon Technologies, a manufacturer of modules for power semiconductors, has been deeply rooted in NRW for 78 years. The company is now planning to expand its traditional Warstein site significantly with a new building. The coming years promise strong growth for Infineon in the future market of renewable energies and in R&D activities – and this requires space. Infineon speaks of an "energy transition made in Warstein".
The company manufactures modules that are used in a variety of technologies: Vehicles, home appliances, and renewable energies such as solar panels and wind turbines.
The building will provide laboratory and office space for approximately 350 employees and can be expanded to accommodate up to 500 employees. The building is expected to be ready for occupancy by the end of 2026.
In line with the energy transition, the extension will be built using an innovative timber-hybrid construction method in accordance with the KfW 40 energy efficiency standard to meet the highest sustainability standards.
