April 2017 – The official corner stone laying ceremony of HB’s new administration building has taken place. The new building will be located at our headquarters in Thalhausen right beside our warehouse and logistics center.

Together with architects, the board of directors and a bricklayer, HB company owner Klaus Berthold has walled in a time capsule in the construction shell. It contains the construction plan and a newspaper of the day.

The new building offers approx. 1,500 sqm floor space on three levels for up to 80 employees. Floor to ceiling windows, a light-flooded foyer and facades made of light-coloured nature stone will offer a friendly ambient to visitors and working people. High energy efficiency, real modern technical and office equipment plus a fitness room represent the state-of-the-art office concept of the building.

„With the new building, we emphasize our faith to the region, our job as an important and reliable employer along with our position as Germany’s market leader for PPE garments”, said company owner Klaus Berthold. In the past two years, we have fully modernised our logistics center and we acquired large product lines from the renowned PPE manufacturer TEMPEX®. Until the beginning of 2017 we had over 40 new employees, and we bought two new warehouses for raw material and garments.
