ZEISS Opens High-Tech Center in North America
ZEISS has completed construction of its new R&D, production, sales and customer service site in the San Francisco Bay Area. Bringing together hundreds of ZEISS employees and key functions under one roof represents a major milestone in the company’s international innovation and growth strategy.
“The new ZEISS Innovation Center harnesses our technological, research and customer services strengths in one of the world’s premier technology innovation locations,” said Dr. Christian Müller, Chief Financial Officer of the ZEISS Group.
The $180 million investment in the new high-tech site in Dublin, a fast-growing city near San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose, is an integral part of the ZEISS global strategy to expand its presence close to research centers and growth markets. The ZEISS Innovation Center’s R&D efforts will increasingly focus on digital solutions and scientific and industry partnerships spanning disciplines and technologies.
The ZEISS Innovation Center houses customer experience and demonstration centers showcasing recent ZEISS innovations, as well as research laboratories, service and production facilities.
The new Center meets the highest green energy and sustainability standards. The building is powered by solar energy, supported by use-based light and air controls and a heat recovery system. Sophisticated light and insulation technologies help regulate the indoor temperature. Rainwater collection and retention, along with wetland enhancement and maintenance, are incorporated into the exterior design.
