The forthcoming relocation to its new headquarters signifies a significant expansion, with plans to accommodate up to 200 employees dedicated to realizing Exotec’s ambitious vision for the future. Scheduled for the winter of 2024, this move marks a pivotal moment in Exotec’s journey towards innovation and growth.
“We can see from Exotec’s decision that Munich Airport is no longer just a popular take-off point for airlines and travelers. LabCampus offers ideal conditions for companies that are looking to achieve new goals. Great innovations are created where great ideas come together – this is what LabCampus stands for. We are delighted to welcome a global company in Exotec,” says Nathalie Leroy, Chief Financial Officer and Director of Infrastructure at Munich Airport.
“Innovative technology needs a vibrant ecosystem of knowledge, talent, and network partners. At LabCampus, we have found a location with the ideal conditions to get off to a flying start with innovative products from Exotec. Together, we not only want to work on our robotic systems here, but also to create creative and innovative synergies,” says Markus Schlotter, Exotec’s Managing Director for Central Europe.
Innovation hub – a place for collaboration, networking, and research
LabCampus serves as a dynamic innovation nexus, fostering connections between international corporations, niche market leaders, and emerging scaleups, alongside research institutions and budding talents, facilitating the exchange of knowledge and technology throughout Bavaria. Joining the ranks of esteemed occupants like Deutsche Flugsicherung and the AirportAcademy, amplimind—a collaboration between AUDI and Lufthansa Industry Solutions—is poised to inhabit LabCampus’ premises come March 2024. Furthermore, another significant addition from the tech sector is on the horizon: the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is gearing up to establish a dedicated research site for students within the premises of LAB 48 and LAB 52.
