Already in 2007 the managing board of FuelCon decided to invest in their own company building located in the "Technologiepark Ostfalen" in Barleben near Magdeburg. After an intensive planning period, the symbolic ground-breaking ceremony on March 31st, 2009, initiated the construction of a new modern building in the Steinfeldstr. 1, just a few meter away from the old place. With a total investment of 5 Million Euros an extensive production hall, test centre, laboratory as well as meeting and office rooms were build on 3,200 square meters. The bright, classy architecture gives the headquarters a unique character.
