IGEL moves into new facility in Dortmund

Improved customer relationship – benefit from Technical University

As of January 1, 2017, IGEL Electric will be relocating from Sendenhorst to the metropolis of Westphalia, Dortmund. The company, known as a system integrator for electronic drive technology, will be moving into modern office suites in the suburb of Barop in Dortmund in the new year. The move will allow IGEL to further improve customer relationship, and to benefit from the proximity to the Faculty for Electrical Engineering at the Dortmund Technical University.

In terms of IGELs international business, the new location, street address Hauert 14a, is ideally located between the A40 and A45 highways. Both the main railway station and the airports in Dortmund and Dusseldorf are close by. Thanks to these locationrelated factors, IGEL will be able to improve its customer relationship on a personal level. IGELs drive technology specialists will be able to reach customers more quickly, and can thus react more flexibly to their demands.

In addition, the Faculty for Electrical Engineering at the Dortmund Technical University is located close to the new IGEL headquarters. This location-related advantage will provide the innovation leader in the field of soft starter technology with more opportunities to develop direct contact with both young and experienced experts, in order to continually develop energy- and cost-saving solutions in the field of electronic drive technology.

Numerous medium-sized companies in the fields of energy technology and metal processing have settled all around the North Campus of the Dortmund Technical University. Also located in this area is the Fraunhofer Institute for Software and System Technology as well as the Dortmund Technology Centre, which is one of the leading technology centers in Europe, and as such is an important hub for cutting-edge technologies.

“Here we can expand and enhance our know-how ideally, in order to continue developing our innovative solutions in the field of drive technology”, says Michael Kleiböhmer gleefully, managing director of IGEL Electric, at the new location at Hauert 14a. “We can reach our customers more quickly, and we also provide attractive career opportunities for recent graduates.” In addition to the head office in Dortmund, IGEL also maintains a branch office in Dubai.
