Zeiss announced that it has completed the “steel topping out” phase of its new high tech site in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The new center will encompass 208,650 square feet with three floors. It is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2020 and will bring together multiple Zeiss segments under one roof to create a place for up to 700 workspaces.
The new site in Dublin is an integral part of Zeiss’ global investment strategy and is one in a string of international projects aimed at expanding, modernizing, and realigning sites that Zeiss has been implementing in Germany, Europe and Asia since 2011, according to a company news release.
“Our investments are focused on leveraging the existing potential in our growth markets,” Dr. Christian Mueller, member of the Executive Board and CFO of the Zeiss Group, said in the news release. “As a global technology leader, we need an even stronger presence and better networking at the innovation hotspots.”
Dublin will serve as the US headquarters for Zeiss Medical Technology, with Zeiss Industrial Quality & Research and Zeiss Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology also being located there. The facility will feature customer experience centers for Medical Technology and Microscopy, along with digital training rooms for employees and customers to thrive and to bring customers the best solutions to meet their needs.
It is located on 13.5 acres, near the I-580 and I-680 interchange and within walking distance of two BART stations with access to San Francisco and Oakland. The facility will be built according to sustainable principles.
