SKF Relocates Headquarters
Sweden SKF has now been granted a building permit to reconstruct the old central warehouse in SKF's production area into a dynamic and energy-efficient office building.
Many of the company's corporate functions are available today in Gamlestaden in Gothenburg, in the well-known yellow, tall building from 1967, as well as in one of the first factory buildings. Both buildings were sold in the early 2000s, and SKF has leased the premises since. The lease will expire in not too long, and the facilities are facing a significant renovation.
“We have evaluated various alternatives, but reusing and rebuilding the former central warehouse is the most beneficial. We utilize existing vacant premises, create new conditions for working across the company boundaries and stimulate effective collaboration and communication. Also, the building becomes more surface and energy efficient” says Christian Johansson.
The building will be ready for occupancy during the summer of 2020.
