SAN LM-Tech invests in high-tech laboratory

13. October 2022

SAN Group is building a new laboratory for food, feed, and water diagnostics in Ahlhorn, Germany. A former casern on a one-time NATO airport compound is being completely renovated and converted into an environmentally friendly high-tech building for up to 50 employees. Sustainability is the cornerstone of our corporate philosophy. This is why SAN Group has decided to consolidate its existing activities by moving them into an existing building.

The future of food analysis

On the 25,000 m² site in Lower Saxony, there is enough space for future developments on a total building area of about 2,700 m², including 800 m² of laboratory space. Under the slogan "Fit for Future", the laboratory space will be doubled compared to the current usable space in Höltinghausen. There are several new features like a canteen, PV system, and generously designed outdoor spaces, as well as roof extensions with many open areas to provide light and brightness. In addition, the installation of self-contained, climate-neutral systems that enable energy-saving heating and cooling will ensure top working conditions in one to two years.
