MUSIC Group Commits $50 Million to New Campus
Cornerstone ceremony with local representatives opens a new chapter in MUSIC Group history
"It is my distinct pleasure to announce the fulfillment of a major objective of our Group today with the start of this incredible undertaking," announced Uli Behringer to the gathered employees and dignitaries. "This new home will bring together our people from several different sites, our world-class manufacturing and integrated logistics teams into one environmentally sustainable location woven into the natural local landscape. My goal is to make this a place where talented people can attain their life goals without compromise."
The new campus will be home to nearly 5,000 employees and is to include over 3 million square feet of automated factory space housing over 100 surface mount machines, automated transducer lines, injection molding and hydro forming facilities and a total "clean-air" wood products and painting pavilion. The company's already extensive agency test labs will be expanded with additional RF and TDMA facilities and an all-new two-story Anechoic Chamber will be built for acoustical testing. The campus will also offer housing for almost two thousand company employees and include on-site educational, child-care and health facilities.
MUSIC Group have commissioned international consultants to advise on site development, livability and environmental concerns to ensure long-term satisfaction for workers and minimal impact to the surrounding Eco-system. Working with Chinese officials the company aims to make this facility energy efficient and minimize its carbon footprint; something of a revolutionary concept in the industrial province of Guangdong. The stated mandate is to deliver a community where people can live, work and enjoy a quality of life that is as stimulating as it is rewarding.
