True to its motto, ‘Standing still is a step backward’, Kempf successfully completed its ambitious relocation project in little over a year. The new pin at Reutfeld 1, in Rohrbach, has officially been dropped on its brand new headquarters, reminiscent of a New York atmosphere. Not one to stand still, the bakeware specialist’s team brought German efficiency into the scene and is already at work in a new and improved home.

November 2022: Seven shovels breaking ground on a crisp morning marked the first visible sign of a long-thought-out expansion project. All things considered, including an unstable geo-political environment in Europe and beyond, supply chain disruptions and global inflation worries, Kempf made the timing work and built a 20,000 sqm headquarters containing the necessary expansion of its production facilities, with space dedicated to logistics and modern office spaces. One year and around EUR 30 million later, what started as an ambitious blueprint became a fully functional building for Kempf’s 140 employees currently working at the Rohrbach facility (and counting, with hirings underway, there should be 160 by the end of the year).
