Villeroy & Boch opens new office and conference centre at the headquarters in Mettlach: A modern office concept at the former factory

The ideal workplace for every task: With this aim in mind, Villeroy & Boch has opened its new office and conference centre, Factory N°09, in Mettlach and completed an important element of its “Mettlach 2.0” site development project. Modern workstation concepts promote innovative, creative thinking and facilitate the cross-departmental transfer of expertise.

Only the name, Factory N°09, suggests that this was once home to warehouses and production facilities. The new building replaces traditional office structures with a wide range of working space concepts. Open spaces and varied working areas promote communication and cooperation among all employees.

The centrepiece of the building, which covers more than 4,000 square metres across three floors, is a large oak staircase in the new entrance area. It connects the ground floor to the upper levels and ensures visibility between the floors. But the staircase is more than just an eye-catching meeting point. It also symbolises the new working environment created by Villeroy & Boch at Factory N°09, which is characterised by open communication and creative exchange. Three zones – “marketplace”, “working” and “networking” – provide working space for more than 200 employees from the various communication departments in the areas of marketing, the online unit, PR, and product development and management.

“I am proud that we have created a modern working environment for our employees with the completion of Factory N°09. We are promoting networked cooperation, communication and the exchange of information in a variety of work and project spaces, particularly across departmental and divisional boundaries,” explains Frank Göring, CEO of Villeroy & Boch AG. “Factory N°09 offers the right space and the right working situation for every task. For example, teamwork can be done in group work areas and project rooms, the silent rooms are suitable for work requiring a high degree of concentration, and the networking spaces can be used for temporary work between two meetings or for exchanging ideas.”

The CEO is a big fan of Factory N°09: “Our employees are our most valuable asset. We want to offer them ideal working conditions and attract talented people from all over the world to Mettlach. I have no doubt that Fabrik N°09 represents an important step towards achieving this aim.”

The toilet facilities in Factory N°09 are a particular highlight. No two bathrooms in the building are the same. There are a total of seven bathrooms – all of them fitted exclusively with Villeroy & Boch products and designed using themes developed specially for Factory N°09, with matching music: from energy boost rooms with strong colours or a metallic look through to the zen garden and an Amazonia or jungle bathroom.
