CompuGroup Medical Expands the Technology Park

Koblenz, April 19, 2012: CompuGroup Medical (CGM) yesterday inaugurated the new corporate headquarters. The 300 guests also included political dignitaries such as the governor of Rheinland-Pfalz Kurt Beck (SPD), Julia Klöckner (CDU) and Professor Dr. Joachim Hofmann- Götttig (SPD). After only 19 months of construction, the new corporate headquarters was completed in the CGM technology park in Koblenz, including executive offices, an innovation forum and an office building. The expansion on the grounds of the historical Maria Trost site starts another chapter in CGM’s 25-year history of growth. Today, the Koblenz- based company is one of the leading international manufacturers of medical information and communication technology. In Germany, one out of every two private practice physicians is a CGM customer and CGM supports all participants in the healthcare system.

“The new corporate headquarters is a symbol of growth as we continue our successful journey, and a communication platform for new ideas and developments. From here, we will guide our numerous offices in currently 19 countries worldwide”, explains Frank Gotthardt, chief executive officer of CompuGroup Medical AG. “The modern architecture represents our company’s dynamics and innovative strength. At the same time, it is also a clear signal of our energy for a successful future.” This also includes an investment of 130 million euros in product research and development to support physicians, pharmacists and other participants in the healthcare system with pioneering software solutions. The SAM products are a perfect example to highlight in this context – SAM is the acronym for Software Assisted Medicine.

Importance of eHealth in Germany
During the opening ceremonies, political and business dignitaries spoke about the importance of eHealth in Germany. The speakers indicated how pleased they were with CGM’s continuous growth and their helpful solutions. “A modern company such as CompuGroup Medical enriches our region, from an economic as well as a technological aspect,“ praised Kurt Beck, the governor of Rheinland-Pfalz. “Our region’s ability to compete was strengthened by the expansion of the CGM headquarters.”

The software company has made the Koblenz enterprise zone their home for almost 25 years. Approximately 1000 of their 3500 employees now work at the technology park. The new buildings are spread out over a total area of 6,600 sqm, with total lot coverage of 2,800 sqm. The buildings provide new offices for the executives and 170 additional employees performing corporate functions and also offer space for an innovation forum. In addition, there are new benefits for employees: aside from a bistro and a daycare facility, they now have a new company-owned fitness center. In keeping with the responsible company philosophy, the new buildings were constructed using environmentally friendly, resource-efficient passive energy standards.
