The president and CEO of Siemens AG, Roland Busch, has announced this Monday that the company will invest 160 million euros for the creation of a new “smart” campus in the Las Tablas area, in the north of Madrid, which will house the new headquarters of the company in Spain. Busch has taken advantage of his visit to the country to announce this new location for the company, which will be operational at the end of 2028 and will house 22,000 square meters of offices, garden areas and services. Until then, Siemens will maintain its headquarters at the current headquarters in Tres Cantos.
The headquarters will be located next to the future axis of Madrid Nuevo Norte. Likewise, Siemens has set itself the goal of turning the building into a “benchmark” for intelligent, digital and carbon-neutral infrastructure. “The new ‘Siemens Smart Campus’ will comply with the highest ESG standards, in line with the company’s strategy to become an emissions-neutral company by 2030”, stressed the company’s CEO this morning in Tres Cantos ( Madrid).
Currently, Siemens has nearly 3,700 employees in Spain distributed among different regional headquarters and the current headquarters in Tres Cantos. In the company’s words, the new complex offers a “flexible”, “inclusive” work environment accessible by different modes of public transport. It will also be adapted to the new “labor demands”, in reference to the new forms of hybrid work.
The building will also have a strong social focus, facilitating the inclusion of people with different abilities and spaces to facilitate work-life balance, and will combine climate-friendly energy supply with sustainable mobility solutions, energy management efficient and inclusive space with the city without architectural barriers.
128 years of Siemens in Spain
Siemens sees in this new headquarters the stamp of its commitment to Spain, a country where the company has been based for 128 years. More specifically, he claims to confirm his “vocation of permanence and of becoming a key actor for the growth and transformation of the country.” The company has also stood out in underlining its commitment to the digital and sustainable transformation of its clients and in helping the Spanish economy to successfully materialize the boost that European funds can give to its economic model.
“This decision, in addition to reinforcing our commitment to Spain, as Roland Busch has indicated, also reflects the company’s main purpose, which is to transform people’s day-to-day lives”, commented the president and CEO of Siemens Spain, Augustin Escobar. In this sense, Escobar has defended the need to develop, from the perspective of digitization, “radical” changes in people’s way of life, in the way of relating to the environment or in “more efficient and respectful” manufacturing. .
