BOBST continues to invest in its Lyon site

<< Back to Breaking News

In late June 2018, Bobst Lyon in France broke ground on a new commercial building at its Bron site. It will be used by the company’s entire administrative staff as of early 2020.

The new 177-meter long facility is designed in a pure and contemporary architectural style, in line with BOBST’s corporate identity. This innovative three-level building is designed to promote communication, interaction and creativity within the organization across its 10,200 square meters of office space. Glass façades will provide employees with excellent natural lighting, and the building envelope will offer a high thermal performance. The culmination of a joint consultation process between the architecture firm, works council and staff committees, the interior layout will include a variety of workspaces that meet 21st-century standards for collaborative work.

“Our packaging machines are high-tech products manufactured in a rigorous industrial environment that requires continuous contact between the production workshops, R&D engineers and installation teams,” says Emmanuel Roquet, Chairman of Bobst Lyon. “Having a manufacturing facility that brings together all the company’s services at a single site will help rationalize our structure and enhance efficiency.”

Landscaped space and biodiversity
The project includes plans for the development of a 1,000 square meter pond with a diverse ecosystem, a wooded area with a forest containing 860 oak and maple trees, and tree-covered parking.

The construction of this administrative building is the third and final phase of BOBST’s site renovation project at Lyon. These investments in the future are going into improving company infrastructure (consolidation of manufacturing and logistics businesses and a new commercial building) and developing employee expertise through the Competence Center. Completed in June 2018, this showroom is where customers can come and see full production lines in real operating conditions. BOBST engineers and technicians will also use the Competence Center for training and developing new, innovative machines.

Bobst Lyon has been active in the Lyon region since 1923. With its 750 employees, the company manufactures high-tech packaging machines that combine in-line flexo, die-cutting and folding-gluing processes, and produces corrugated board cases in a single run at a speed of up to 33,000 boxes per hour.
