Technicon Design has built a new design studio in the old Opel factory building (Autowerk) right in the heart of the city which includes state of the art digital and physical modelling facilities as well as milling facilities. On Tuesday, 17 Jul 12, Patrick Burghardt, the mayor of the town of Rüsselsheim, visited our studio and was impressed by the amount of work we invested into the new studio and most of all the precision and standard to which our staff create new models.
One of the main reasons for choosing this location for our studio was the proximity to our client Adam Opel AG as well as the great transport links with the station in walking distance and excellent connections to Frankfurt Airport and all main motorways. Another reason however was also the possibilities and the atmosphere of the buildings themselves. These old Opel factory buildings “breathe” automotive history and have a flair and atmosphere that cannot be found in any other buildings in Rüsselsheim – the perfect surroundings for modern automotive design development against the background of the birthplace of automotive production.
