Buchloe in Ostallgäu has been the new home of Franz Mensch GmbH since September 2017
The strong growth of previous years has meant that Franz Mensch, with its headquarters in Eresing, has reached its limits in terms of space. In order to be able to meet the increasing demand of customers in the future, the management decided to expand geographically.
The available construction area in Buchloe seemed ideal to be well prepared for the future. This leaves room for further growth and has a very good infrastructure connection due to its direct location on the A96.
The data and facts about construction planning:
- Location: Buchloe, Gewerbegebiet Nordwest, Werner-von-Siemens-Str. 2
- Investment: approx. 21 Millionen Euro
- Lot size: approx. 50.000 m²
- Building: Offices with approx. 2.950 m², warehouse with approx. 5.300 m², automated high-bay warehouses with approx. 5.600 m² and approx. 25 m height
- Palett storage area: approx. 44.000 CCG1 pallets
- Jobs: starting the new construction approx. 100 employees, in 2018 we have grown up to 120 employees, the first construction phase offers room for approx. 200 employees
Within just two years, the plan became reality:

The special focus: A sustainable construction method as well as specially produced green electricity through a photovoltaic system
Franz Mensch attaches great importance to sustainability and environmental protection. Therefore, it was clear that the new headquarters should be built sustainably. The 1,500 m² photovoltaic system on the roof of the logistics hall also covers almost the entire power requirement of the company. The remaining electricity is drawn from 100% natural power from Stadtwerke Fürstenfeldbruck (Certificate natural power).
Pictures and videos are worth a thousand words ...
