Sonepar Awarded Prestige Construction Contract in Germany


The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, or F.A.Z. Tower, is currently under construction in the sought-after Europaviertel area in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany.

The tower will reach around 60 meters high and be home to the publishing and editorial offices of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The customer is GA-tec, a company of the Sodexo Group, which secured the electrical engineering contract and subsequently brought Sonepar in Germany on board.

In addition to competitive prices, an innovative logistics concept was a decisive factor in GA-tec's decision to award Sonepar in Germany the contract. This concept outlines a joint service and processing plan, which includes the provision of roll containers, construction site catalogs, and the option of material floor delivery depending on the construction's progress.

Samuel Eichner, Head of the Building Services and Plant Engineering business unit stated, "We have proven in the past that we can offer exactly this. As with previous projects, the work on the F.A.Z. Tower will again be a joint project between the business unit, the sales region and the relevant specialist departments."

The total project is worth approximately 1.2 million euros. Christian Rodenbach, Head of Project Management in Sales Region 09 added, "All those involved are looking forward to the overarching collaboration but are also proud that this project has been won in the Rhine-Main growth region at the gates and 'home' of a major competitor.
