GERMANY • Herma has opened a new chapter in its company history which spans nearly 110 years. It concerns the development of the company’s largest site: the self-adhesive technology specialist has acquired a more than 80,000 square metre (861113 sqft) area in Filderstadt that directly borders its headquarters.

After ten years of strong growth in the self-adhesive materials, labels, and labelling machines divisions, the expansion options at Herma’s current premises, which measure approximately 50,000 square metres (538196 sqft) 5.52084, are almost exhausted. Herma has been producing in Filderstadt since 1961. In 2008, the company which used to be based in Stuttgart moved its headquarters there. Out of the total of 900 employees worldwide, approx. 650 work in Filderstadt.
