Heron Innovation Factory
The Heron Innovations Factory is the foundation of our constant desire to innovate. According to our product philosophy, the design of the company building follows a modular design. This leads to open and modern work areas which help us to react flexibly and quickly to changes in our work environment. The result is open and direct communication among our employees, a flat hierarchy from the apprentice to the CEO. Open, innovative & quick, like a startup company.
The Innovations Factory should be an active & lively work environment. A place to generate new ideas & innovations. It is our goal to welcome customers with a current project and allow them to see the entire range of innovations and latest technologies in real-time. For example, Servus Transport Robots connect the entire company logistics, production and commissioning. Every department, from parts receiving to shipping, is connected through Servus to allow our employees to concentrate on value-add activities as much as possible.
With the Innovations Factory we want to show the future implications of a connected organization in the age of Industry 4.0 and lean culture on our employees and organizations.
