Making room for more health: Pascoe breaks new ground

1630: 1

Giessen, 14.10.2016 – The construction of Pascoe Naturmedizin’s innovative new company premises began last Friday with a communal groundbreaking ceremony in Giessen’s Europaviertel. Pascoe has been trading for over 120 years and is now being run by a third generation of its owner managers. With this new building, the well-known manufacturer of naturopathic medicines is marking another milestone in the company’s long history. The production facility and a new laboratory will be completed in the first phase of construction.

In an emotional address, the grandson of the company’s founder and current CEO, Jürgen Pascoe, emphasized that: "The desire that people feel for the genuinely natural has meant that naturopathy is now very much part of mainstream culture!" And in reference to Giessen as a location, he added: "Ever since my grandfather, Friedrich Pascoe, founded this company Giessen has always been a place where we have felt truly at home. My parents also found great success here over the decades and were able to keep on developing the company. I am delighted that we are now carrying on this tradition and that together we are adding a new chapter to Pascoe's company history in Giessen."

The comprehensive planning process for this highly ambitious construction project was carried out in close collaboration and with the great support of the town of Giessen, and it also included constructive exchanges with neighbouring enterprises. The excellent transport links were a decisive factor in choosing the Europaviertel location. While at the same time, the highest possible value during planning was placed on the existing natural state of the surrounding area with its unusual animal and plant species, all of which has naturally been factored in to the siting of future buildings and the exterior design.

General Manager, Annette Pascoe, continued the theme: "We are so happy and highly motivated to work together with our staff at our new location here in order to produce natural medicines for millions of people and to market them across the globe. Health is wealth and that applies to everyone wherever they are in the world! This is also our guiding principle, which we have adhered to throughout all of the project planning: Successful, healthy living and working."
