On March 15, 2013, Leica Camera AG and Leitz-Park GmbH held the roofing ceremony for the new Leica building in Wetzlar.
Dr. Andreas Kaufmann, business manager of ACM Projektentwicklung GmbH and Chairman of the Board of Leica Camera AG gave the opening speech. He thanked everyone involved in the planning and realization of the company's new headquarters. “The new building is advancing in great strides and will be ready according to plan by November 2013. Leica Camera AG's move to the Leitz Park should begin to take place at the end of the year,” Dr. Kaufmann confirmed.
By spring 2014, all the production, administration and customer care departments – with a total staff of around 600 – should have settled into their new working places at the new company facilities.
