Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek accompanies reorganization of QUNDIS GmbH: existing manufacturing locations merged at the new headquarters in Erfurt
QUNDIS GmbH, formed from the merger of two companies with long-standing tradition, QVEDIS (Mühlhausen, Thuringia) and KUNDO SystemTechnik (St. Georgen, Baden-Württemberg) is relocating: QUNDIS, leading provider of measuring instruments and measuring systems for the consumption-dependent determination of water heating and space heating, will concentrate its research, development and manufacturing capacities in Erfurt in the future. "The move of the Mühlhausen and St. Georgen locations to the state capital of Thuringia is to ensure continuous growth and the intended national and international expansion of the group," said Dieter Berndt, the company's General Manager, responsible for the reorganization.
In the course of the relocation, QUNDIS relies on the commercial law firm of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, specifically Hamburg-based employment law experts Kay Jacobsen and Dr. Johan Michel Menke. Both of them had advised QUNDIS in employment law in the last few years, including now in the course of the company's relocation to Erfurt, allowing QUNDIS to successfully conclude the negotiations with the two work councils in a short period. "Provisions are made in the rules on the social plan for reconciliation of interests for all of the about 250 employees of the existing locations to relocate to Erfurt," Jacobsen said.
Now the implementation under individual employment law is to follow. Menke: "For personal reasons, not all of the employees will be able to relocate to Erfurt; the arising departures are operational and will take place according to social criteria."
The client relationship of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek goes back to Dr. Peter Christian Schmidt.
