Since end of May 2012, Centigrade resides in its new office premises in Science Park 2, which are two times the size of the old office.
Thomas Immich, CEO Centigrade: “Moving into new premises was the logical consequence of Centigrade’s steady growth. The new office allows us to keep increasing the strength of our team in order to respond to the growing demand regarding our services. As a side effect, moving offices in the way we did is also ‘user friendly’ for our clients from the communication perspective, since the familiar contact data has not changed –just the floor levels did.”
