Award win makes it a healthy start for Doosan Bobcat premises

DOOSAN Bobcat’s new Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) HQ in Dobris, Czech Republic, has won a prestigious award.

The manufacturer has revealed the recently opened base triumphed in the ‘Healthy Environment and Sustainability’ category in the CBRE Art of Space Awards.

The building sits alongside the Dobris manufacturing plant and the training and innovation centre, where compact construction, agricultural and other Bobcat machines are produced.

The 10 million Euro, three-storey, Doosan Bobcat EMEA headquarters building covers an area of ​​1,561 sqm and offers more than 3,370 sqm of usable office space for 200 employees. Parking spaces include charging stations for electric cars, while investments were also made in the construction of green areas.

In the CBRE Art of Space Awards, almost 250 candidates competed in six main categories across the entire spectrum of commercial real estate.

Sebastien Millet, VP, procurement, Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said, “Thanks to our win in this key category, we can be rightfully proud of one of the healthiest work environments in the Czech Republic. With the new headquarters in Dobris, we have completed an investment which, thanks to the concentration of development, production and management of the company in one place, is of socio-economic importance for the entire region and is exceptional within our field.

“Over time, we have invested approximately 120 million Euros in Doosan Bobcat’s operations in the Czech Republic, and the current CBRE Art of Space Award provides more proof that we have set out on the right path.”
