The LEMKEN family business is an internationally leading specialist supplier for professional agricultural farming. The programme comprises powerful, versatile, high-quality technology for soil cultivation, sowing and crop protection. LEMKEN'S headquarters are located in Alpen, 50 km north of Düsseldorf. Today about 1,400 people work for the company LEMKEN. Apart from two production and assembly sites in Germany, the company LEMKEN also produces in India, Russia and China.

In view of the solid order situation, LEMKEN decided to build a new development plant and to invest in the future. Construction of the new plant in Alpen started in September 2015. The new development plant comprises 3,100 m² of office space spread on two floors as well as a testing facility of 4,200 m² with laboratories and simulation rooms. This new plant adds 140 new modern jobs for engineers in the field of construction and electronics. The family business focused on energy efficiency when designing its new think tank.


The new building is supplied with waste heat from the LEMKEN in-house combined heat and power plants and is thus part of the versatile CO2-saving programme implemented at the Alpen site.

The openly designed offices create a pleasant working environment. The company LEMKEN GmbH & Co. KG opted for efficient and modern Waldmann lighting solutions with the objective of further increasing the well-being and the productivity of its employees. The LAVIGO free-standing luminaire impresses not only with its simple and timeless design but also with its technical features. Thus, the LAVIGO luminaire offers an optimised ratio of direct to indirect light for standard-compliant, uniform illumination of large surfaces. The easy to reach and multifunctional operating element makes the LAVIGO a particularly user-friendly luminaire.
