Karl-Josef Laumann finds out about Wilo’s health centre, the Health Cube

The Minister for Labour, Health and Social Affairs of North Rhine-Westphalia visits the Wilopark

Dortmund. Karl-Josef Laumann, the Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, paid a visit to the Wilopark in Dortmund. While speaking to President & CEO of the Wilo Group, Oliver Hermes, Mr Laumann learnt about Wilo as an employer and in particular about the Health Cube concept. Wilo employees worldwide and throughout the entire Dortmund region will benefit from this innovative health centre. Construction will begin in May 2024 and will be completed by the end of 2025. The official opening of the new Health Cube is planned for the beginning of 2026.

“Sustainable health management is an important factor when it comes to retaining or attracting skilled labour”, said Laumann during his visit to the site. “That’s why we’re very glad to see when large companies like Wilo take a proactive approach and set a good example.” Oliver Hermes explained: “The Health Cube is not only an expression of our ambitious and long-term sustainability strategy, but also of our pioneering spirit: The innovative concept meets the current and future challenges in healthcare. Wilo is once again boldly leading the way.”

The concept of the new Wilo Health Centre: With a modern location, a holistic approach to medicine and high-quality treatments on offer, a number of general practitioners, specialists and therapists will work on an outpatient basis to resolve their patients’ acute problems, as well as actively support their long-term health. All of this is made possible through a comprehensive offering of premium-quality diagnostic and therapeutic services.

While being shown around the Wilopark, the Minister was also impressed by the state-of-the-art Smart Factory and the H2POWERPLANT hydrogen plant.
