Royal DSM, a global, purpose-led, science-based company active in health, nutrition and sustainable living, intends to build a new, highly sustainable, modern and inspiring head office in Maastricht, capital of the Limburg province. The new office will be a true visualization of DSM’s culture and underpins the company’s philosophy of hybrid working in an inspiring clubhouse-like environment where people can connect and collaborate. The building is set to be ready by the end of 2023.

DSM will apply the highest sustainability standards (BREEAM) in the design and construction of the office, which will be energy neutral. The user experience and DSM’s hybrid working principles form the basis of the design. The new office will be an integral part of DSM’s connected network of global business and R&D headquarters, regional head offices, (home) offices and manufacturing locations.

Geraldine Matchett and Dimitri de Vreeze, Co-CEOs of Royal DSM, commented: “DSM’s new head office is more than a new building: it’s an inspiring, healthy and open place that will be stylishly integrated in the environment and the community around it. We’re looking forward to providing a positive working environment for employees and visitors, with wellbeing and sustainability at the heart.”

The new office is located in the middle of a vibrant, urban environment in Maastricht’s city center (Wyck district), with a train station, hotels and other services in close proximity. The plot in Maastricht consists of two buildings – a historic monument and a cinema – that will be combined, renovated, and refurbished to give them a new life and a new purpose. By connecting the old with the new the office will reflect the company’s historic roots and the modern, inclusive, innovative and purpose-led organization of today.

The current head office in Heerlen has been a good home to DSM for many years. DSM explored several options to future-proof its office infrastructure in the Limburg region. This led to the decision not to re-open the Sittard office and showed that building a new head office on the designated plot in Maastricht is a great long-term solution, facilitating the company’s hybrid way of working. DSM will work closely with the local municipality to find a suitable new owner for the Heerlen office.
