We invest in the future

D.I.S is pleased to announce that the construction of our European Research and Development Center (ERDC) with an office area of 1300 m2 and connected production halls of almost 5000 m2 in the industrial park Copitz-Nord in Pirna has started. FREYLER Industriebau GmbH from Riesa is the general contractor for the construction work. 

The European quarters of the US-German  D.I.S Group will be built on a site of approx. 13,000 m2, with neighboring extension areas available for future expansion.

Within the last few weeks, foundation work for the sleeve and strip foundations has taken place following site grading and foundation excavation. If there are no further delays we hope that the outer shell of our development and manufacturing complex will be completed before the end of December 2022.

Some first visual impressions of the construction activities are given in the following.


The construction sign was erected on August 17, 2022.
