Bremen, Germany (SPX) Jun 25, 2012
Three hundred percent growth in six years, 150 people from 26 countries and 30 job vacancies: These are the key figures of the personnel services agency specialized in space.
The headquarter is located in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, with offices in Bremen, Munich and Darmstadt, Germany and in Houston, Texas, USA. On 22 June, the company celebrates thirty years of success.
The employees of HE Space are highly qualified space specialists, ranging from technicians to engineers to scientists, and even including astronauts.
They cover the entire value chain from design, production, quality assurance and integration, launch and operations. All project phases are supported on location by HE Space employees. The company also provides administrative, marketing, legal and public relations expertise.
The client list reads like a who's-who of the German and European space business: The European Space Agency (ESA), Europe's weather satellite operator, EUMETSAT, and the most important players in the European and German space industry, most notably EADS Astrium and Kayser-Threde as well as the German Aerospace Center, DLR.
There is hardly a space programme in Europe where the HE Space workforce is not involved: whether it is the European MetOp meteorological satellite programme; the European navigation flagship project, Galileo; the ATV supply ship for the International Space Station; or Ariane-5 launches from Kourou.
In February, HE Space won its biggest contract yet, out-performing all rivals in an open competition for support to ESA's technical centre in the Netherlands.
The win doubled the company's potential market with its most important client.
The success which the company consistently achieves is built on a number of pillars: quality and motivation combined with the consistent professionalism which the staff from HE Space bring to their work, and the all-round support which the company offers its employees.
CEO Claudia Kessler, herself one of the few female aerospace engineers, comments on the company's success: "In all these years we haven't lost sight of the most important thing: our values, what we call the HE Space Spirit.
We maintain our cultural diversity and we reinforce our business success by the way we treat our employees, how we think and how we act."
