The optics company Leica started building their new headquarters in Wetzlar. After 25 years in middle Hesse in Solms, the company, founded in 1849, thus is returning to the place of its origin. "The return of Leica is not just a reminder of the past, but also a decision for the future", said Prime Minister Volker Bouffier (CDU) on Wednesday at the groundbreaking of the manufacturing plant for 650 coworkers. The brand has international standing and is the foundation for future success.
