Teamwork achieves more

Teamwork & interdisciplinarity ensure the best coordination within the MEC and in cooperation with our customers and partners. Because we are coordinated with our way of working and can assign our work steps in the right order. Our team spirit and our interdisciplinary way of thinking bring us all further forward. That's why we work together across departments to always find optimal solutions with innovative approaches for our customers.

The interplay of individual services provides valuable synergies and lean processes. Only by working together can we keep everything in sight. We support each other as a team and, at the same time, foster the individual strengths of each individual.

How do we do it? It’s right here.

Our coordination training has paid off:

In dialogue with the industry: visits to trade fairs and conferences

Networking with industry colleagues and at the same time gaining knowledge of the latest developments on the market is a matter of course for us. Therefore, visits to relevant trade fairs and conferences are part of our job. We are regularly - usually with several colleagues from different areas - at events such as the Expo Real, the Handelsimmobilien Gipfel or the ECE Retail MeetingOn site, we show the relevant target groups our interdisciplinary team power - perhaps already to the customers and trading partners of tomorrow.

Giving Back: Fundraisers and Sponsorships

Whether it’s the Ukraine aid campaign in the Lausitz Center, jersey donations to young, up-and-coming sports clubs, such as in Saarbasar, or the long-standing support of the Bethanien Center in the biker donation campaign – our MEC location teams have been supporting various local institutions, clubs or projects for many years. In 2022, our relief efforts picked up speed. Not least because since then everyone from the MEC team has been able to make their contribution. Every year, all permanent employees have the choice of whether they would like to continue to receive a birthday present or whether the amount of 10 euros reserved for this should be donated to a non-profit organization. The majority decided to donate in 2022 and also where the donation goes. In 2023, a total of 3,000 euros could be handed over to the wish wagon of the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund (ASB) be handed over. This fulfills the special wishes of seriously ill people throughout Germany. ASB was very happy as this report shows..

T.E.C. refurbishment project, Erfurt

We extensively altered and freshened up the appearance of the T.E.C. shopping mall in Erfurt in a coordinated project – working across all departments and with external support. The aim was to offer customers of the retail centre a contemporary shopping experience in a relaxed environment, while at the same time future-proofing the T.E.C.

Dreieich Nordpark refurbishment project

A large refurbishment project is currently underway in Dreieich Nordpark. By 2024 we will restructure our center and completely reposition it. Approval for the realization of the new overall concept, which the interdisciplinary MEC team developed on behalf of the owner, is available.

The diverse conversion measures inside and the outside facade are in full swing. The MEC team developed the design language together with the renowned architectural office TBI Architecture & Engineering and steguweit brand perspectives The designs resulting from the collaboration show what it should look like on site in the future. The tenant logos shown serve as examples.

Since we also provide operational site management on site – consisting of center management, leasing management and technical property management – from a single source, our leasing colleagues are already in intensive lease negotiations with well-known new dealers. We were able to win Kaufland as an anchor tenant as early as the end of 2021, while Woolworth opened in turn in the newly created space in 2023.

Portfolio Teams

Existing teams are our epitome of interdisciplinary teamwork: The team always consists of commercial asset management, center management and leasing management. By combining our specialist expertise, we combine our strengths in a coordinated manner for the commercial properties we manage. This collaboration creates better ideas - not least because of the active exchange between each other. You can find out more about how we work on pages 9-10 and 12-13 in our image brochure.

Digitalisation of MEC

Very clear right from the start: we ask our colleagues what they need for IT applications. All departments were represented and actively contributed to the development. Formerly linked to Metro IT, we have had our own tailor-made IT since mid-2022.

The following also applies to the future: Each of the MEC colleagues can actively participate and pass on their ideas and needs to the IT team - as an internal customer request. Support is a top priority in the MEC team. This gives us the potential to achieve new competitive advantages through digital innovations. 

Talent wins games. But teamwork wins championships.

That’s how we keep fit
