Mediahuis Limburg, publisher of De Limburger newspaper, is moving its headquarters from Sittard to Maastricht. The move to the Rabobank office in the Céramique district is expected to take place in mid-2022. Mediahuis Limburg also plans to open a smaller office in Venlo next year.
“Maastricht is the political, administrative and cultural centre of the province and therefore our most important field of activity as a leading media company in Limburg,” CEO Maurice Ubags says about the choice. “Its university moreover gives Maastricht a dynamic and international character, and many highly educated young people live there. In view of the future labour market, this is an important factor for us. Mediahuis Limburg and the other companies in our Mediahuis group want to increasingly accelerate the pace of their digital transformation.”
The choice fell on the Rabobank office at the Wim Duisenbergplantsoen in the Céramique district in Maastricht. Ubags: “As mentioned, Mediahuis Limburg is undergoing a rapid digital development. This calls for a more open and hybrid way of working, especially between employees of different teams and backgrounds in our organisation. The layout and design of our new office ideally lends itself to this new style of working.”
In addition to the new Maastricht location, Mediahuis Limburg also plans to open an office in Venlo next year. The exact location is not yet known. “Limburg is an elongated province. The distance between Maastricht in the south and Mook, located in the north, is about 130 kilometres. For reporters and sales teams based in the northern and central part of the province, an extra office in Venlo is the perfect solution,” Ubags says.
