Foundry 42

Part four of our series featuring “Recent foreign investments” in Hessen: The US gaming company Foundry 42 opened a new studio located in downtown Frankfurt.

After having started off in a temporary office, the company is now based in a permanent location. Foundry 42 started with 2 employees and quickly grew to about 10 employees, at which point they decided that it was time to look for larger and permanent office space. The company, with currently 27 full time employees, expects to grow to 50+ employees within the next 12-18 months, possibly even more.

Strategically, Hessen is a good location because of direct flights, market/customer base, qualified workforce/IT experts, university programs/sufficient graduates specializing in IT, especially in the Darmstadt and Frankfurt area. Additional reasons are the logistics and internationality of the area, plus the fact that Frankfurt is less expensive than other German cities with international schools, etc.
