ON OUR OWN ROOF TERRACE IS WHERE THE COLLEAGUES GATHER FOR OUTDOOR MEETINGS, FOR THE MORNING COFFEE OR FOR AN AFTERWORK BARBECUE. TEAM FACTS One thing is certain: Thework in theOCor generally as an NTS engineer requires a high level of responsibility and in some cases also a high endurance at short notice as emergency situations at the customers are very rarely predictable. Employees have to fit into this environment in order to fulfill these tasks and this seems to be applicable in the city of Goethe’s “Faust” character. With a count of 25, the northernmost of all NTS addresses has themost employees and thus became the head office of NTS Germany. Under the leadership of Operations Manager Max Marschall, the location is on one hand side, the fourth NTS OC next to the ones in Graz, Vienna and Klagenfurt, and on the other hand, it fulfillsmore andmore agendas for customers that are normally reserved to NTS locations. NTSLeipzig continues to be purelyequipped as anOCbut should there be the need for NTS to open a new, fully-fledged location in Germany, then the one in Leipzig is themost suitable one. Because thearguments speak for themselves: The locationof theNTSoffice on theGoerdelerring close to the Leipzig railway station is perfect, the roof terrace with views of the tower of the cityhall and the historic center invites a moment of peace. In general, Leipzig has qualities for NTS as well as for the employees that you would have to search for somewhere else. 1.2million live within a perimeter of 30 minutes by car, the general quality of life helps to achieve an ideal positionon the labormarket. As known for a long time at NTS: The best location does not help when the employees cannot afford living there orwhen the working atmosphere falls short of the expectations. Since the fall of 2021, it is one of the tasks of the Inside Sales Department to make sure that newcomers (and of course also the old hands) feel at ease. During onboarding, the strengths of NTS – honest appreciation and familiar camaraderie (and certainly the high standard of knowhow) - are emphasized. If for some reason you were feeling depressed by the bad weather after a longworking day, thenyou could choose your working climate at NTS with a long workcation. Including a sunburn. THE LEIPZIG SWITCH-HUNTER IT puns are perhaps the only laughs the NTS problem solvers have at work. Because no fun at all are the (sometimes) very urgent and serious customer matters.

ON LOCATION HEALTHY SPIRIT in a healthy NTS OC: NTS takes care of the physical well-being with fresh fruits in the office and a monthly Shiatsu massage. 22 Employees UNIQUE Only once in Europe: a riverside forest almost touches the city center, and it is closely intertwined with the urban development. WORTH LISTENING There is no place where Johann Sebastian Bach lived longer than in Leipzig. Here, he composed some of his most famous works. LIVABLE In Goethe’s play Faust, Faust himself lives in Leipzig and likes to frequent the “Auerbachs Keller”, which is today the most famous as well as the second oldest inn in town. LEIPZIG ROSENHEIM TEAM FACTS ON LOCATION 6 Employees NAME The origins of the name “Rosenheim” are not known. It is assumed that horses (“Rösser” in German) took a break here. SCARY The city tour “Creepy and curious things” is famous with young and old alike. 1234 On this nice date, Rosenheim was mentioned for the first time in history. BAVARIAN CUSTOMERS Kerbl, Convotherm, ITSMedia GmbH (Nürnberger Presse), Dehn, Paul Nutzfahrzeuge, BOGNER, AGCO/Fendt, Weko Wohnen GmbH, Neenah Gessner GmbH, Nemetschek SE Rosenheim does not stop to grow. Although there are limits for the third biggest city in Bavaria with roughly 64,000 inhabitants, the population in the urban agglomeration is constantly growing. It is not onlythewoodand timber industrythat prospers in Rosenheim – the service industry is reporting a solid growthaswell. It is attractive for businesses to establish themselves in the area of Rosenheim due to the proximitytoMunichand at the same time one benefits froma low-price level. Directly related to this, the NTS location was able to increase the number of customers and the revenue. The staff situation in Rosenheim is tense though – simply because of the proximity to Munich, where many locals that work in the IT industry commute to – but the NTS team is well-rehearsed. Even thoughsomepotential employees are lost toMunich, the proximityof the capital of the Free State continues to have a positive impact. NTS Germany is of course still contemplating to establish at some stage their own office directly inMunich, but the customers, even the ones that are directly in Munich, are currently satisfied with the status quo. As they say in Bavaria: “Das passt scho.“ – “Fair enough.” The quality of life is at least “fair and enough” for the team at the NTS location. In the area of Rosenheim, housing is still affordable, and the entire region of Upper Bavaria is beyond compare with regard to ease of access as well as leisure and nature opportunities. Indeed, if you look at the mountains of the Chiemgau from the NTS office, then every big city will have a hard time to find good reasons. The in- and outdoor setting is without doubt perfectly situated to offer a high level of “Relax, We Care” to all NTS customers. WE REMAIN THE SAME AND NTS STAYS! A reputable list of customers with well-known names is still a good, supporting argument in Bavaria. NTS was apparently able to deliver many such good arguments as the NTS location, which was opened in 2018, has made a name for itself in the region around Rosenheim and in the greater Munich area.
