Groundbreaking of the extension building
In summer 2018, it was decided to implement the long-planned extension to the company headquarters in Frutigen. On Tuesday, 11 June 2019, less than a week after receiving the construction permit, the groundbreaking for the new building already took place. The entire staff was invited to this event and could be there as Matthias Wandfluh removed the first turf for the new building with a large excavator. The two-storey building with around 3,200m2 will expand the production area by almost 50 percent. These new spatial conditions make it possible to optimise the material flow and production processes as well as the use of machines for which space was previously lacking. The building is to be completed by the end of winter and, once the interior work has been completed, will be put into operation in spring 2020 with the most modern infrastructure.
