02/10/2017 Ground-breaking for Bühler Innovation Campus

Bühler, Uzwil, Switzerland, in the last week of September celebrated the ground breaking of its Innovation Campus in Uzwil. This represents a significant investment of over CHF50 million spent over three years and the new building is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2019. “This innovation campus will reinforce our innovation power and market leadership. It will help us bring together the smartest minds of the industry to create innovations for a better world”, said Bühler CEO Stefan Scheiber.
 
The innovation campus consists of two key elements: the upgraded technology laboratories and the new innovation building which will form a bridge between the engineering and business world in the existing towers and the upgraded application labs. On three levels the modern building will be the home for project teams of employees, clients, start-ups, students and apprentices. It will feature an auditorium for up to 300 participants for large event.
 
Bühler’s existing technology labs, such as the Bakery Innovation Center, have been upgraded – or will be during the building process – and form an integral part of the new campus, as they are closely interlinked with the new building. “This is a unique setting which I have not seen anywhere else”, said Ian Roberts, chief technology officer at Bühler. Innovation has always been a cornerstone of the company’s strategy and business success. Every year it invests 4-5% of its turnover into research and development. www.buhlergroup.com
