In the first phase of its plans, Zünd Systemtechnik AG is investing in a building expansion at its headquarters in Altstätten. According to a statement, the company, which has experienced continuous growth, is responding to the high demand for digital cutting systems.  

The three-storey building will offer additional space for customer service and research and development. "The ground floor will be used for training and conference rooms as well as a cafeteria for employees and visitors," explained Oliver Zünd, CEO of the company from the St.GallenBodenseeArea.

Both the building exterior and the landscaping will be "greened" with surfaces that absorb water runoff, writes the statement. These plans for natural landscaping are a continuation of a long-held company philosophy at Zünd Systemtechnik AG. "Creating natural shade in the courtyard fosters both pleasing environmental conditions and aesthetically appealing meeting spaces," commented company founder Karl Zünd in the statement. 

For the second phase, planning is also underway for a new assembly and logistics building. The goal is to move into the new facility in 2022.
