Crayon Switzerland is planning to expand its headquarters located in Altdorf in the canton of Uri. According to an article published in the newspaper “Luzerner Zeitung”, the company intends to move into the existing building of the Cantonal Bank of Uri near Bahnhofplatz in 2022. The new office space covers an area of 1,000 square meters, which is nearly three times as large as the current headquarters.

According to Rolf Stadler, CEO of Crayon Schweiz, Altdorf and the canton of Uri offers an “ideal environment”. He highlights in particular the proximity to Zurich in addition to the high quality of life and leisure time in the region.

According to a report by the portal wirtschaftszeit.ch, Crayon Switzerland is also planning to open a new location in Western Switzerland. The company’s aim here is to expand its workforce in Switzerland over the medium term from 40 employees to a total of 100 members of staff, with the majority expected to work out of the Altdorf location.

At present, Crayon Switzerland is focusing on cloud services. In this field, the company is keen to position itself among the leading service providers across Switzerland. At the same time, however, Crayon Switzerland is in the process of building a team to cover the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI). According to information in the report on wirtschaftszeit.ch, the company sees huge potential in combining its proprietary cloud services with AI functionalities.

“The success seen over recent years, the innovative capacity of our employees and last but not least the trust from our clients, many of whom have worked with us for several years, represent both confirmation and incentive for us to take these steps and further expand our portfolio”, comments Stadler in the article on wirtschaftszeit.ch.

The Norwegian Crayon Group has been active in Switzerland via a dedicated subsidiary since 2015. Crayon Switzerland offers IT services to companies in addition to consulting on using software solutions efficiently.
