Urma AG has submitted a planning application for a new headquarters. Like the Rupperswil headquarters, the new office will be located in the canton of Aargau. According to a statement from the company, which specializes in machine tools and additive manufacturing (3D printing), a new Experience Center will be built in Mägenwil by summer 2025. The second Swiss headquarters is designed for 30 employees, who will either be relocated from Rupperswil to Mägenwil or newly appointed, writes the statement. The family business has been operating globally for over 60 years with around 130 employees.
The new Experience Center will be built on the 3,600 square meter site in the "Büntli" industrial and commercial area in Mägenwil by summer 2025, with offices and a large exhibition area for CNC machines, 3D printers, post-processing machines and all other machining products. In the exhibition area, customers will be able to view a variety of machines and gain a comprehensive insight into additive manufacturing along the entire production chain, according to the company.
"The canton of Aargau lies in the heart of Switzerland's strongest economic region and is located on the main transport axes between the economic centers of Basel, Bern and Zurich. In addition to the good accessibility, it is important to us that the two company headquarters are close to each other - Mägenwil is therefore an ideal choice for URMA," commented Urs W. Berner, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Urma AG.
Urma aims to create the largest competence center for industrial 3D printing in Switzerland. The new building will give customers a "unique insight into industrial innovation", Berner continued.
