Around 60 per cent of the globally harvested grains are processed on Bühler technology. Some 25 per cent of all engine blocks worldwide are made on Bühler Die Casting machines. However, digitalisation, the challenges of sustainability and the need for clean mobility are transforming the industries Bühler supports. To seize the opportunities of this transformation, Bühler plans to invest CHF 50 million in building a new innovation campus.
“Sustainability is at the core of our innovation and our actions, and with this investment we will strengthen our business focus on delivering sustainable solutions,” Ian Roberts, Chief Technology Officer of Bühler, said in a statement.
“We aim to drive business growth through innovations that contribute to a better future for many more generations to come,” added Stefan Scheiber, CEO of Bühler.
The construction of a new innovation campus is the next step in Bühler’s ongoing modernisation of its headquarters in Uzwil in the canton of St.Gallen. It aims at achieving best-in-class innovation, research, training and education, as well as production and logistics. In all, Bühler seeks to create an inspiring environment “to develop future technologies and digital business models,” said Schreiber.
Bühler describes these moves as a “strong commitment to Switzerland as a high tech centre and innovation driver”.
