Bühler’s Innovation Campus is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019, according to a statement from the St.GallenBodenseeArea company. The company’s existing technology labs will be upgraded and a new innovation building will be built. The three-storey modern building will be home to various Bühler project teams, and one floor will be dedicated exclusively to collaboration between different employees. The innovation building will also feature an auditorium for large events and a media centre.
“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.
Collaborative innovation is front and centre in the new campus, according to Chief Technology Officer Ian Roberts. “We are creating a collaborative space for all functions, all ages and all knowledge holders. It will allow us to live and foster our innovation culture and test future work practices.”
The Innovation Campus will bring together Bühler’s network of customers, be they customers, startups, academics, apprentices or suppliers.
“We are creating a space that brings together visionaries and long-term thinkers of the start-up scene and universities with engineering teams that hold Bühler’s long-standing applied and tested know-how in processing technology. By combining both, we can truly create innovations for a better world.”
