In the past, approximately every two years Essemtec has increased its headquarters production space in Aesch, Switzerland. In July 2008, Martin Ziehbrunner, CEO of the fast growing enterprise, invited for another celebration. This time an architecturally interesting new building was opened that includes not only production space but also office rooms and a large, friendly canteen.
The personal side of the business is important for Essemtec. Therefore, the celebration was split into different occasions: A User Group Meeting for know-how exchange with the customers, an in-house exhibition, a suppliers day and an open day for friends and relatives.
The new two-storied building has been optimally designed into the available space, and has an interesting footprint. The FLX and CSM production department is occupied by the ground floor. Engineers and product managers find lots of room for good ideas on the first floor. Large windows flood the rooms with daylight.
With more than 100 employees, the old presentation room was very crowded during company meetings. This is why a large canteen has been realized in the new building, offering enough capacity for bigger events. Staff and management are enthusiastic about the new workplace. Martin Ziehbrunner, CEO, said, �We are rapidly growing. Unfortunately, workspace always stays a little bit behind of that. We are happy that the new building has been finished in time. However, the utilization factor at the present location has now reached its limit. For further enlargement, we must look for other possibilities.�
