Loepfe Invest in its Corporate Headquarters in Switzerland – Developed and manufactured in Switzerland – this is one of the key USPs (unique selling proposition) of products from Loepfe Brothers Ltd. The company announced a substantial investment in the extension of its headquarters in Wetzikon, Switzerland. Construction of the new headquarters building, which will add two additional stories on top of the existing production building, started earlier in July.

With a total of 2,500 m2 floor space it will have enough room for some 60 offices in combination with modern meeting facilities and a canteen for the employees. The building will accommodate the general management, R&D, the service teams, product management, financial management, and HR.

Loepfe highlights Swiss-based operations

“The new building will open up the opportunity for all departments within Loepfe to further grow, to work together much closer, to enjoy modern offices and labs and to offer customer and supplier trainings in state of the art facilities.”, says Daniel Link, CEO of Loepfe Brothers Ltd., during a barbeque, which was organized to celebrate the official start of the construction phase for the new building together with Loepfe´s staff.

The extension will be built in a modern wooden construction, which reflects the commitment of the company to environmental sustainability. With the investment in its headquarters Loepfe renews its commitment to the Swiss based operation. The new corporate headquarters is also a strong sign to present the company; as a modern and attractive high tech employer in the region. “We are looking forward to a promising future in the coming decades here in the Zurich Oberland region”; says Daniel Link.

Loepfe invest to a greener future

The management of Loepfe Brothers Ltd. decided to increase the efforts of the company in relation to environmental sustainability. “We commit ourselves to save resources, to increase energy efficiency of our processes and products; and to reduce the environmental impact in general”, says Silvano Auciello, Head of Sales and Marketing.

The company already started several activities towards a greener future. A contract has been signed with the utility provider, guaranteeing that electrical energy will be supplied only from renewable sources. The wave soldering process in the production of circuit boards will be eliminated step-by-step. As a result the energy consumption and the amount of tin-solder needed will be reduced significantly.

The use of isopropanol in electronics manufacturing will be reduced as well. Packaging of Loepfe´s product will not be of foamed polystyrene in the future. The non-biodegradable material will be replaced by cardboard or reusable packaging. Also small measures are currently implemented in Loepfe´s headquarter in Wetzikon. For example, waste is not only consequently separated; but also picked up by a certified disposer to minimize the environmental load.

As a result of all measures the carbon footprint of Loepfe´s products; and of the company as a whole will be much lower in the future. “We are confident, that we are on the right way to a much greener future of our company”; underlines Silvano Auciello.
