Zund expands its headquarters

Zund digital cutting systems are in high demand all over the world, and the Swiss technology manufacturer is growing accordingly. In need of more space, the company is investing in a building addition as part of an initial expansion.

Zund Systemtechnik AG's history is a remarkable success story. Since Karl Zund founded the company in 1984, it has grown continuously as well as sustainably. Zund and its nine subsidiaries now employ more than 400 people worldwide. More than 200 of them work at the company's headquarters in Altstatten, Switzerland.

In order to meet growing space requirements, Zund, in a first phase, is investing in a building expansion. The three-story addition will provide room for customer service and R&D. "The ground floor will be used for training and conference rooms as well as a cafeteria for employees and visitors," explained CEO Oliver Zund at the groundbreaking ceremony. Environmental concerns are a high priority for company founder Karl Zund. Both the building exterior and the landscaping will be "greened" with surfaces that absorb water runoff. The plans for natural landscaping are a logical continuation of a long-held company philosophy and, according to Karl Zund, offer additional advantages: "Creating natural shade in the courtyard fosters both pleasing environmental conditions and aesthetically appealing meeting spaces." Zund Systemtechnik AG is making this contribution to the mindful use of resources out of conviction. Karl Zund also notes that customers are becoming increasingly concerned with how and where their machines are produced and demand responsible treatment of people and the environment.

Additional expansion plans

Concurrent with the start of the first construction phase, planning is also underway for a new assembly and logistics building. The schedule for this project is ambitious, with a goal to move into the new facility in 2022. The reasons for the large space requirements stem from the way digital cutters have developed over time. "In the early days, the average machine occupied little more than a square meter. Today the average size is much greater, with a trend for even bigger machines in the future," explains Oliver Zund. This affects space requirements across all divisions of the company.
