Aebi Burgdorf - the future grows continuously

At the turn of the year a new chapter will begin for Aebi in Burgdorf. The company, which until now has operated from what almost appeared to be scattered locations all-around the inner city with virtually no expansion potential, will move into a production and administration building that has been constructed according to very modern criteria. The Holding is investing CHF 28 million, approx. EUR 19 million, for this leap into the future. The new two story building on the 26,000 suare meter plot of land will have a partial basement, a base area of 11,330 suare meters and an actually usable floor space of 16,700 square meters. The external dimensions of the building provide a great deal of space for setting up optimal production: The building is 175 meters long and 64 meters wide. Additionally a small warehouse, a car parking area, covered bicycle stands, a wash area and grass areas will be constructed.

In the new building, three assembly lines will be built according to the very latest knowledge. This optimizes all processes for Aebi. Up until now the space situation made assembly line production impossible. Thus the internal logistics chain within the company will also change. "Everything will be optimised", announced the Executive Board cheerfully at the ground-breaking ceremony. But one thing will not change: "We will maintain our high standard of quality."
