Coffee machine manufacturer Eversys has completed its move into a new production site in Sierre, Switzerland, which will reportedly treble the company’s production capacity.
According to Eversys, the new 7,250 square-metre facility encompasses both production and office spaces, and will also include a customer showroom, storage spaces, dining facilities and dedicated break rooms.
Approximately 150 employees will be based at the Sierre factory, and the company says it is now capable of producing 15,000 coffee machines annually.
Previously, Eversys’ departments had worked across four different buildings, and the company claims it was challenging to create a single corporate culture and vision as a result of this. Now, the entire company will be based within the Sierre site, a move which hopes to promote greater unity, teamwork and facilitate positive communication.
Eversys chairman and CEO, Martin Strehl, said: “Moving into our brand-new factory and in parallel introducing our new ERP solution, SAP, feels like moving from the 2nd National League to the Champions League of football in one step.
“We are all very excited and proud to be making this big move, which will allow us to continue our ambitious growth plans as well as to further increase our efficiency and quality.”
Jean-Paul In-Albon, Eversys co-founder and R&D director, added: “Our presence in Sierre will allow us to treble production capacity, reaching 15,000 coffee machines per year. We’ve even kept a reserve of land for further development, when needed.”
