Headquarters in Winterthur
Winterthur is the sixth largest city in Switzerland with a population of 110,000. It lies 20 kilometers to the east of Zurich and has a long tradition of manufacturing and engineering. Local industry pioneers such as Johann Jacob Sulzer, Johann Jacob Rieter, Charles Brown (Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works) and Walter Steiner (Stewi) have left their mark on the city of Winterthur and changed the world with their inventions and products. Former manufacturing factories are being continuously redeveloped and becoming a hotbed for thriving small, mid-sized and large enterprises while at the same time offering individuals trendy residential space. With the Zurich University of Applied Sciences and other practically oriented education facilities nearby, the transfer of know-how flows in both directions in this city. Winterthur is the perfect place for people with lots of drive and dedication who are eager to leave their mark on the future.
