Gema Switzerland GmbH, specialized in the manufacture of systems and equipment for industrial powder coating, celebrated the traditional topping-out ceremony for the construction of its new company headquarters in Gossau, Switzerland, at the end of September. Together with the contracted construction company HRS, the architectural office Thomas Mauchle, the executing trades as well as representatives of the Gema management, the guests were able to get a first impression of the new company building. Gema will move into the new premises in Gossau in the summer of 2024, where it will develop and assemble its well-known powder coating equipment and systems and ship them all over the world. In his speech, Felix Mauchle, member of the management board, thanked the construction companies, architects and specialist planners involved for their excellent work and emphasized the importance of the new building for the future development of the company. "We are very much looking forward to the new company headquarters, which will be optimally tailored to our needs. The building offers us and our employees state-of-the-art working environments with plenty of communication and meeting space, is technically up-to-date and provides enough space for our current and future growth. In addition, we remain loyal to our location in Eastern Switzerland. Our heartfelt thanks go to all those involved who contributed to the success of this project." The new building on the more than 20,000 m2 site paves the way for an optimized manufacturing structure and even higher production capacities. The production area will increase significantly compared to today and will once again unite all assembly groups, which are currently distributed externally across various locations, under one roof. The modern test and customer application laboratory will offer approximately 60% more space and be equipped with four modern coating lines. This will enable Gema to carry out coating trials for its global clientele even more efficiently and in a more practice-oriented manner.
