Schär Druckverarbeitung AG moved from Rothrist to a newly constructed building in Wikon in summer 2017. The entire manufacturing system, with folding and punch machines, saddle stitcher and cutting lines is connected to a disposal system from Hunkeler Systeme AG. Manual disposal is a thing of the past.
Planning a new industrial complex from scratch can be very advantageous. For Paul Bucher, the owner of Schär Druckverarbeitung AG, the greatest advantage was that he could organise everything exactly to the requirements of his business operations. Especially important was: because folding machines, rotating punches, gang stitchers and cutting lines had to be moved in stages from the original site in Rothrist to Wikon, so had production to be moved in stages and connected to the disposal system. Only so could it be ensured that production during the move, in Rothrist as well as in Wikon, could continue with the minimum of disturbance. Suppliers who could offer this kind of flexibility were guaranteed a placing on Paul Bucher’s list of favourites.
