On Thursday, Nov. 30th, the UNITECH Alumni Switzerland were invited to a company visit at the Bühler headquarters in Uzwil.
This was a great opportunity to look behind the scenes of this multinational UNITECH corporate partner that is active in 140 countries and is specialised in the production of machines for food processing and manufacturing of advanced materials.During the initial factory tour we gained lots of insights in the production processes and we were then welcomed by Bühler CTO Ian Roberts who gave a presentation about the vision on how Bühler can foster innovation inside and outside the company. We also learned about the importance of Bühler as a global player in the food processing industry and the responsibilities that come with this role. At the end of the visit some Bühler employees gathered with us for snacks and drinks and it was a good opportunity to learn more about the personal side of the people working at Bühler and to catch up with old friends.
