(Marchtrenk/Rotkreuz, October 25, 2021) Ten years ago, experienced industry experts founded TGW Systems Integration AG in Rotkreuz, Switzerland. Sustainable growth, satisfied customers and successful projects have made today's TGW Switzerland a leading player in planning, implementation and support of highly automated logistics centres.
The first year after the founding saw the team land what was then the largest order in TGW's history. Grocery giant Coop trusted the expertise of the young TGW subsidiary for building its new national logistics centre in Schafisheim, Switzerland.
With over 240,000 m² of floor space, the highly automated complete system encompasses various areas and temperature zones. The record-breaking project was an impressive starting point for TGW Switzerland.
In the years following, the team led by active founders Thomas Kretz and Beat Losenegger established TGW as a highly capable system integrator and reliable partner. "We couldn't be more pleased about our successful development. It serves as impressive proof that we made the right decision by giving the Swiss market its own subsidiary with all the necessary specialised expertise, bringing us as close to our customers as possible", says Johann Steinkellner, Chief Executive Officer TGW Central Europe.
The list of companies that rely on TGW Switzerland's expertise is considerably long. The list includes various companies within the Coop Group, Interdiscount (one of the leaders in the Swiss home electronics market), Digitec Galaxus, building systems specialist Meier Tobler, Möbel Pfister furniture, music company Thomann, OPO Oeschger (a wholesaler of hardware and tools) and coffee machine manufacturer Thermoplan.
The team of over 30 experts is focused on the areas of system planning, project management and Lifetime Services. For planning and implementation, the location collaborates closely with the headquarters in Austria and the international TGW units. As part of Lifetime Services headed by Hanspeter Egli, system support is given by experienced on-site experts and mobile technicians directly from Switzerland. They ensure that the highly automated systems run reliably around the clock and with maximum performance.
"What an exciting journey the last ten years have been, including many milestones along the way", says Thomas Kretz, Managing Director TGW Switzerland. "We intend to keep writing our success story – 2021 saw us again land major contracts with big-name Swiss companies. Our thanks to all the colleagues for their effort and dedication, without which our success would not have been possible." We are already looking forward to the next decade."
