Schlieren (Zurich) - Zühlke was able to acquire the space from Swiss Prime Site Immobilien AG as an anchor tenant in April. Since Monday, 8 June, the new building at JED has been coming to life as the first employees return to the office after working from home as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Zühlke moves into its new site in Schlieren
Innovative service provider Zühlke has successfully moved into its new site at JED in Schlieren. Thanks to the flexible architecture and innovative environment, which was once home to the printing press for the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ), the company can continue to grow.
Innovative environment for successful projects
Nicolas Durville, CEO of Zühlke Switzerland, said the following about the company’s move to the former premises of the NZZ printing press: "Our new home represents an enormous opportunity for a company like Zühlke. The flexible architecture, open space, and innovative environment promote dialogue between employees but also with customers and partners. This will allow us to realise multidisciplinary customer projects even better in future and make our success visible".
Peter Lehmann, CEO of Swiss Prime Site Immobilien, adds: "The amount of courage it took to invest in this empty building has paid off. It is an impressive example of how an industrial space can be preserved by transforming it into a modern work environment, which is completely in line with the wishes of our anchor tenant Zühlke".
