LUZI fragrance compounds is planning to put up a new building on 11,000 square metres of land close to its current headquarters in Dietlikon-Zurich, thereby expressing its commitment to Switzerland as a business location.
The Swiss family-owned company is investing in a modern new building in Dietlikon where it wishes to set new benchmarks with innovative building technology and state-of-the-art production facilities.
LUZI fragrance compounds is on an expansionary course. The headquarters building, soon to be 50 years old, was constantly expanded over the years. Owing to the company's strong and constant growth over the past years, the Executive Management has decided to put up a new building with production facilities, a creative centre, laboratories and administrative offices, using state-of-the-art technology to ensure that the company becomes more competitive and more innovative in future.
Commitment to Switzerland as a business location
The new building is a clear expression of LUZI fragrance compounds' commitment to Switzerland as a business location. The long-standing and experienced employees are an important company asset and have a high priority for the family-owned company. "Of course personnel costs are high in Switzerland. But as ongoing digitisation (industrialisation 4.0) and automation will substantially improve productivity, the spotlight will fall more on infrastructure and the quality and flexibility of the labour market," says Roland Altenburger, CEO Switzerland.
The planned building, production facilities and laboratories will meet the most stringent standards in regard to ecology, environmental compatibility and efficiency while at the same time improving the comfort of the employees. "It's important to us to keep the company's ecological footprint as small as possible and to offer our employees an attractive working environment," says Roland Altenburger. The new building will enable the company to remain innovative in the long term and offer its customers sustainably produced and creative fragrances of the highest quality.
"If no objections are filed against the project and the official building permits are issued without delay, it should be possible for us to move into the new building at the end of 2022," says Jürg Koller, Global CEO LUZI fragrance compounds and manager of the building project.
