The Waldau building, surrounded by greenery, is the new headquarters of PackSys Global. An ideal place to work, designed to provide the best conditions for the employees to achieve the highest performance and quality in the design, procurement and assembly of our machines. The 8,000 square meter site in Rüti has been converted into a truly unique, world-class manufacturing and office location that prioritises the environment in terms of design and sustainability.
The design of Waldau and its utilities had the primary goal of using as little energy as possible, drawing power mainly from the 1,500 solar panels on the roof of the building.
With this state-of-the-art photovoltaic system, we are self-sufficient and generate around 70% of the building’s energy needs when working at maximum capacity. During the hours when production is closed, the energy generated by the building is supplied to the city of Rüti.
Furthermore, more than 1960 meters cubed of concrete (410 tons of CO2) have been saved in the construction of the foundations and the building has been constructed using the innovative Cobiax method, one of the best and most eco-sustainable insulation methods on the planet.
It should come as no surprise to anyone, that our architects and interior designers strove to bring nature inside the building to create an ideal working environment in every way.
In addition, the building uses intelligent lighting and air control to produce a dynamic, energy-saving lighting and air system. It is also equipped with energy monitoring devices to ensure that consumption remains sustainable.
Finally, The building has charging stations for bicycles and electric cars completing what is now called: “An eco-sustainable and intelligent building”.
Our company is now more than ever, involved in caring for the environment and doing our utmost to contribute to a better world. We are aware that working with a material such as plastic is not highly regarded in this day and age, yet without all of those products held in plastic containers, would we really be able to enjoy as comfortable lives as we do now?
We believe that it is not the waste that you produce that is the problem, yet how you handle it. We are responsible for recycling and reusing it in an appropriate and swisstainable way.
In our company we are always looking at ways to reduce plastic use and our engineers have a responsibility to design technologies that benefit the environment’s longevity. This year we are publishing our sustainability report together with the Brückner Group, of which we are part, and also with our highlights and achievements in the area of sustainability.
As we always say, “Swisstainability starts at home”. We cannot support such statements without adhering to it first in our own home. That is why with Waldau, we are proud to say that we are more eco-sustainable than ever before.
