IWC’s new technology centre construction progressing fast

| No comment
On last May 5th, IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the completion of the major structural work at its new production and technology centre with a topping out ceremony during which the work of those involved in the construction was acknowledged.


From next October, the production departments for cases and parts for movements will be gradually relocating to Merishausen, a municipality in the canton of Schaffhausen, along with the department where the movements for IWC-manufactured calibres are assembled.

Representing the biggest ever investment in the history of IWC, the new building will create space for the production of both existing and new IWC-manufactured movements, including the 69000-calibre family.

Covering a total floor area of 13,500 square meters, the new building will offer the possibility to bring together production areas that were previously spread out across different locations and thus to further optimize the existing production process workflows and structures.

Once construction is complete, the Merishausen site will provide workspace for around 400 employees. Along with around a hundred craftsmen, the topping out ceremony was also attended by numerous high-profile representatives from the world of politics and business. The production departments for cases and parts for movements which are still located in Neuhausen will be relocated to the new building from October 2017. Then in January, the movement assembly department will be moving from Baumgartenstrasse in Schaffhausen’s old town to Merishausen. The official opening ceremony is scheduled for June 2018, along with an open day for the people of Schaffhausen. The events will coincide with the 150th anniversary year of the brand founded by Florentine Ariosto Jones in 1868.
