Sweet relocation pleasure
In the scope of the "backhaus" project, the complete Wernli plant was relocated from Trimbach to Malters and completed with state-of-the-art production equipment at the existing main site.
The BAUBERGER team handled the mechanical and electrical dismantling and move-out in Trimbach as well as the transport, move-in and re-assembly in Malters. The five production lines were relocated in individual stages, each taking about five weeks and involving up to eight employees.
Thanks to very detailed planning by the project team consisting of specialists at HUG and BAUBERGER, as well as the smooth cooperation of various plant suppliers and other craftsmen, the very ambitious goals were achieved on time.
HUG's company history started more than 140 years ago in a bakery in Lucerne. The foundation for success was set by Josef Hug-Meyer in 1877 with the invention of rusk. Since then, countless other cookies such as Läckerli, Willisauer-Ringli, DAR-VIDA Crackers, catering cookies, frozen snacks and Bricelets have been added, partly through company takeovers. With the acquisition of Wernli AG from Trimbach in 2008, the assortment could be expanded in an optimal way with chocolate-containing cookies. Choco Petit Beurre, Japonais and the Jura wafers were invented at Wernli.
