IWC gets green light to extend manufacture site


IWC Schaffhausen has won the trust of locals surrounding its Merishausen production site in Switzerland, after it put forward plans to expand its manufactory in a project that will take three years.

IWC is one of the area’s biggest employers and has invested a large amount of money into the Schaffhaus area. The plans to now extend its production facility will bring a number of jobs to the area, while the company plans to invest CHF 25 million (£17.3m) in the area. The project is expected to begin in 2015.

Georges Kern, chief executive of IWC, said: “Around 750 people work at the central headquarters [and] we’ve created more than 300 jobs in the past ten years – including 250 in the last five alone. [We] have invested around 100 million francs in the site.”
