The Saurer Group believes it can create up to 40 jobs over the next years and is currently advertising around 10 vacancies, with the first candidates already been found. â€œOur return to the roots of the Saurer textiles group is inspired by the pioneering spirit of our founders. Here in Arbon, Franz Saurer developed the first hand-knitting machine in 1869, built the first automatic embroidery machine in 1912, and conquered the world with his modern trucks from 1905. We aim to plot our course in this spirit of energy and innovation once again.â€ said Anton Kehl, Chief Technology Officer of the Saurer Group. Anton Kehl says: â€œNew developments in Industry 4.0 offer great opportunities for a group like Saurer. We aim to exploit these new opportunities, and to evaluate how they can be used to the advantage of our customers. Our vision is to become a smart industrial solutions and services provider, and the Saurer technology centre will undoubtedly make a valuable contribution to helping us achieve this.â€
The technology centre in Arbon will work closely with existing research and development departments of the Saurer Group and this joint approach will be guided by Saurerâ€™s central development philosophy that is summarised in the formula â€œE3+Iâ€, which stands for â€œEnergy, Economics and Ergonomics plus Intelligenceâ€.
