Equipment maker Bühler Group plans to build an innovation campus in Uzwil, Switzerland to increase the firm’s innovation and technology capabilities.

“The disruptive changes in the business and technology represented by digitization, the challenges of sustainability, and the need for clean mobility are now transforming the industries Bühler supports,” a May 8 press release announcing the plan explains. “To sieze the opportunities of this transformation, the company will establish the finest innovation campus in its industry.”

Construction of the site is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2017, with completion projected some time in 2019. Bühler said it is investing CHF 50 million, or about $49 million USD, over three years to erect the facility.

“We aim to drive business growth through innovations that contribute to a better future for many more generations to come,” Stefan Scheiber, the compnay’s chief executive officer, said in a statement.

The new facility will include upgraded technology labs and a collaborative center, along with research, training, production, and logistics capabilities.

“We will create an inspiring environment to develop future technologies and digital business models in close partnership with our customers, start-ups, academics, engineers, and scientists,” said Scheiber.
