Business Center ENERGY
A real success story. The excavation work has barely started and the new ENERGY Business Center is already fully rented out. Because of Olten’s clear advantages of location, as e.g. its highquality buildings, its central geographical location and the proximity to the labor market, two divisions of SBB (Swiss Federal Railway) have independently decided to reorganize their central services in Olten. These are SBB Cargo and SBB Infrastructure. By the end of 2014 around 900 people will be newly working in Olten and have the opportunity to get acquainted with the picturesque city and its amenities. We would like to thank the ENERGY owners and initiators for their entrepreneurial and far-sighted action.


Erich Lagler – Winner of the Milestone Olten 2013
The illustrious league of important personalities has a new member. Erich Lagler, CEO of the SBB industrial plant, received the Milestone Award 2013 and therefore the honor to be the "Ambassador of the Year". The prize was submitted during the "Ambassadoren Meeting" on the 27th of November 2013. In 2004 Erich Lagler took over the lead of the industrial plant. Soon he introduced the japanese method "Kaizen" and improved the operating processes continuously. With his important work he developed the industrial plant as well as the CenterCity Olten. With more than 500 employees the IW Olten ist the biggest SBB plant in Switzerland. 


PR for the Business Location Olten
The project CityCenter Olten has been successfully developing since its start in the year 2010 and, due to specific marketing activities, the business location Olten is constantly increasing its name recognition and attracting more and more interest. Thus the year 2012 was marked by numerous PR activities and high media presence; for example in the SWISS Magazine - high up in the sky with Michelin-starred chef Reto Lampart, in the Swiss Equity Yearbook 2012 of the NZZ or on Swiss TV in the SRF “Schweiz aktuell” documentary: Schweiz aktuell vom 29.10.2012


swissbiolabs „Where Science meets Business“
Another great success was the international conference Microscon 2012, which took place for the first time. Around 300 participants from all over the world seized the opportunity to get new impulses and to discuss interesting issues on the subject of Micro-Biotech. Congratulations on this achievement to the initiators Dr. Patrick Schwarzentruber and Dr. Nicola Di Maiuta. The Business Development Organization of the Olten area took advantage of the conference to launch a new project as an incubator for companies working in the domain of biotechnology. The aim of «swissbiolabs» is to support the formation of regional start-up companies working in the field of biotechnology, by means of financial services and promotional programs.
