Christian Erik Thoeny / CEO
«Innovative, globally active, productive and well informed are the principles for our success and apply to our employees as well as to our partners and suppliers. The excellent interlinking between industry, education, research and politics in the Grisons, Switzerland and globally, make it possible for us to achieve continual optimisation in all our work processes. In this way, the University of Applied Sciences HTW Chur created a new study course in photonics based on the local industry. The course has now started successfully and will make it possible for us to recruit qualified graduates from this university in future.»
