The IWC new manufacturing center is located in Schaffhausen’s valley “Merishausertal” and will create space for the production of both existing and new IWC-manufactured movements, including the 69000-calibre family. Equipped with the latest production technology, it will deliver the highest possible level of quality and precision and help to ensure that the luxury watch manufacturer from Schaffhausen continues to experience global growth.
The new building with a total floor area of 13,500 square meters presents an opportunity to bring together production areas that were previously spread out across different locations and thus to further optimize the existing production process workflows and structures. The company is also creating room for further growth with the new space. Once construction is complete, the Merishausen site will provide workspace for around 400 skilled employees. The official opening ceremony is scheduled for June 2018, along with an open day for the people of Schaffhausen. The events promise to be one of the highlights of IWC’s 150th anniversary year.
