A+W acts

Many challenges of our future can only be mastered by joining forces. This is why we are involved in all the well-known associations in our industry. Where knowledge transfer is required, where training and further education takes place, we are happy to pass on our know-how. Due to our market position and reputation, many doors are open to us. We make our influence felt, but not for self-interested reasons. We are always concerned with the overriding issues, its relevance for the industry and significance for society.

Customer magazine «zB»

In our customer magazine, for example, we look at a current, industry-relevant topic from our everyday professional life several times a year. The "zB" No.1 on the subject of "energy optimisation" was already published in September 1993. We share our knowledge with customers, partners and other interested parties at the corresponding seminars. We deepen our knowledge and promote professional and personal exchanges through presentations by our own employees and other experts, as well as from teaching and research.

Measures for sustainability

Since 2017, we have explicit sustainability goals. With the sustainability report, we review their achievement annually and identify measures to achieve further improvements.

A+W lectured

Where knowledge transfer is required, where training and further education takes place, we are happy to pass on our know-how. Whether at universities, at conferences and events organised by associations or forums, at trade fairs or roadshows, we almost always have something to say and are pleased to receive numerous enquiries. Our experts* are happy to share their knowledge and experience with interested parties at home and abroad.

External commitment and sponsoring

In addition to our involvement in associations and clubs, we are also allowed to sponsor various projects. We support various renowned universities that educate the future of the engineering community as well as foundations with content close to our field of activity such as the Foundation Baukultur Schweiz. We also support professional exhibitions and competitions, educational projects for children such as archijeunes and events for adults with disabilities. Amstein + Walthert was also a sponsor of the Special Olympics Switzerland in 2021 and of PluSport, the specialist agency for sports for the disabled people in Switzerland.
