On Wednesday morning, 12. February 2020, the exploreASEAN delegation had the opportunity to visit the DT Swiss headquarters in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. We would like to thank DT Swiss for their time and the creation of unique insights into logistics, quality management and the production of spokes, ratchets and wheels. We were able to see the companies focus on sustainability and water treatment, reusing up to 90% of the water again for production. It was expressive to see how the spirit of DT Swiss is enhanced by the exiting, dynamic and international environment. We are delighted to further develop this long-lasting relationship to such an important and internationally recognised Swiss company with already the third visit of exploreASEAN.
In the afternoon the delegation was able to look into the most important source of energy production for Switzerland - the hydro-electric power plants. The visit of the Flusskraftwerk Ruppoldingen which is operated by Alpiq provided some exclusive awareness in relation to environment and electricity. Especially impressive is that the company already took the environment into consideration during the construction process in the late 1980ties and early 1990ties with for example its restoration of the bypass waterpass or its "natural" fish ladder.
We promise to positively represent the core values of DT Swiss and Alpiq in the ASEAN region during our on-site trip.
