A new building for the change of generations

back to Object of the month

Telma AG in Seftigen will continue to manufacture electronics for industry in the future - in the modern building with façade and canopy of Montana Building Systems Ltd.

The history of the industrial electronics manufacturer Telma AG began 46 years ago with the production of an electronic control system for commercial washing machines. Today, the company employs 35 people, who also realise electronics for industrial customers in the new building, which will be completed in 2020. The conversion is accompanied by a generational change: the previous business manager and co-owner Mario Bolla is handing over the operational management of the family business to son Adrian Bolla.

Economic and ecological aspects were taken into account in the planning and realisation of the building, for example heat recovery and the preparation of a photovoltaic system on the roof. The Telma AG building is located directly next to the triple gymnasium and the sports field. The use of the parking spaces by Telma AG and visitors to the sports facilities is optimally solved with mutual rights of use.

The façade of the new building consists of 1,000 square metres of MONTANATHERM® MTW V 140/1000 in RAL 9006, 9007 and 5010 (prism), the canopy of 90 square metres of SWISS PANEL® SP 44/1000 in RAL 9007 with fleece.
