Winterthur, 2 December 2016 – Kistler seeks more than 40 specialists in what is likely Switzerland's largest job advertisement. Constant growth, jobs to be filled and the second-time award of Winterthur's job creation prize in the "Absolute job growth category show that Kistler Group is successful.
National and international growth curve
Headquartered in Winterthur, the Kistler Group has been growing both nationally and internationally for many years. Growth is not confined to the number of sites, there are also constantly rising staffing requirements. This is no coincidence, as continued growth reflects the enterprise's preparations in the wake of new trends (e.g. digitization of the value chain, Industry 4.0, electrification in the automotive industry etc.), which Kistler has initiated in various sectors. This year more than 50 new jobs were created locally (615 FTE) rising to 130 (1569 FTE) worldwide. Anyone spotting what is likely to be Switzerland's largest job advertisement at Winterthur's main train station will know that Kistler is still actively scouting for forty (measuring technology) specialists.
