Ground-breaking ceremony


A new company building for WAPRO is being built in Frutigen

On Friday, 21 June 2024, we celebrated the ground-breaking ceremony and from today a new company building will be built in Frutigen. The Wandfluh Produktions AG (WAPRO) project is being realised together with the railway company BLS AG and will provide the two companies with space on a total area of 10,000 m2.

WAPRO's last construction project was realised over 20 years ago. The company has grown since then and it is therefore high time to expand the space. The new building is the largest construction project in WAPRO's history. At five storeys, it will be the tallest building in Frutigen and will provide WAPRO with space for a new production hall as well as for production, storage and offices. BLS will house warehouses, workshops, workstations for its employees and meeting rooms in the new building. Photovoltaics and a heat pump will be installed on the roof and on several façades to supply the building with electricity from its own production.

It is planned that the employees of the two companies will be able to move into the new building in spring 2026.

A big thank you to our team, BLS and all the partners involved.
