Embracing Solar Power: swissQprint's Leap Towards Sustainability

At Pozitive Sign & Graphic Supplies, we're not just passionate about delivering top-quality printing solutions; we're dedicated to advancing sustainability within the printing industry. That's why we're thrilled to share an inspiring milestone achieved by swissQprint, the renowned Swiss manufacturer of energy-efficient printers and a brand we proudly distribute in Australia.

Solar Energy: Powering the Future of Printing

In a significant stride towards eco-friendly manufacturing, swissQprint has successfully commissioned a photovoltaic installation at their headquarters in the Schützenwiese building complex, Kriessern. This solar power initiative began operation in February 2024 and is a testament to swissQprint's commitment to environmental stewardship.

Featuring 1,276 photovoltaic panels sprawled across the roof of their main production hall, this solar array is not just a part of the landscape; it's a powerhouse generating approximately 613,000 kWh of electricity annually. This remarkable achievement means that more than 50% of the electricity demand at the Schützenwiese business park is now met through solar energy, showcasing swissQprint as a leader in sustainable practices within the business community.

A Step Towards Self-Sufficiency

Beyond just powering their facilities, the photovoltaic system at swissQprint also energises eight newly installed charging stations for electric vehicles, highlighting a future-ready approach to sustainability. Reto Eicher, co-owner of swissQprint and the project coordinator, emphasises that this solar project marks a significant leap towards sustainability and electrical self-sufficiency, showcasing their foresight and commitment to green initiatives.


A Legacy of Sustainability

The foundation of swissQprint's headquarters was laid with sustainability at its core. Constructed in 2013/14, the Schützenwiese business park was designed to be independent of fossil fuels. Utilising groundwater for heating and cooling, and now, with the addition of solar power, swissQprint is setting a standard for eco-friendly manufacturing.

Swiss building standards are renowned for their precision, and the Schützenwiese complex exceeds these, particularly in terms of insulation and energy efficiency. Features like energy-saving LED lighting and saw-tooth roofs that maximise natural light not only reduce the dependency on artificial lighting but also underscore a commitment to minimising energy consumption.
