EMCH Academy

Acquiring and securing know-how as the basis for long-term success Today, personnel development is increasingly geared to the competitive environment and the resulting demands on employees. Knowledge is becoming obsolete ever faster driven by technical innovations, new products and further developments in processes flows. In this field of tension, EMCH is working hard every day to the latest state of the art. And so, with the establishment of an inhouse academy in 2020, EMCH has established the most suitable, systematic training for EMCH employees, especially for the technical area (service field service, installation and technical specialists).

«Assembling a lift is like a challenging puzzle. Once, in Oetwil am See near Zurich, my job was to install a round order was to install a round glass elevator. I was given a box of material. The site manager asked me what that was. "This is the lift." He didn't believe it, but I began to assemble it step by step. He was amazed.» – Fritz Wittwer (since 1989 Assembler)
«Bei EMCH hat man ein offenes Ohr für die Anliegen der Architekten. Hat das vielleicht damit zu tun, dass sich in der Emch-Crew Leute befinden, die selbst Architekten sind? Sie verstehen, dass gerade bei Umbauten und denkmalgeschützten Häusern die Schachtgeometrien häufig zwingend vorgegeben und fast immer äusserst knapp sind. Und trotzdem ist es EMCH noch immer gelungen, mit gescheiten Ideen ein Optimum herauszuholen und ganz nebenbei auch noch schöne Lifte zu bauen. Das Wort "unmöglich" habe ich in diesem Zusammenhang nie gehört.» Elisabeth Boesch, Martin & Elisabeth Boesch Architekten ETH SIA BSA, Zürich
«Der hängende, vollverglaste Lift in der Alkoholverwaltung Bern, ausschliesslich auf Zug beansprucht, stellte 1995 die aussergewöhnliche Innovationskraft der Ingenieure von EMCH unter Beweis. Technische und handwerkliche Meisterschaft verbinden sich zu einer zeitlosen ästhetischen Kraft. Als es darum ging, eine Verbindung zwischen der Kirchenfeldbrücke und dem Schwellenmätteli zu skizzieren, erfand das unter Architekten hochgeschätzte Berner Unternehmen einen – leider nicht ausgeführten – Bogenlift, der den halbkreisförmigen Bögen der Brücke folgte. Futuristisch und atemberaubend, der Zeit weit voraus.» Rolf Mühlethaler, Architekt BSA SIA, Bern
«Mich fasziniert die Arbeitsweise der Firma EMCH. Schon während der ersten Sitzungen machen sich die Beteiligten das Projekt zu eigen und setzen alles daran, die Vorstellungen und Ideen des Gegenübers zu verwirklichen. Bei EMCH gibt es kein No-Go; immer steht die gemeinsame Suche nach der besten Lösung im Vordergrund. Daran hat sich während meines Berufslebens nichts geändert – seit gut 25 Jahren profitiere ich in der Zusammenarbeit mit EMCH von der Begeisterung, der Professionalität und den reibungslosen Abläufen.» Martin Gsteiger, dipl. Archtekt HTL SIA,3B Architekten AG, Bern
«EMCH passt zu mir. Die Fachleute sind wie ich daran interessiert, für jedes Projekteine spezifische, originäre Lösung zu entwickeln und nicht einfachheitshalber frühere Ausfertigungen zu kopieren. Für EMCH und mich gibt es jeden Lift nur ein einziges Mal. Diese Offenheit gegenüber Neuem, diese Freude an Innovationen und diese Bereitschaft, Versuche zu wagen, überzeugen mich. Gemeinsam gelingen Produkte, die den technischen Anforderungen eines Baus genügen und mit meiner Architektursprache harmonieren.» Tilla Theus, Architektin ETH/SIA/BSA, Zürich
«Vom Amtshaus Bern zum Swisscom Businesspark in Ittigen – zwei Generationen Glaslifte: Im Jahr 1980 entwickelte unser Büro mit EMCH für das Amtshaus Bern, an der markanten baulichen Schnittstelle zwischen dem Alt- und dem Neubau, den Prototyp des allerersten Glaslifts in der Schweiz. Der Glaslift setzte dort für die vertikale Verbindung in der Anlage ein signifikantes Zeichen und erleichterte den Besuchern die Orientierung im Haus. Diese in all ihren Facetten gelungene Zusammenarbeit mit der Firma EMCH konnten wir 32 Jahre - eine ganze Generation - später mit Bernhard Emch bei den Glasliften im Swisscom Businesspark Ittigen weiterführen. Auch hier ging es wieder darum, der vertikalen Verbindung im zentralen Atrium des Gebäudes einen angemessenen Ausdruck zu verleihen und die Fahrt im Lift zu einem kleinen Erlebnis werden zu lassen. Diese erneute Zusammenarbeit hat zu einem grossartigen architektonischen und ästhetisch bis ins letzte Detail ausgereiften Ergebnis geführt. Wir sind gespannt auf die weitere Zusammenarbeit, vielleicht mit der nächsten Generation.»
«Als innovativer Architekt bin ich auf kompetente Spezialisten angewiesen.Die Zusammenarbeit mit EMCH ist immer hervorragend. Neue, unkonventionelle Ideen werden aufgenommen und mit grossem Fachwissen konstruktiv weiterentwickelt und umgesetzt.Sowohl in der Projektierung als auch in der Realisierung ist EMCH für mich einwichtiger Projektpartner.» Andreas Ramseier, Ramseier & Associates Ltd., Zürich
«Das Besondere ist bei uns alltäglich, denn wir haben uns auf Liftanlagen mit aussergewöhnlichen Anforderungen spezialisiert.»
