Aqua-4D celebrates 15 year anniversary in style

by | May 31, 2019 | Media - News |

 

To mark 15 years since the company’s establishment, Aqua-4D hosted a celebration at its new headquarters in Valais, Switzerland.  Around 100 guests gathered on the roof, with the Swiss mountains providing a breathtaking backdrop. It was a chance to present the company’s progress as well as to say thanks to some of the organizations, institutions and individuals who have played a key role in the cleantech company’s development.

“We are delighted to welcome so many people to our new building, which marks a new phase of development for the company,” said CEO, Eric Valette. “It’s also a chance to pay tribute to those who have helped our company to grow in the way it has, with presence in 40 countries across 5 continents.”

Valette took the chance to give particular thanks to Paul-Andre Vogel of Cimark, who he said had believed in the company from day one in 2004, and Jaques Métrailler, Director of the Funding and Finance Centre of Valais for their support in many forms.

In a speech, Eric Bianco of Business Valais praised the company’s progress: “I’ve had the chance to follow the development of Aqua-4D from a baby through adolescence to maturity today. It was clear that you had an innovation which could contribute something important to the international market, and as entrepreneurs, you have created value for the area in selling your innovation all over the world.”

With locally-sourced wine from the vineyard a stone’s throw from the new HQ, the guests raised a toast to 15 years of progress and internationalization, and looked towards many more years of sustainable growth.
