Karine Galland on what she sees as Bucher Vaslin’s contribution to society
Shaping the history of winemaking
In the 2021 annual report, we are focusing on the value our divisions create for society. How do we contribute to the world we live in, both today and tomorrow? To answer this question, we’ve handed the floor over to our employees. Read on to find out what Karine Galland sees as Bucher Vaslin’s objective.
“Our products have a long life cycle. But what if consumer demands change? Retrofitting lets us implement new features on our customers’ existing machines. That’s good for their budget, the environment and consumers – the people.”
“We’re focusing on research and development to help tackle the challenges of our time. We’re making our products increasingly efficient so they require less and less energy and water. We call it our ecological transition journey.”
“How can people continue to share the joy of high-quality wine, even despite the unpredictable impact of climate change on vineyards? We’re exploring how innovative machines can solve this challenge for our customers.”
At Bucher Vaslin, we have been delivering high-quality grape presses, filters and reception equipment for more than 100 years. As we offer long-lasting products, we put an emphasis on retrofitting. We strive to anticipate consumer needs and regulatory developments and accelerate innovations to meet future demands.
We offer excellent services – services that are critical to customers’ operations at harvesting time. We’re committed to helping people experience the joy of high-quality wine, now and into the future.
Karine has been working with Bucher Vaslin since 2015, inspired by its 100-year history combined with its autonomy and the strength of the Group company Bucher Industries. Despite her manifold duties as an industrial manager, she appreciates that there is room for close dialogue
with customers, oenologists in the field and colleagues on site, which makes the working culture at Bucher Vaslin particularly special. Bucher Vaslin’s constant drive to innovate, with the aim of remaining a world leader, is what keeps her motivated.
