Hochdorf completes restructuring

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-swiss-flag-2-image4852573The Hochdorf Group has announced that it has implemented its planned restructuring programme. Development, production and sales activities in Switzerland have been merged into Hochdorf Swiss Nutrition, effective from the new year. With immediate effect, the Hochdorf Group is now operating under the new name of Hochdorf Swiss Nutrition in Switzerland and for export business. The ERP operating system has also been implemented on schedule.

The company said that the aim of the restructuring programme is to simplify processes and structures as well as increasing cost transparency.

“The reorganisation will be evident to the international market through the new company name Hochdorf Swiss Nutrition,” said CEO Dr Thomas Eisenring. “The name uses the words “Hochdorf” and “Swiss” to emphasise the company’s origins. The word nutrition refers to the core business – the production of healthy foods and nutritional ingredients.”

Hochdorf Swiss Nutrition is active in dairy ingredients, baby care and cereals and ingredients:

Dairy ingredients: the development, production and marketing of various powdered products made from milk and whey

Baby care: the development, production and marketing of premium products in the area of milk-based products for mothers, babies, small children and juniors

Cereals and ingredients: the development, production and marketing of various VIOGERM wheat germ products as well as instant dessert products.

One of the greatest challenges in the restructuring project was in programming the ERP operating system.

“Thanks in large part to our own efforts, we were able to go live with a practice-oriented operating system (CSB),” said Eisenring. “The new organisational structure will firstly simplify many processes. Secondly, we will gain greater cost transparency thanks to user-pays cost allocation for the individual business areas. Thirdly, joint overhead costs will no longer apply.”
