“Johnson & Johnson has invested over a billion dollars in its facility in Schaffhausen over the past 2 decades.”

Cilag AG was founded around 80 years ago in Schaffhausen. With a workforce of approximately 1,200 staff, it is now the largest private sector company in the canton. Since the 1990’s, Johnson & Johnson has invested over USD 1 billion in new plant and technology at the Schaffhausen site.

“We continue to feel very much at home in Schaffhausen”, says General Manager Diane Black. “For us, key elements which make Schaffhausen attractive are the strategic geographical location including proximity to Zurich International Airport as well as easy access to the talent pool of potential staff just across the border in neighbouring Germany”, she explains. Other attractions of the area for Cilag AG are the positive financial climate, the International School, the ease of access to local government departments and the exceptional quality of life.
 

“Easy access to the talent pool of potential staff just across the border in neighbouring Germany is very important for us.”

Schaffhausen facility seen as valuable asset in the global entreprise
Cilag AG has been part of Johnson & Johnson since 1959. Within the global entreprise, Schaffhausen is a strategically important facility for the aseptic manufacture and packaging of parenterals (pre-fillable syringes and vials) and related products. “Some of Johnson & Johnson’s top pharmaceutical products are made in Schaffhausen”, Diane Black confirms.

 

“We really appreciate the high level of commitment and very professional support we receive from the Economic Promotion Team!”

Since the 1990’s, Johnson & Johnson has invested over USD 1 billion in new plant and technology at the Schaffhausen site. That is clear evidence of the value placed on the facility within the global entreprise. “Over the years, the canton’s Economic Promotion Team has always been on hand and has helped with a wide variety of projects, both large and small”, General Manager Diane Black clarifies. And adds: “We really appreciate the high level of commitment and very professional support we receive from the Economic Promotion Team!”

Relations with the municipal and cantonal authorities are also extremely positive. Access to departments in local government is very simple and fast. The same applies to elected members of the local government in the city and the canton. “That’s an enormous help when you are looking for a quick and pragmatic solution to an issue”, Diane Black says with conviction.
