Social commitment with the Solvita Foundation
alpinewhite.ch is convinced and is committed to ensuring that people with disabilities also have the right to work. That is why we have been working together with the Service Centre of the Solvita Foundation for some time now.
With over 600 jobs and a turnover of around 27 million Swiss francs, the Solvita Foundation is one of the largest institutions in Switzerland and an important economic factor in the region. It creates a living space for people with mental, physical, psychological or multiple disabilities and offers school, training, retraining, work and/or residential accommodation.
The Solvita Foundation's service centre in Urdorf, which is run on a business basis, is financed around half from the income from its own work and is certified to ISO 9001.
For us, the Service Centre is like an external department which takes care of a large part of the fulfilment for us. Of course, this means that our alpinewhite.ch team is in daily contact with the service centre staff.
An example of the partnership-based cooperation: After the delivery of the Alpine White products to the service centre, the warehouse management (incoming goods, outgoing goods, inventory), the ordering via e-shop (packaging of the products with delivery notes) and the handover to the shipping service provider (post, DHL, etc.) takes place.
The warehouse management, picking and shipping to Alpine White customers is a great, varied and meaningful job for the employees.
