RISC and Bühler+Scherler at the mova Scout Camp in Goms


​​​​​​​mova 23.07. – 06.08.2022

mova – the national camp of Pfadi Switzerland with international participants.
Approx. 30,000 people experienced a varied program and got to know the diversity of the Swiss Scouts.
The camp only takes place every 14 years, which makes the experience that much more unique.



is an association of the Swiss Scout Movement, which offers activities that take place by radio or via the Internet, which can be carried out by scout groups, for example during a camp.


RISC and Bühler + Scherler

At the request of the RISC president and project manager at Bühler+Scherler, Lukas Hungerbühler, Bühler + Scherler generously supported the RISC association at mova in the area of Maker (soldering kit) financially and with electrifying powerbanks.


The Maker – Workshop

At the Maker Workshop at mova, the young people were given the opportunity to assemble and program a kit themselves. The sponsored powerbanks served as energy supplier for the kits, so that texts and images could be displayed and even small LED light shows could be performed.

The kit was developed completely new for the mova 2022 (hardware and software). Interested parties and technology enthusiasts can further develop the kit themselves or program it freely. During the two weeks of the camp, around 400 participants took advantage of the offer.

More info on this workshop can also be found here.

Pronatec cocoa factory in Beringen (Switzerland)


About the new facility

Pronatec created a new type of cocoa factory in Beringen, Schaffhausen.

A purely organic production plant – and the first in Switzerland to produce all three semi-finished products: cocoa liquor, cocoa butter and cocoa powder.

15,000 tons of organic cocoa beans are processed annually. Thanks to small production lot sizes, production will be very flexible and will be able to produce specialties such as single origin cocoa liquor, low fat cocoa powder and multi-certified semi-finished products (e.g. EU Bio, Bio Suisse, Naturland, Fairtrade, Fair for Life, etc.).

The semi-finished products are an important basis for numerous foodstuffs, including chocolate, beverages and various confectionery and baked goods. Cocoa butter is also widely used in many natural, high-quality cosmetic products.

The new site in Beringen will gradually create around 40 new jobs.

The official opening of the plant will take place on September 16, 2022.
Production has already been running since May 2022.


Work by Bühler + Scherler AG

Bühler + Scherler AG was involved in the project for about 20 months.
We were responsible for the electrical engineering and, together with the electricians on site, coordinated the procurement of materials and the installation of the complete process cabling.
The installation from August 2021 to January 2022 presented a scheduling challenge.
But thanks to the good cooperation of all parties involved, the plant was completed on schedule.
Nice to know – in the whole plant about 60km of cable were laid and over 2.5km of duct were installed.

A day at the rescue service Appenzell Ausserhoden


Advanced thesis

Our former apprentice and new employee, Cyrill Weilenmann, wrote a very instructive and exciting thesis about the rescue service Appenzell Ausserhoden at the end of 2021.

He was allowed to accompany the rescue forces for one day and learned about different rescue techniques and means of rescue.

He also shows how the SVAR (Hospital Association Appenzell Ausserhoden) is structured, what the difference is between the professions paramedics and transport paramedics and how missions are prioritized by the control center and what this means for the rescuers.


The day with the rescue service offered Cyrill many different insights into the activities of the rescuers.

For example, the day began with checking the ambulance for completeness.
Throughout the day, the rescuers took on various missions; two patient transfers, a blue light mission to a patient with chest pain, and finally a patient with acute respiratory problems who had to be rescued from her apartment with a stair chair.
Shortly before work ended, there was even an accident with the ambulance. A car driver overlooked the ambulance and rammed it. That doesn’t happen every day…

Cyrill learned what it takes to be able to perform a job in the ambulance service:
“I’m impressed by what paramedics do on a daily basis and the calmness with which they work, even in critical situations. … I also realized that besides pure medical knowledge, many other skills are necessary.”

Enclosed is the complete thesis as a PDF to read through (in German).
