Ruchti Aerni is broke: cheap windows cause hardship

The February wage is paid. What is coming in March is unclear. The Thun window and metal manufacturer Ruchti Aerni is broke. 220 employees are affected. It is the third bankruptcy of a window manufacturer within a short time. The St. Gallen company Swiss Windows deposited their books last week. Favorol Papaux was in need in the canton of Friborg.

Three companies with financial constraints, three mass layoffs, around 500 people suddenly without a job. The start of the year was promising. The order situation at the Ruchti Aerni company was good, as the window manufacturer Daniel Gugger (47) says to BLICK. Orders worth CHF 1.6 million were on the table in January, according to the mid-forties, who have been with the company for almost a decade.
