Working for Angst+Pfister is my first experience in an international group. I was used to work in family companies and I appreciated to find the same state of mind with a good team spirit. The Angst+Pfister slogan “you will never walk alone” is particularly true. I have all the support I need to fulfill my job, from the French team but also from Zurich with the great technical support of Group Engineering. A lot of my customers recognize that the technical support we give them really makes the difference. Angst+Pfister also gives me the opportunity to improve my technical knowledge and also my English level with regular sessions. With the present situation with Covid-19, Angst+Pfister is there for us since the beginning and provided us all the necessary to protect us and our families, this is not the case in most of others companies and it is really appreciated.

Be it a call from challenging customers, for whom I am often the first contact person, or working with the apprentices.
