Dr. Annette Rahm, Managing Director of Nordmann Switzerland, comments: “Not only are we celebrating our own anniversary here in Switzerland, but our parent company is also commemorating 111 years of history. Celebrating together is twice the fun! Since our foundation, we have each followed our own unique and successful trajectories. Our growth and development has been made possible by the people who give their best every day and shape Nordmann with their knowledge and passion. We are grateful to our customers and business partners for their trust and support and look to the future with optimism.“

For over 20 years, JOYO has been offering children who live below the poverty line a chance at an independent, professional and personally-fulfilling future. The organization provides quality daycare with educational and emotional support.
