CEMEX, Electronic Arts, Kyphon and Microsoft on September 20 will receive Tell Awards for Switzerland’s most significant inward investment projects by North American firms in 2006, reports Mario Brossi of the Swiss Foreign Investment Agency Location: Switzerland. The awards are named for the Swiss legendary hero William Tell. This year Autodesk will receive a special recognition for ongoing expansion and corporate citizenship.
Ambassador Urs Ziswiler will present the awards during the Embassy’s 6th Annual Alumni Garden Party. The first Awards were presented in 2004 in a program recognizing projects in four categories made by U.S., Canadian and Mexican firms, Mr. Brossi said.
For 2006 the award for the most significant expansion goes to Mexico-based cement company CEMEX for increasing the size of its R&D facilities in Biel/Bienne.
