Defying Corona: Collaboration and new job creation in Burgdorf
Yellowcamper AG and Citroën Switzerland today announced a joint collaboration project, creating up to 35 new jobs in Burgdorf BE in the near future. The agreement aligns the expertise of Yellowcamper AG, a leading camper rental and conversion firm with the automotive manufacturing expertise of Citroën Switzerland to design and build camping vehicles in serial production.
An important advantage for this strategic collaboration is the quality and expertise of Citroën Switzerland, a brand of the Emil Frey Group. Yellowcamper AG will lead production of the all-new Citroën SpaceTourer Camper, which will be available at more than 100 garages across Switzerland starting in January 2021.
The management of Yellowcamper AG is delighted with the successful development of the company. We consider ourselves fortunate not only to be able to maintain jobs during these difficult times, but also to further expand our operations in a sustainable way. -Fabrice Moser, CEO Yellowcamper AG
Yellowcamper AG credits its rapid growth to their ability to build a close connection with the camping community, using real customer feedback to continuously develop new products that meet and exceed expectations. Yellowcamper AG has built up an extensive customer network, integrating marketing and communication know-how to continue attracting camping and leisure enthusiasts.
In recent years, freedom, adventure, and the connection to nature are increasingly popular themes amongst Swiss people. Due to the recent coronavirus situation and resulting restrictions, the need to explore safely, flexibly, and independently has only grown. As such, Yellowcamper AG is focused on delivering products that support adventurers in a variety of ways. Yellowcamper AG is busy ramping up production capacity to deliver several hundred vehicles per year.
Partnership with Citroën Switzerland
With this collaboration, the Emil Frey Group has committed to investing in Switzerland as a production center, generating up to 35 new jobs in Burgdorf BE in the next few years. In addition to the ongoing development and production of the campers, Yellowcamper AG will assume responsibility for large parts of the marketing and communication on behalf of Citroën Switzerland.
The all-new Citroën SpaceTourer Camper was designed, developed and built at Yellowcamper in Burgdorf BE. With a bit of foresight and the overwhelming desire to meet the ever-changing needs of adventurers, Yellowcamper AG has quickly grown to become a market leader in camper rental and conversions since 2016.
