Why did Network 41 pay a visit to Huawei in China?
Only European partner to receive an award

Network 41 presented with the Environment Health Safety (EHS) Award by Huawei

In February, Network 41 was presented with the EHS Award by Huawei at the Global Engineering Partner Convention in Shenzhen, China. Network 41 was the only European company to receive this award, which honours outstanding performance in the environment, health and safety sectors.


In February, Huawei – one of the world’s leading information and telecommunication service providers – invited guests to its headquarters in Shenzhen. In addition to presentations on sales figures and future developments, Huawei also handed out some awards at the event. In terms of global cooperation, Huawei attaches great importance to reliable, strong partners who – like Network 41 – place an emphasis on environment, health and safety, among other aspects. Pius and Fabio Krummenacher were delighted to receive the award. “An award like this makes me very proud and also demonstrates that we are on the right track for the future,” commented Chairman of the Board of Directors Pius Krummenacher.

As part of the convention, the invited guests visited the Huawei exhibition, where the latest technologies for controlling public spaces (“Intelligent Operation Center for City Management”) were demonstrated and experienced at first hand using virtual reality glasses.

Fabio Krummenacher sums up the visit as follows: “It was remarkable to see how many companies across the world are at such a high technological level and how fast digitisation has become part of our everyday life.”

Staying ahead of the game in terms of environment, quality and safety management!

What are the key success factors?
Prix SVC Central Switzerland 2016

The special Prix SVC award for Central Switzerland 2016 went to Network 41 in 2016

The SVC (Swiss Venture Club) has awarded the Prix SVC Central Switzerland ever since 2006. More than 90 companies in the region are assessed by the jury of experts according to precisely defined criteria, with only six qualifying for the final round. Network 41 was one of the finalists and is happy and proud to have received this special award at KKL Luzern.

It is not possible to apply for the Prix SVC: entrants are nominated by a regional jury made up of entrepreneurs, industry representatives and politicians from all the cantons of Central Switzerland.

In addition to proven performance, the main criteria are market standing, sustainability, innovative strength and regional roots. The nominated company has to be a key employer in the region, for example, as well as demonstrating the high quality of its staff and management and a sound corporate culture. The jury selects six finalists based on these hard and soft factors. In order to gain a personal impression of the companies, jury members then visit each of them on one day.

Stefan Furch, CEO is pleased to have received the award, saying: «For us this nomination is a good platform on which to present ourselves as an attractive employer that has embodied tradition and innovation for 30 years, and as an employer with well-qualified staff who plan, build and maintain the communication networks of the future.» Supervisory Board Chairman Pius Krummenacher adds: «It was very exciting to following the selection procedure close up, and we especially appreciate the SVC’s professionalism and network. And of course I’m very happy and proud to belong to one of Central Switzerland's leading companies.»

Tradition, innovation and motivation – the key to success!
