About us: Many years of international experience

Founded in response to the refugee crisis of the Yugoslavian wars in 1992 we quickly learned how to adapt to new challenges that come without a warning. In the second half of 2015 we have created more than 30 reception centres. We hired and trained more than 1,000 new employees within only a couple of months. 

In Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Germany we have learned to adapt to very different requirements of our contracting authorities. This experience puts us in a position where we are able to establish and maintain

  • initial reception centres
  • long-term accommodation centres
  • repatriation centres and
  • emergency shelters.

Therefore, we invest heavily in our workforce and have one of the largest training programs in the industry. Find more details on our...
