Our mission statement

Smart

We are open to new ideas.

We are constantly optimising our products and processes. To do this, we experiment a lot and try unusual approaches.

We create jobs.

Our innovative offers for addressed advertising bring new jobs. Every printed and delivered advertising mailing strengthens Switzerland - whereas most of the money spent on online advertising goes abroad.

We support our employees.

As a growing company, we offer our employees perspectives. Vacant or new positions are first offered to existing employees. We invest in the development and know-how of our employees.

Postal

We believe in the future of the letterbox.

No medium in Switzerland reaches more people than printed mail. Addressed advertising in the letterbox is expected, read and triggers purchases - today and tomorrow.

Everyone should be free to choose their mail service provider.

The residual monopoly for letters up to 50 g is outdated and must be abolished. It leads to excessive postage prices, harms the Swiss printing industry and destroys jobs.

We'll make it simple.

We convince our customers with straightforward products and reasonable prices.

Services

Every consignment counts.

Our primary goal is the punctual and proper delivery of all consignments entrusted to us.

We know our customers.

We invest a lot of time to understand what our senders' needs and challenges are. We know the recipients' letterboxes and respect their wishes for delivery.

We want to be the better choice.

As a young company, we have to convince with a better price-performance ratio. We achieve this through innovation and consistent quality management.
