Mladen Vukanac, General Manager, Sauter Building Control

Smart Automation For IoT Buildings

Sauter Building Control has been ranked at the top of the world in the field of pharmaceuticals and laboratory control for more than a hundred years because it insists on high-quality solutions and services, reliability, technological innovation and know-how

Unlike the majority of other companies, Sauter is hiring new staff despite the unfavourable situation. According to announcements of new investment cycles in the construction sector, the company is making plans for next year, which is expected to surpass the successes of 2019 and 2020.

Switzerland is known as a country with high technological and industrial standards. How do you succeed in justifying such a status through your work and in implementing all those values within projects?

Precision, innovation, reliability, good management and high quality are just some of the values that are rooted in the national identity of Switzerland. When we add to that economic and political stability, and when we know that the Swiss federation is the best example of the development of federal relations in Europe, we are talking about a country that represents a positive example of social and economic order.

In our work, we insist precisely on the high quality of solutions and services, reliability, technological innovations and knowhow, but similarly, we also take care of socialisation through the systematic transferring of know-how, skills and habits to new generations.
When you’ve spent over a hundred years at the very top of the world in any field of business, you have a great social responsibility and an obligation to make your environment, and the country in which you reside, a better place to live.

The projects we’re working on in our country haven’t been stopped, and we are achieving a record turnover

By keeping pace with the latest trends in the fields of automation and digitalisation, where do you see possibilities here in Serbia for the use of your latest technological solution, “Modulo 6”, which is based on the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT)?

We see them everywhere. Digitalisation is unavoidable in all fields, including the sector of Building Automation. What’s important is that we are fully prepared to respond to all the challenges posed by IoT buildings with our solutions. Sauter’s “Modulo 6” is a guarantee of efficiency and accuracy, while it also brings economic benefits.

Our country isn’t lagging behind in terms of technological solutions, and Sauter’s engineers in Belgrade aren’t lagging behind any European country in terms of experience and knowhow. I can confirm this because I’ve had many opportunities to acquaint myself with solutions and projects across Europe and to convince myself of that.

What are the biggest challenges facing Sauter today and how do you approach them?

The current health situation is certainly something that causes concern. However, we are not waiting for better times, but rather are already actively involved in the fight against the virus, which is the biggest threat to society today. Specifically, Sauter is just completing the automation of the first factory for a Covid-19 vaccine, which is being built in Beijing. When the services of our company from Switzerland are being used for one of the Chinese state’s most important projects, that is impressive, but also certainly brings great responsibility.

We try to look at each situation rationally and to do the most we can at all times. We certainly analyse events that we cannot influence, but we don’t unnecessarily waste energy and time that we need to do something useful wherever that’s possible.
