The Industry Division acts as the ‘service centre’ for the other FONES divisions (foodstuffs, energy, therapeutic products, logistics, ICT), providing the industrial material and equipment required for supply processes.
The division is headed by Urs Näf and comprises three sections:
The sections keep ‘watch lists’ of material and equipment, which are reviewed periodically for their procurement risk. They devise measures (e.g. economic agreements, supply agreements, supplementary compulsory stocks), to ensure that the materials and equipment can be safeguarded in a crisis.
