General enterprise IWB IWB is the result of a merger between gasworks, waterworks and electric power stations. Today, IWB employs about 800 persons. IWB is the biggest power supply company of North-West-Switzerland. According to product type, they supply between 110,000 and 395,000 inhabitants with electricity, water, natural gas, long-distance energy and operate a garbage incineration plant. Their service area for electricity and long-distance energy is limited to Basle-Stadt (BS), whereas water and natural gas are distributed both in the city and region.
In the last few years and in the course of various restructurations, IWB has been developing from a classical supply company into a regional service industry. The classical core business of power supply was complemented by other business fields like alternative energies and Telecommunication Services.
The far-reaching changes within the last few years are particularly due to the heavy pression caused by the forthcoming opening of the Swiss electricity market. A variety of organisational subdivisions have employed new people for the development, promotion and distribution of these newly created products.
