2011 will be a milestone anniversary for Essemtec as the Swiss company becomes 20 years old. Essemtec has grown from a small business to an international provider of production systems.

For Martin Ziehbrunner, CEO, an anniversary is similar to an award, of which Essemtec has won several throughout the past 20 years: An acknowledgement of good performance and an incentive for the future, but not a reason to relax.

This dynamic has been characteristic for Essemtec since its founding in 1991 by Alfred Ziehbrunner, the father of today's CEO. With inexhaustible creativity and strong target-orientation, the Ziehbrunner family has turned the small three-person company into a leading machine manufacturer.

Twenty years ago, Essemtec mainly distributed small devices for electronics assembly. Today, in addition to electronics, the company offers production systems across numerous other industries, including LED manufacturing, solar, medical technology and aerospace. Additionally, there are many customers from other industries for which Essemtec develops and builds customer-specific systems.

For the company’s 20-year anniversary, Essemtec plans a mid-year celebration at its headquarters in Aesch, Lucerne, Switzerland. The company plans to continue to invest in the development in the future so that 20 years may turn into 25+ years and more.

The Swiss machine manufacturer Essemtec is a market leader in manufacturing flexible production systems for industrial users. Essemtec has been developing, manufacturing and marketing equipment and machines for all processes in the electronics industry since 1991: printers, dispensers, pick and place and soldering systems. Manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic systems are available. The range of products also includes transportation and storage systems, as well as software solutions for planning, simulation optimisation and documentation of manufacturing. All Essemtec systems are optimized for maximum flexibility. The user can switch from one product to another in no time, thus making maximum use of the available production capacity. Essemtec - Be more flexible.
