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.
