SCHURTER AG incorporates Ticomel SA
Since July 1, 2012 (retroactive to January 1, 2012), the Ticino-based company Ticomel SA has been officially operating under the name SCHURTER AG. During the 6-month transition period, SCHURTER has integrated that company into its existing infrastructure, for instance into its SAP enterprise software, and also made significant investments in the expansion and renovation of the production facilities.
The Mendrisio location has been completely networked with SCHURTER AG since mid 2012 and is operating under the name the EMC-EMS Competence Center. The strengths of SCHURTER AG have led to valuable synergies in the quality of products and services, development, manufacturing, sales and strategy. Those who profit from this professionalism are not only customers but also the more than 80 employees of the former Ticomel SA, who continue to be employed by the company. All areas of expertise in the manufacture of high-quality industrial electronics have been integrated into SCHURTER AG.
With this new EMC-EMS Competence Center, SCHURTER AG is strengthening its manufacturing and development location in Ticino. Already among its customers are well-known companies from the areas of industrial automation, machine construction, instrumentation, photovoltaics and medical technology.
The technologies and areas of expertise are divided into two strategic business units.
First, the EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) area develops and manufactures 1- and 3-phase power-line filters, chokes, coils and wire-wound components for customers around the world. It principally develops customer-specific solutions based on standard products for ensuring electromagnetic compatibility. A customized measurement service rounds out the what the company offers.
Second, the EMS (electronic manufacturing services) area fabricates electronic modules. Starting with consultation, through the production of printed circuit boards and to proof of concept and final delivery – SCHURTER AG places its focus on customer-specific electronic manufacturing services for the Swiss and northern Italian markets.
