Valtronic Switzerland officially opened a new 1600 sqm state of the art orthopaedic production facility across the street from its headquarters in the Valley de Joux.
“Thanks to great team spirit and commitment of the whole team the move worked out ideally and validation of equipment went according to plan,” stated Dr. Martin Zimmermann, Director of the Precision Manufacturing Center. “The mechanical workshop is now up and running in an improved environment and we are looking forward to improving our services for existing customers as well as starting new partnerships.”
The new building will host production, finishing, control, receipt and storage capacities as well as an engineering and logistics office. It provides the company’s customers with access to increased capabilities such as finishing services and added equipment for medical implant grade plastics such as PEEK. It also offers separate areas now for medical and industrial manufacturing and improved process flows.
Commitment for the future
“Building this new facility is the next step in growing our presence in the Orthopaedic market” Dr. Zimmermann commented. “Our increased investment in the market began with the acquisition of Geisert Square last year. This new building is a strategic investment with a clear focus on growing our global orthopaedics business with full service design and manufacturing and a commitment to providing the market with expertise needed to make Smart Implants a market reality.”
