London, United Kingdom, 2012/01/30 - TESA SA is announcing investments of more than 3.5 million Swiss francs during 2012, reaffirming the intention to modernize its Renens site - HexagonMetrology.com. Nordic Exchange: HEXA B
The TESA SA management team stresses once again its attachment to its historic Swiss site and its commitment to ensure sustainability: in 2012 the company plans to invest approximately 3.5 million Swiss Francs.
The aims of TESA are to remain at the forefront of an extremely competitive market by benefiting from the experienced and highly qualified workforce offered by the region.
"The situation remains difficult for the entire export industry and work still needs to be done to find solutions, but a technological company that no longer invests is doomed in the medium-term. We have the opportunity to benefit from the support of the Hexagon group, which acquired TESA in 2001. The number of our employees increased by approximately 30 in 2011 and this was in spite of the high cost of the Swiss Franc and the financial gloom. The creation of a clean room and significant logistic investments, have also contributed to improving the competitiveness of the Renens site. points out Martin Hedman, Director, TESA SA.
During Spring 2012, a new galvanoplasty hall (chrome-plating, nickel plating) will be inaugurated. This will replace today's currently outdated hall and will be entirely automated. This project represents an investment of more than 1.5 million Swiss Francs.
"The new area will comply with the strictest of environmental and safety regulations, in the context of attaining the excellence that TESA has now embodied for more than 70 years", stresses Joël L’Her, production director.
