Successful throughout the world – at home in Switzerland

Headquartered in Môtiers in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland, ETEL S.A. employs close to 350 employees. The dramatically increasing requirements in terms of dynamic and accuracy of positioning systems for special applications at the end of the 1990’s persuaded DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH to acquire ETEL to increase their competitive advantage in different high-end markets. For ETEL and its customers, the synergy between direct drive technology and advanced measurement systems has proven to be a winning combination. However, all design and production is performed at ETEL headquarters in Switzerland where engineers and scientists develop the technological fundamentals and products today that will transform the world of our customers tomorrow, and also stimulate science and research.

In addition, with all product-critical components we place our trust in the "Swiss made by ETEL”. Outsourcing those components both at present and in the future is not an option for us. In addition, the partnerships with companies belonging to the HEIDENHAIN group have allowed ETEL to merge its respective knowledge, know-how and expertise. This collaboration has secured ETEL’s position as technological leader. This is why production professionals find an environment with us in which a great deal can be achieved.

Global success and roots at a national level is the constellation offering not only our company but also our employees’ optimal chances, an enormous range of exciting tasks and workplaces that remain safe in future years.

And that's not all...
