Glutz expands into the industrial components sector

To mark its 150th Anniversary, Glutz expands the industrial components sector.

 
Glutz, the leading specialist for punched and deflection parts, has taken over over the business operations of von Dach Technik AG in Lyss, thereby consolidating the industrial components sector at its location in Solothurn. With the signing of the contract on 05 September 2013, the intensive sale negotiations were successfully finalised. The extensive know-how, the efficient machine park and the longstanding customer relations with von Dach Technik AG will be merged with Glutz on 01 January 2014.
 
The firm von Dach Technik AG has produced first class products in sheet metal processing and in the production of punched and formed parts for over 80 years. "Glutz was an ideal candidate for the continuation of our business activities. We are convinced that this constitutes the best solution for our customers", declared Executive Director, Robert von Dach. In addition to the access systems sector, the industrial components sector is an important business area for Glutz. In taking over von Dach Technik AG's business activities, Glutz is strengthening this sector at its location in Solothurn. "We believe in the locational advantage of Switzerland as a business location and are convinced that we will continue to grow with the industrial components sector", declared Peter Riedweg, CEO of Glutz AG.
 
A success story is continued
With the acquisition of the business activities, Glutz takes over the entire production department as well as the modern and efficient machine park from von Dach Technik AG.  For the employees this is associated with a change of workplace from Lyss to Solothurn but in turn they gain a progressive, caring and reliable new employer. In future, the employees will also not have to do without the current Deputy Managing Director of von Dach Technik AG. Together with the staff, he will join Glutz on 01 January 2014 and will be responsible for the business development of the industrial components. "Glutz will continue our longstanding success story by taking over a large number of our workforce, securing our production location Switzerland and continuing our solid customer relations ", said Christoph von Dach, Assistant Managing Director and Operations Manager of von Dach Technik AG. This is also confirmed by Werner Gertsch, COO Manufacturing: "Customers of von Dach Technik AG benefit from the meaningful supplement of Glutz products to the line of goods they are familiar with and competent consulting from a single source".
 
150 years' experience
Glutz is one of the most traditional Swiss corporations. This year, the firm is celebrating its 150 years' anniversary and is the leading specialist for reliable and innovative access solutions. To date, Glutz, with its 270 employees, is still in the hands of the founding family.
