Brügg, Switzerland, 11 December 2018 – Oerlikon Balzers Coating S.A. in Brügg, the Swiss branch of leading surface solutions provider Oerlikon Balzers, officially inaugurated its new INGENIA series PVD coating system on 27 November. Staff at the coating centre in Brügg have provided outstanding service over the last few years and the number of orders has steadily grown, with the result that additional capacity was required.
INGENIA, one of Oerlikon Balzers’ most successful PVD coating systems, perfectly complements the centre’s existing equipment. Delivered in mid-October in order to meet the growing demand, not only does the system provide additional coating capacity, it also improves flexibility and enhances the overall service, as Andrea Hürlimann, CEO of the customer centres in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, explained: “The INGENIA’s small coating chamber allows us to reach a full batch load more quickly. As a result, whereas we could previously only offer certain coatings at less frequent intervals, we can now guarantee quick delivery times to meet specific customer requirements. The INGENIA is a high-output system, which is another huge benefit for us.”
For the official inauguration ceremony in Brügg the on-site staff were joined by management from Balzers headquarters in Liechtenstein and the Management Team from the Liechtenstein and Switzerland national affiliates, who cut the red ribbon. A delighted Marc Desrayaud, CEO of Oerlikon Balzers, said: “Our customers’ success is the highest priority for us, and the site in Brügg is a shining example of how high-quality service and quick delivery times can help us meet that goal. After all, our customers will only get maximum benefit if we can deliver the very best quality when they need it. I wish to personally thank our staff, without whose expertise, enthusiasm and commitment this success would not be possible.”
