The customer magazine

The Oerlikon Group’s Surface Solutions Segment unifies the Oerlikon Balzers and the Oerlikon Metco brands. BEYOND SURFACES, our customer magazine, tells the story of our Segment - in stories for, and about our clients; in stories that are focused on our shared passion: Surface Solutions.

BEYOND SURFACES shows you, how, and for what our heart beats, and how people, markets and technologies merge to create this successful “story”, which is lived each and every day and with great passion within the Surface Solutions Segment.

  • Edition Winter 2021/2022

    Sustainability is an integral part of Oerlikon's strategy. As a global innovation powerhouse for surface technology, polymer processing and additive manufacturing, sustainability is not just a concept, but a living principle. The 10th issue of Beyond Surfaces is all about sustainability. In each article, you will learn about the diversity and possibilities in which this principle becomes a reality, whether customers are making it happen in their projects, employees in their daily work, in research projects or at the annual AMTC event. We spoke to Georg Stausberg, Chief Sustainability Officer, Oerlikon, and Dr Sven Hicken, Chief Technology Officer, Surface Solutions Division, to learn more about the background to communicating sustainability proactively and transparently as well as the sustainability goals for 2030.
