Schertler and Hemargroup collaborate to produce next-generation, 100% Swiss Made product

Schertler’s decision to move production of its amplifiers and small PA systems from Italy to Switzerland will result in the company’s entire product range being “100% Swiss Made” by the end of 2019. The move has also necessitated a search for new suppliers who can work with Schertler to maintain the quality that has distinguished the brand for more than three decades. The company’s recent quest to find a new high-end electronic components supplier has, rather fortuitously, ended in Mendrisio itself as Schertler embarks on a new collaboration with Hemargroup - also based in the city.  

Renowned for its high-quality electronics manufacturing services and leading-edge technologies, Hemargroup offers Schertler the opportunity to further improve and optimize its products going forward. The company has recently introduced several improvements in its production method like, for example, fully automatic SMD and THT production lines and including a digital control procedure of every production process, thus applying single-piece-traceability as a standard production quality guarantee.  

We are delighted to be able to work with Schertler - a true leader in the field” says Patrick Schär, CEO of Hemargroup. “This new collaboration between our two companies not only results from necessity and passion, but also from the fact that we are virtually neighbours. Our geographical proximity is highly advantageous in allowing easy, direct communication, as well as enabling us to create new prototypes and products with a much greater flexibility, guaranteeing a wonderful 100% Swiss Made result.”  

Stephan Schertler, CEO of Schertler adds: “With such a major reorganisation underway, it was vital for us to find a supplier of electronic components and services who completely understands our attention to detail and our focus on quality. We are therefore delighted to be working with Hemargroup and look forward to a really successful collaboration.

On a recent visit to Hemargroup, Schertler staff were accompanied by their Chinese distributor, Ethan Cui, who commented: “Schertler was already on top and it was difficult to imagine that things could be better. But now I realize that this move to Switzerland will significantly increase the quality of the products.
