In 1964, Eugen Monnier and Robert Zahner established a company in the industrial area Safnern-Moos, which specialized in machine tools for the manufacturing of watch cases until 1972.
The watch crisis caused a shifting of the production to machines for the medical and dental industry. In this field, Monnier + Zahner AG reached worldwide a very high standard with machines to produce medical implants, such as bone screws and bone plates as well as artificial hip joints.
Other important fields of activity include the construction of grinding machines for dental burs and machines for the production of worms and gears for suppliers to the automative industry and gear box manufacturers. This also includes customized machines, adapted to particular needs.
2006 saw the integration of Lambert-Wahli Ltd. into the company Monnier + Zahner Ltd. Today, the staff of Monnier + Zahner Ltd. consists of approx. 70 people, apprentices included. The company takes great care in an extensive education of the young people. Ten to twelve apprentices in design, mechanics and electro-technicians receive their training at Monnier + Zahner Ltd.
Innovation, flexibility and a leadership based on the human dimension, motivates the team to achieve outstanding results. Best quality and after-sales service, qualitative instead of quantitative growth, constant dialogue with customers and employees are the ingredients with which the MZ management ensures the company’s success.
