Alleima expands its operations in Switzerland

To meet the growing demand for plated components used for electric mobility, the luxury industry, and medical applications, Alleima has decided to expand its operations in Switzerland. The manufacturing will be moved from Saint-Imier to a larger facility in Sonceboz, both in the canton of Bern.
The unit in Saint-Imier is an expert in electroplating, a surface treatment producing a metal coating. The unit also has a long history as a supplier to the luxury industry and these products can be found in several high-end fashion brands.
The project supports the transportation and medical segment and the increased manufacturing space from 500 m² in Saint-Imier to 4,000 m² in Sonceboz, Switzerland, will allow Alleima to become a major regional player in surface treatment.
The project includes an investment in a new, fully automated plating line that will provide surface treatment for electric vehicles and charging station connectors.
The transfer of the operations from Saint-Imier will be done step by step during 2024 with the target completion date of the end of 2024.
