In 1969, Oskar Thüler, a physicist full of innovative ideas, founded the company mb-microtec ag. A new success story began with the creation of self-luminous light sources. The young pioneer successfully developed and marketed a new technology, which works entirely without batteries or charging through external energy sources.
In terms of the precise mass production and the small dimensional size of the resulting product, this technology represented the dawn of a new microtechnical era.
The first close industrial collaboration followed shortly after, at the start of the 1980s. The company’s microtechnical and chemical knowledge was combined with applied knowledge from different industries and led to the creation of a wide range of successful products.
mb-microtec now markets three brands (trigalight®, traser® swiss H3 watches and GlencaTec) and has about 100 employees. Reliability, quality, sustainability, flexibility and speed are the company’s top priorities. Each year, mb-microtec produces millions of components that combine chemistry and technology and which inspire the worldwide customer base with their outstanding functionality and aesthetics.
