Mikron Tool has constructed a 1,000-square-meter, two-story production facility. This brings production area to a total of 3,500 square meters.
Elio Lupica, the new COO of Mikron Switzerland AG, Division Tool, inaugurated the new production facilities in the presence of the local authorities and representatives of the umbrella organizations AITI and Swissmem. The investments signify further growth of the Ticino production site and allow Mikron Tool to add additional production capacity.
But, that's not all. During construction, Mikron Tool replaced the old oil heating system with a state-of-the-art mixing plant for heat recovery from production. Mikron Tool ceased using fossil fuels in December 2021.
The outdated refrigeration system was also completely replaced. Thanks to this upgrade, 350,000 kWh of electricity will be saved annually. This is in line with Mikron Tool's commitment to environmentally friendly resource consumption.
The expansion of production facilities also provides advantages to customers. They will benefit from shorter delivery times thanks to increased capacity.
