Manufacturing in the Greater Zurich Area

Switzerland is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry 

Technologies made in Switzerland are transforming design and manufacturing. Digital technologies, additive manufacturing, photonics, sensor technologies and process automation are making production faster, more efficient and smarter. The Swiss manufacturing industry is at the forefront of such trends.

Leading the way is the Greater Zurich Area, one of the most advanced technology and industrial regions in Europe. Here, global technology firms like ABB, Georg Fischer, OC Oerlikon, Bystronic, Siemens, PB Automation, Sensirion and Trumpf have become anchor manufacturing companies in Switzerland. 

A strong workforce and culture of innovation has resulted in robust industrial clusters across the Greater Zurich Area. There are centers of excellence in life sciences, robotics and technology.

Research institutions in the region like ETH Zurich, University of Zurich, CSEM, EMPA, IBAM, and inspire team up, collaborate and focus on an interdisciplinary approach. This makes the Swiss manufacturing industry not just a regional power, but a global leader as well.
