Chiron Group acquires Mecatis SA, a specialist in small, high-precision machining centers

The Chiron Group acquired Mecatis SA with headquarters in Isérables, Valais, Switzerland. Mecatis is a specialist for small, high-precision machining centers, which are used in the watchmaking, medical, jewellery and micro engineering industry.

Mecatis, established in 2007, designs, builds and maintains machining centers for the high-speed cutting of micro-technical components. The highlight of the product range under the brand Factory5 is the Micro5, launched in 2017, a compact and innovative machining center with 4 or 5-axis, which customers use for the fast and precise production of their different components. All Factory5 products are consistently marketed digitally via the platform.

Both partners profit from the acquisition. From now on, Factory5 machining centers will be sold worldwide by the Chiron Group. The entire service network of the corporate group will also be available to Factory5 customers.

“The Chiron Group is expanding its technology base with the acquisition. The high-precision machining centers from Factory5 perfectly complement the Chiron product range below the 08 series. With them, we are strengthening our offer for the precision and medical technology industries. This means that we can now optimally meet the demands of many customers for compact, highly dynamic machines for small components,” explained Dr. Claus Eppler, Managing Director R&D at Chiron.

With the acquisition, the Chiron Group is now present with its own companies in 10 countries outside of Germany. All Mecatis employees will be transferred to the future Chiron Swiss SA and continue to care for the products of the Factory5 brand. Samuel Vuadens, the former owner and CEO of Mecatis, has been appointed the Managing Director of the new company.
