Our Parent Company

Analog clocks are still produced at our parent company in Sumiswald to this day. Our parent company also produces master clocks and other products for time allocation, time synchronization, and time reference. A dedicated team of specialists in precision mechanics, electronics, and information technology is responsible for development and production. A total of around 150 employees work on site, of which around 20 are apprentices.

Who We Are is How We Lead

Leading means taking responsibility. At our home location in Emmental as well as at all other locations of the Moser-Baer group around the globe.

Under the leadership of CEO Reto Reist, a well-positioned management ensures smooth processes, fluid communication, and modern work conditions.

Together, this management team assumes responsibility for world-class performance as well as for a healthy balance between work and personal life for all employees.

Driven by our Values

Moser-Baer’s corporate culture has a number of values that form the basis for our daily collaboration with customers, suppliers, business partners, and coworkers.

Precision

Our customers and business partners receive customized answers and solutions at all times.

Impetus

We develop our offer step by step and initiate new ideas every day.

Drive

We lead our internal and external partners to the agreed-upon goals with clarity and consistency.

Passion

We are open and proactive; new solutions, implementations, and ways inspire us.

Responsibility is Important

Taking responsibility means more than a verbal commitment to a balance between work and personal life.

Our attitude is shaped by the knowledge that the success of a company depends heavily on what it does with its people, how it involves them in business, and what it offers them. Opportunities for promotion-oriented further training are just as much a part of this as a good feedback culture and solid conflict management.

In addition, we put a lot of effort into employee health and especially with regard to workplace safety.

At the same time, the goal of our long-term, sustainable thinking in the best sense of the term is to secure existing jobs and thus support the location and region. It goes without saying that we use regional suppliers whenever possible.

Constant innovation has turned our small watch company in a sleepy corner of Switzerland into a global group. We will let the numbers speak for themselves.

Sustainable Thinking

Conserving resources is one of the most important things we do. Moser-Baer is currently establishing a competence center that has the task of optimizing our processes with respect to sustainability. A step we have already taken was to stop outsourced processes that resulted in unnecessary CO2 emissions and to do as much as possible in house.

We work with certified raw materials and substances whenever possible. Our production is environmentally friendly. We produce as little waste as possible. The remaining waste is consistently sorted.

Rigorous Quality Thinking

Moser-Baer stands for Swiss quality. Our quality requirements are met by a strict quality policy and a comprehensive quality management system.

Rigorous quality thinking is in our blood. Our ultra-modern machinery and the most precise control instruments ensure absolutely flawless products. We keep up with the latest trends and also use the newest materials in the process. Carbon-fiber-reinforced materials, for example, offer completely new options for implant manufacturers.
