Production - Made in Switzerland

Our strive towards excellence makes us your ideal partner. We succeed by relying on long-term supplier relationships, and ensuring steady improvement towards the quality of parts.

SWAN understands that quality cannot be achieved without employee commitment. Our very skilled and motivated specialists are wholly dedicated to delivering results. As well as this, SWAN employees acknowledge the value of self-responsibility to attain flat organisation structure, and pleasant and convenient working conditions.

In-house manufacturing is necessary for critical parts. Every sensor and instrument has been developed and manufactured at SWAN's headquarters in Switzerland. From the machine part, to the final assembly, each stage of manufacture undergoes rigorous quality control procedures. No instrument leaves the company without a final testing under real conditions.

Only by these diverse quality checks, can we follow our principle: every instrument must perform to the full satisfaction of its user.

History

SWAN was founded on January 1st 1991 by a group of experienced engineers (chemists, physicist, electricians, software developers). SWAN focuses on the development and manufacturing processes of analytical instruments for monitoring the water quality.

Initially, only 10 people worked for SWAN, including the founders. They primarily concentrated on swimming pool and sanitary water applications, as well as waste water treatment. Following this however, SWAN very quickly set the standard for the control of many other water quality parameters.

As such, the company expanded their activities to the power generation market (water-steam-cycle monitoring) and semiconductor industries. With entry into the power market, the rapid growth of SWAN started.

During that time, the company SWAN Systeme AG emerged from the original SWAN Analytische Instrumente AG. Customer-specific requests for projects, overall projects and systems led to the foundation of SWAN Systeme AG.
