Bellach, October 12, 2021 - The two high-tech companies Agathon AG and SWISSCO Präzisionswerkzeuge GmbH are deepening their cooperation. By establishing a subsidiary of Agathon in Germany, an efficient, customer-oriented and sustainable sales structure in Baden-Wurttemberg, Pfalz and Saarland is to be ensured.
Agathon AG, a pioneering manufacturer of standard parts for machine, tool and mold construction, has maintained a close cooperation with SWISSCO GmbH from Baden-Württemberg since 1977. The company, headquartered in Leonberg, is active in the fields of standard parts as well as grinding, clamping and measuring technology and has so far taken on the role of a standard parts representative for Agathon in Germany. The cooperation between the two companies is now to be intensified in order to be able to serve customers more comprehensively by combining their respective competencies. For this purpose, Agathon is founding a new German subsidiary, Agathon Deutschland GmbH, with the aim of ensuring a customer-oriented sales structure in the long term.
Agathon Deutschland GmbH will commence its operational business activities as of January 1, 2022, with its registered office in the premises of SWISSCO in Leonberg. The employees of SWISSCO GmbH will support Agathon Deutschland GmbH in the areas of sales, service and administration. With regard to the product portfolio, Agathon Deutschland GmbH will in future serve customers in Baden-Württemberg, Palatinate and Saarland in the standard parts sector, while products for grinding and dressing technology will continue to be sold directly by SWISSCO GmbH.
Both companies are pleased about the deepening of their partnership. Tina Funk, Managing Director of SWISSCO GmbH, sees "great potential for synergies" through the intensified cooperation. Michael Merkle, Managing Director of Agathon AG, is convinced that the new sales structure will enable the two companies to serve their customers even better and more sustainably.
