Swiss company Hilderbrand & Cie SA has rebranded as C Hafner & Hilderbrand SA. Along with this change comes a planned relocation of its facilities to the communal Espace Tourbillon, a five-building complex located in Plan-les-Ouates’ industrial park in Geneva, Switzerland. Hilderbrand expects its move to be complete by the first quarter of 2021.

The company develops and produces a range of fine spherical precious metal powders, which are especially suitable for use in Additive Manufacturing and other manufacturing technologies such as Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and powder spraying. Typical areas of application are jewellery and watches, technical or medical applications.

Since 2013, Hilderbrand has been part of C Hafner GmbH, Wimsheim, Germany, a company which supplies precious metal technology products and services. Along with its own experience, this position in the group allows the company to offer a full range of precious metals products. Thierry Copponnex, CEO, believes the new location will increase Hilderbrand’s visibility, allowing access to the wider Swiss market.

Having moved a short distance within the canton of Geneva, the company is now at the heart of the watchmaking industry, which is hoped will allow for more synergistic relationships between Hilderbrand and some of its consumers. Copponnex has stated that he hopes this location-facilitated collaboration will allow the company to further develop.

The final building in Espace Tourbillon is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
