In 2003 Profatec AG was founded in Malans. For more than a decade, the company has now been offering specially moulded plastic solutions for various industries, such as the automotive and pharmaceutical industries.
For the further growth of the company, injection moulding should then be added to the range in 2007. This should lead to higher profitability and further targets.
In most cases, small companies will have to resort to manufacturers in the Asian market in this case. Companies like Profatec cannot always quickly provide more space and hire additional employees. In order to be able to grow production in Switzerland nevertheless, the company turned to Universal Robots with the question of production automation.
