Headquartered in Môtiers in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland, ETEL S.A. employs close to 400 dedicated employees in research & development, industrialization, production, supply chain, quality, sales, marketing, and support functions. All design and production is performed at ETEL headquarters in Switzerland. It is essential to keep everything in-house to ensure the level of quality and consistency that our customers are familiar with. The “Swiss made” quality is based on the knowledge and technical expertise of a workforce that is highly-qualified; mandatory to the precision manufacturing of high quality products. ETEL is not willing to risk quality by outsourcing production.

With the largest direct drive motor range available on the market, ETEL provides solutions ranging from high-end motion systems with nanometer precision, to industrial applications requiring high torque/force. ETEL continually demonstrates its huge innovative force and leadership in components and systems based on direct drive technology. Our goal is to anticipate market needs and create successful new and innovative concepts, allowing us to maintain a competitive advantage. ETEL’s approach has been to focus on leading edge and breakthrough technologies; the success of which is only evident long-term. This philosophy is what continues to allow ETEL and its customers to be successful now and in the future.

What was considered as state-of-the-art a few years ago is now simply adequate and will soon become a barrier to the customer’s process, preventing it from reaching full potential. ETEL’s technology driven focus translates to industry leading products for the benefit of customers. ETEL breakthroughs ultimately work their way into the entire product range. ETEL’s range of linear motors, torque motors, position controllers, motion controllers, and motion systems products is substantial, providing a large selection to meet nearly all customers’ needs and providing them with process improvement they may or may not have been looking for. Maintaining in-house development and manufacturing for each product, ETEL keeps its know-how and guarantees high quality standards, reliability, and technological leadership to its customers.
