SWAN’s 25th Anniversary

11-06-2016 – SWAN celebrated its 25th anniversary.
As part of the celebrations, SWAN marked its anniversary with two events inviting the public, customers, suppliers and distributors from all over the world to its headquarters in Hinwil, Switzerland.
The first of these events was an Open Day where company tours were given to its guests to provide a first-hand and an in-depth impression of SWAN’s capabilities. Various inter-company departments had the opportunity to explain the processes and stages which each product passes through before being shipped. They got to see the story behind the instruments and innovation at the R&D department where the cutting edge of new ideas are being developed.

Further highlights were the visiting of the immaculate craftsmanship of sensor manufacturing, the assembly of the final instrument and the wet bench.
This proved to be an exciting experience, showing the region’s most innovative and progressive side.
The program was completed with a company presentation of SWAN Systems’ engineering services.

The second day of the program was the absolute highlight for SWAN and its employees, where colleagues from all over the world were flown in to come and celebrate the company’s 25th birthday. The magnitude of the event in combination with some great weather were the perfect ingredients for an amazing atmosphere. Circus Monti was hired to help shape this day to something that will be remembered for a long time to come by building 2 huge tents outside of the headquarters. The ceremony commenced with drinks and social interactions followed by a sit-down dinner and fantastic performances of the Monti acrobats.
