Kistler: On Growth Path
With sales growth over 11 % Kistler Group, Winterthur, Switzerland, achieved a sound result in 2011. With 235 million francs, the company managed to achieve the best result in its 52-year history in 2011.
At 260 million Swiss francs, incoming orders also exhibited a positive trend. This had already led the company to start expanding production capacities selectively in 2011. 85 new jobs across the group were created in the past year.
On 1 January 2012 the Kistler Group took over the business operations of Baewert Präzisionsmechanik GmbH based in Meerane, Germany. With 15 employees, Baewert produces piezoelectric pressure sensors for monitoring large engines, as well as safety valves and mechanical indicators. On the new site future production will focus on sensors and systems for large diesel engines.
