The company's succession is facilitated by the support of Mr. René Zufferey, who remains in constant contact, in the interests of passing on the baton.
Yann Zufferey was born on February 21, 1972, and obtained his federal certificate of competence in precision mechanics/polymechanics in 1991 from the ETA Swatch Group in Fontainemelon (Neuchâtel).
His experience in the industry continued with Alcan in Chippis, until he took over Production Horlogère Sierre.
Production Horlogère Sierre" moves to new premises at Route de la Métralie 26 in Sierre, retaining ownership of all operating equipment and facilities.
This workshop is better adapted to the demand, i.e. larger and more functional.
