Colibrys officially in production at Yverdon-les-Bains

10 September 2014
Colibrys announces the official release of its production activities at its new manufacturing site Av. des Sciences 13, 1400 Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland.

After a successful move from Neuchâtel, Colibrys has now restarted the manufacturing of its products at Yverdon-les-Bains in the technoparc Y-parc. The company inaugurated its new building last January in the presence of local officials. The production line equipment, the processes and the final products successfully passed a thorough in-house qualification procedure. As of today, the Swiss company proudly announces their production facility is fully operational, achieved on time and respecting the project’s initial schedule.

Colibrys is a world leading manufacturer of high performance micro-motion sensors based on MEMS technology. Thanks to advanced methods of fabrication, assembly and packaging techniques, Colibrys is able to supply reliable sensors resisting the harshest environments. These products are mainly used in aerospace, energy and defence.

This new relocation will reinforce the company as a World-Class leader. Patrick Gougeon, CEO of Colibrys quotes “This new facility will allow Colibrys to support its activities in the coming years. This new production facility is an opportunity to scale the production while continuing to innovate in our field.”

With the aim to guarantee a smooth transition from Neuchâtel, the company established a product stock large enough to avoid any delay in deliveries. Colibrys was able to reach its zero impact objectives to the satisfaction of their customers, distributors and partners. Even a dedicated website has been created, ensuring a lean communication between all the stakeholders. All the products are now developed in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland.

About Colibrys
New company of the group Sagem (Safran) since 1st January 2013, Colibrys is a world-leading supplier of standard and semi-custom MEMS based motion sensors to the harsh-environments (Military, Aerospace and Energy) and safety critical (Industrial and Instrumentation) applications. COLIBRYS family of motion sensors include extremely low noise, shock resistant seismic sensors, high stability shock tolerant inertial and shock accelerometers tilt sensors as well as DC coupled capacitive vibration sensors.

About Micro Electro Mechanical Systems, MEMS
MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) are micro electro-mechanical structures defined principally in silicon, glass or polymeric materials using techniques similar to traditional integrated circuit process technology. These devices can combine mechanical and/or optical and/or fluidic and electrical elements to provide basic sensing or actuating functions. These sensing or actuating elements can be combined with discrete or monolithic microelectronic integrated circuits to create miniature microsystems capable of providing exceptionally small, ruggedized, low cost functionality historically not imaginable with traditional macro mechanical technology.
