Lamineries MATTHEY SA is a family-run, third-generation family-owned company based in La Neuveville, Switzerland, since 1901, and is recognized as the market leader in cold-rolled precision strips and foils that meet very specific and technically demanding requirements. The company owes this excellent position and unique expertise to over a century of experience and continuous collaboration with its diverse customers in developing new applications and improving quality.
After the sale of the operative business, the extensive real estate remains in family ownership. The transaction resulted in the realization of a regional solution, which ensures the long-term successful continuation of the industrial business of Lamineries MATTHEY.
The NOTZgroup, a fourth-generation family-owned company, developed its stainless steel trading and warehousing activities in Biel in 1898. The company moved to Brügg in 1971 to expand its steel service center and consolidate its stainless steel market. As of 2002, the product range was expanded with the acquisitions of the companies Jacques Allemann, Studer (as of 2013 Studer-Biennaform) SA and VOCO Sàrl (FR)
With the acquisition of Lamineries MATTHEY, the NOTZgroup is able to complete the range of its products and further expand the range of highly specialized products.
