Sathom will now take over manufacture of all the products which have contributed to the worldwide renown of Thommen Instruments, such as altimeters, airspeed indicators, aircraft clocks and chronographs.
All Thommen engineers and technicians involved in this activity have been taken on by Sathom. The activity will be transferred to brand new premises also located in Waldenburg, Switzerland mid-July.
Repair and maintenance of these products will be taken over by Satori. This medium-sized French company with a strong reputation in the MRO field should as a result experience strong growth and create new jobs for technicians in the near future.
