PX Group, primarily based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, is a leader in the field of external watch components and is accredited with the “Swiss made” label. Working with precious, fine and non-precious metals, the group also operates in other major industries that include the jewelry, optical, dental, medical, automotive and instrumentation sectors. Since its foundation in 1976 by current chairman Pierre-Olivier Chave, PX Group has made a name for itself by being the first to manufacture semi-finished products that are tailor-made for specific purposes. It now has six separate and complementary manufacturing, marketing and service entities in Switzerland, a subsidiary in Malaysia for the industrial manufacture of semi-finished products, as well as three sales companies in France, Germany and Spain.
To ensure the long-term success of our industrial activities in the region, it is vital we remain at the cutting edge of the technology sector. Microcity is an additional asset that enables us to forge synergies and collaborations in the fields of academic and applied R&D. And this “hotbed of innovation” in regional specialties naturally does wonders for the reputation of our high-tech industrial activities.
