murex - an experienced partner
In winter 2001/2002 several
experienced professionals and managers - a total of 9 shareholders -
decided to found the murex technik ag. The production line for screws
was built up in Frauenfeld - 30 minutes from Zurich.
All required machines were procured during the year 2002: The heart of
our screw production, the Weingärtner "pick-up" milling &
whirling machine was installed in August 2002. Our
VDF Boehringer CNC lathe and the Hettiger Deloro CNC welding machine
arrived in December 2002.
During 2003 the headcount increased to
13 employees. Our brand name started to become
well-known in the market. Murex was finally set up as an accepted
screws and barrels by the first participation at the Fakuma in October
In 2004, the number of employees
increased to 18, and the machinery was extended by a deep-hole
machine, which was placed in Rorbas - about 20 minutes from Frauenfeld
- because of shortage of space in our main production
In autumn 2005, murex bought the
well-known company REY in Bremgarten.This additional manufacturing
plant is specialized on barrels and grooved feed bushes. Together
with the additional company, the head count was already 24 people. The
heart of the
machinery in Bremgarten are two CNC operated grooving machines.
Today we own one of the most modern
and attractive machinery in the
branch. We are proud of being able to execute all worksteps for the
production of screws, barrels and grooved feed bushes on our own.
In 2007, there were already 30
employees working for murex, and there was no more space for further
growth in our plant in Frauenfeld. From August to October 2007 all
machines were transfered from the plants Frauenfeld and Rorbas to the
plant in Wängi.
Our brand new Weingartner Pick-up 700
(milling-/ whirling machine) was taken into operation in October 2008.
We are now able to manufacture the very large screws (diameters
larger than 100 mm) with the maximum of efficiency.
