Doctor Blade's for Gravure and Flexographic Printing
Daetwyler SwissTec AG was founded in October of 2007 as a new branch of MDC Max Daetwyler AG. As an innovative and dynamic company Daetwyler SwissTec AG's visions and goals are to further strengthen its role as the market leader by enhancing its portfolio with high-tech Doctor Blade products for Gravure and Flexographic printing processes.
The MDC group employs some 800 staff, half of which are working in its worldwide distribution and service network, which consists of 40 subsidiaries and agencies.
The parent company MDC Max Daetwyler AG was founded in 1943 to focus its business on research, development and refurbishment of copier equipment for the printing industry as well as the manufacture of airplane parts.
Since 1965 MDC has established itself step-by-step and with determination in the industrial graphics industry and since the mid 90-ties has become a market leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of pre-press systems for packaging and illustration rotogravure printing.
In 1973, Daetwyler developed a completely unique MDC Doctor Blade with a consistent blade tip. These revolutionary doctor blades set new worldwide standards in the field of printing technology. Since the MDC Doctor Blade product line has been steadily refined to meet changing customer needs.
Daetwyler SwissTec AG has implemented a quality management system and as of April 2008 achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification, which will help to maintain and even raise the high quality standards of the industry.
The young family-owned company SwissTec AG is located beside the Daetwyler Headquarter in Bleienbach, which is situated in the Swiss central midlands.
