Merger of Axians Broger Ltd. and Axians Micatel Ltd. into Axians Switzerland Ltd.

Press Release

A Switzerland-wide market-leading provider for the planning, design, construction and operation of turnkey fixed-network and mobile communication infrastructures is being created with the formation of Axians Switzerland Ltd. With 11 locations throughout the country, over 400 employees and trusted local partners, Axians Switzerland is superbly positioned to expertly plan the necessary future expansions of the increasingly interconnected telecom infrastructure and to efficiently implement this from a single source.

The two companies Axians Broger and Axians Micatel, which specialise in fixed-network and mobile communications infrastructures, join forces on 1 January 2019 and will then appear on the market as Axians Switzerland Ltd. “The network infrastructures in the field of telecommunications and information technology are converging ever more strongly. We want to offer a high-performance and expert service as a general contractor for network infrastructures to our customers throughout Switzerland. As specialists, we cover planning, engineering, product and non-proprietary commissioning, installation and integration of complex systems right through to the turnkey handover as well as operation from a single source,” explains Peter Alder, Managing Director of the Division Axians at VINCI Energies Switzerland.

Newer market trends like applications in the Internet-of-Things IoT, Smart City or the forthcoming expansions for the implementation of the 5G standard in mobile communications are placing ever higher demands on the telecommunications and broadband infrastructures. In addition, they are accelerating the merger of the Axians Broger and Axians Micatel teams – which traditionally specialise in mobile communications and fixed network technology.  “Our teams already work together on large orders at the present time – often from jointly operated locations,” continues to explain Peter Alder. As of 1 January 2019, the over-400 strong Axians network specialists will appear at all the 11 locations and become known as Axians Switzerland.

“By pooling together the competences in Axians Switzerland, we can respond even more directly to the current and future needs of our customers. We are also very attractive as an employer, with a forward-looking and broadened task portfolio,” notes Peter Alder happily.

Axians Switzerland emphasises its positioning as a responsible employer with its admittance as a contracting partner to the collective employment agreement of the Swiss Network Infrastructure Association (Schweizer Netzinfrastrukturverbandes, SNiv) on 1 January 2019.

The Axians brand also includes the companies Axians GNS, Axians COM and Axians redtoo (with representatives in the Czech Republic and the USA). These companies continue to provide a full service portfolio within the field of IT in Switzerland: from consulting, planning, integration and support of IT solutions, to the provision of IT specialists, through to the complete outsourcing of IT organisations and tailor-made IT applications from their own cloud.
