The history of Reed

The history of a successful Swiss company

From a two-man business to a successful company.

  • 1986

    Founded by two young enthusiasts, the success story of Reed Electronics AG started in 1986. Much like many other companies, production initially took place in a rented garage. At this time, the focus was solely placed on sensors for monitoring fluids. The two founders soon enjoyed their first taste of success. From these early days, a number of partnerships have developed that remain in place to this very day.

  • 1993

    Due to a lack of space, operations were moved to rented premises in an industrial building in Schachen (canton of Lucerne).

  • 1996

    Purchase of the first company building. Up to this point, the company still only produced and sold level sensors. In the same year, a neighbouring company enquired about the development of a machine that could automatically connect thermoplastic hoses. The company seized this opportunity and the Development department was established in 1997.

  • 1999

    Three years after the enquiry, the ReeWelder – the first generation of the modern-day Biowelder® TC – was launched on the market. The current version of this product is now in its fourth generation.

  • 2005

    The first version of a machine that safely separates thermoplastic hoses is launched on the market. The ReeSealer is the predecessor of the current Biosealer® TC series, which is now available on the market in its second generation.

  • 2007

    Exactly ten years after the market launch of the Reewelder, Reed enters into a strategic and successful partnership with the renowned German Sartorius Group.

  • 2013

    Both the sensor system and biotech sectors and the Development department are continuously expanded. The number of employees is constantly increasing and space is at a premium in the company's premises. To meet the increasing demands from all sides, a decision is made in 2013 for a new building to be constructed. Planning for this project commences.

  • 2015

    Acquisition of the new building. The large amount of space available promotes the further development of the company.

  • 2016

    Suction lances with integrated fluid monitoring have been produced for numerous customers for a number of years. In 2015, a decision was made to develop the standard suction lance in three different lengths. These are successfully launched in 2016.

  • 2022

    Launch of the first medical product Maconnect. The first multiple sterile welding device for the connection of up to 6 tube connections. Automation is coming, based on the old know-how of the Reed company.

  • Today

    From it's beginnings as a two-person company, it has grown into a successful enterprise with 50+ employees. One of the founders, Thomi Christen, still serves as the CEO and, along with his family, is the owner of this thriving Central Swiss company... to be continued
