REMA TIP TOP has acquired Polytechna AG, a Swiss supplier of conveyor technology for several industries, and will become a 100 percent owned subsidiary.
Polytechna AG, based in Wetzikon, Switzerland, represents manufacturers of conveyor belts, drum motors and drive rollers, checkweighers, metal detectors, track & trace systems, bagging and bag emptying machines, along with components for conveyor systems.
The company offers a broad product portfolio for the food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, logistics, printing, paper, agriculture, wood, and textile industries.
REMA-TIP TOP Vulc-Material AG Managing Director Petra Vontz said customer requirements have become more complex.
“For years, REMA-TIP TOP Vulc-Material AG and Polytechna AG have shared the commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations with a broad product range, technical know-how and customer service at the highest level,” Vontz said.

Polytechna AG’s experience and services will be bundled to strengthen and expand the position of both companies in the Swiss market.
The REMA TIP TOP Group already operates four sites in Switzerland. With the acquisition of Polytechna AG, another location is added, which further densifies the service network in Switzerland.
“As of now, 24 service technicians and a nationwide network of technical consultants at 5 locations are on duty around the clock for our customers,” Polytechna Head of Service and Sales, Urs Berchtold said.
In addition to expanding and extending the service network, there are plans to further promote the digitalisation of maintenance using the company’s field management system and procurement via the REMA TIP TOP online store.
