Our headquarters

Our headquarters in Landquart

Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Swiss Alps, CEDES’ state-of-the-art Science Park headquarters in Landquart develops and produces millions of individual sensors every year. From the first design steps within the various R&D departments through to the final product coming off the production line, it all happens within the walls of the five-block facility. This ensures our hallmark Swiss quality and provides the hands-on flexibility to deal with customer-specific requirements.

“I am very proud to welcome you to our brand new website. With its clean design, new and varied content and ease-of-use, the website’s launch marks a new chapter in CEDES’ role as ‘The Sensor Pioneers.’ I believe it makes a clear statement about who we are, what we do and what we stand for.”

Christian-Erik Thöny, CEO CEDES Group

“The Sales Support team has the most daily contact with CEDES’ customers. Emails, phone calls and still plenty of faxes. As First Level Support, the way my team handles the request or query is a real measure of customer care. They need our support. We strive to show that they can depend on it.”

Maria Jebbar, Head of Sales Support

You cannot overstate China’s importance as a market for sensor solutions. Over ten years the demand for our high quality Swiss sensor solutions has increased dramatically. The Chinese market is still price-sensitive. But in contrast to most companies, CEDES China has created and increased demand in China itself for innovative and reliable sensors developed and produced in Switzerland. That’s innovative!

Jason Zheng, Managing Director CEDES China

“CEDES doesn’t sell sensors - we provide solutions. That means having an in-depth knowledge of a specific application to ensure that a product’s theoretical capability is translated into real-word performance. Almost every application throws up its own challenges. My job is to meet them.“

Peter Grüninger, Head of Application Engineering & Development
