Manufacturing power electronics in Switzerland for more than 30 years
From its beginning, Studer has been in the forefront of battery-based systems. Despite the constant evolution of the sector, and the arrival of new competitors, Studer has kept a leading position. All manufacturing is carried out in Switzerland, to the highest quality standards. Serge Remy, Head of Sales, gave PES a look back of over 30 years of history and bringing us right up to the present day.
The pioneer years
Here is the story of a company which started small, in a tiny country called Switzerland.
The man who founded this company in 1987, Roland Studer, had a great idea: to offer high value power electronics to a brand-new market, which then was still in its youth and to offer it beyond the frontier of Switzerland. Of course, it was solar photovoltaic.
