Integration of Qualimatest and SAPHIR to create qmt


Qualimatest & SAPHIR amalgamate their Organizations
Creation of qmt
A new name and a new identity

SAPHIR & Qualimatest have a history of 30 years during which they invented, one in Switzerland, the other in France, a large number of solutions and products used in industry for testing and quality control. The two companies joined forces in 2015 when Qualimatest acquired SAPHIR.

In order to accelerate business development and offer wider know-how to all these customers, the two structures of Qualimatest and SAPHIR will be united in a single organization under a single management. A new name, qmt , and a new graphic identity materialize a new player with two geographic locations, 46 employees and € 9 million in turnover.

qmt can see the future big. Through vision, through acoustic measurement, through innovative solutions integrating artificial intelligence, qmt limits the number of imperfections in manufactured products.


More means to develop our products
A technical team of 29 employees
Acceleration of developments in Artificial Intelligence

At the heart of qmt , a dynamic and multidisciplinary team, driven by creativity and a passion for technology, it is united around strong corporate values. Testing and quality control are qmt's trades, industry is the passion of its employees, precision is its distinction.

The new 29-person research & development team has a wide range of expertise ranging from mechanics to software development with specific skills in optics and acoustics. The new means available will allow the significant investments necessary to integrate the latest innovations in terms of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data. This team will be located in France (Isère) and Switzerland (Geneva) with the objective of recruiting talent on the two sites.

Development of the product range

The development of the product range, unified 12 months ago, will be intensified to cover the entire life cycle of our customers' products, from R&D to production through qualification. Significant efforts will be made in the range of test benches to create a standard base.

The products will be adapted to meet the needs of our strategic markets, which are watchmaking, aeronautics & defense, rail, automotive, medical, electrical engineering and energy.

A new step

Qualimatest and SAPHIR have just celebrated their 30th anniversary. It was a good time to start a new phase of development with the complete integration of the two organizations under a single management.

This project excites me because we will improve our portfolio of products and services to better serve our customers. Our dual geographic location guarantees proximity to our customers and enhancement of the respective strengths "Swiss Made, French Touch".

These changes are an opportunity for all of our employees, who will be able to develop their careers in an international environment with world-renowned clients in promising fields.

The entire management of qmt and myself are available to present our new organization to you.

Business teams

The business teams will be defined in order to guarantee the level of skills necessary for the success of the business while taking into account the history with the customers.
