Company History

Rubis has been making precision tweezers for over 70 years. In the beginning, the tweezers were used exclusively in the Swiss watch industry. Only extremely precise and high-quality tweezers could be used to assemble the sensitive mechanical movements of well-known manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Cartier or Rolex. This gave rise to an independent handicraft tradition at Rubis, which was characterized by a pronounced sense of precision and the beauty of the shape that the Swiss watchmakers have always practiced.

Rubis soon became the market leader. Tweezers were not only made for the watch industry, but also for other demanding applications in electronics and microelectronics, robotics, telecommunications, space travel, research, biogenetics, pharmaceuticals, laboratories, surgery, microscopy, chemistry, medicine, biology and microbiology. Global companies such as Motorola, General Electric, Siemens, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard and renowned research institutions such as the Fraunhofer Institute and the University of Zurich have been working with Rubis tweezers for years.

Experience and the proverbial Swiss precision form the basis for the unique quality of our products. We conduct research and development intensively: new materials, the use of innovative technologies and functional design are in the foreground. We have all the engineering in-house to be able to manufacture in close contact with our customers. Our own mould-making department enables us to implement requests for special designs quickly and reliably.

Personal contact with our customers and suppliers is therefore of crucial importance to us. Teamwork is and remains an important pillar of our corporate philosophy.

Corporate identity is defined across all areas. It encompasses the products and the corporate culture and extends to the everyday environment, the workplace. The expanded office space is characterized by a clear line and contemporary materials. There is a strong parallel between the Rubis products and this architecture. A parallel of what is feasible with a minimum of shapes and materials, which with tireless thought processes find their way to fascinating simplicity.
