Ihr Arbeitgeber Safran Vectronix

Swiss quality, precision and reliability are the guiding principles for our company, based in Heerbrugg. And it is these principles that make us a market leader. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Safran Electronics & Defense, based in Paris, which in turn is part of the Safran Group. The French aerospace group employs a total of around 83,000 people. In Heerbrugg, we develop, produce and sell our products with a workforce of 250 employees.

Safran Vectronix CEO Max Kreis

«At Safran Vectronix, we focus on reliability and credibility in our actions. In short: Walk the Talk.»

Max Kreis, CEO

Max has been the CEO of Safran Vectronix since 2017. He started as a Financial Controller in 2006, and thanks to the Safran Mobility Program, was Chief Financial Officer in the USA.

We accomplish a common mission

We all find ourselves in a contradiction: the world is changing at an incredible speed and at the same time the need for safety is deeply rooted in each of us – regardless of where we live. This also applies to those countries where people cannot rely on stable political conditions and in which peaceful coexistence is often not a matter of course.

It’s good that there are forces that provide more security and stability in a changing world. As Safran Vectronix, we support these forces in their mission and make it our own: To develop and provide the best possible products for safe and successful deployments.

We are sure that with our daily work and our targeted solutions, we can make a contribution to greater safety and to orderly coexistence. Is our mission also yours? Then send us your application so that we can achieve it together.

Safran Vectronix im Gespräch mit Kunden

We work for customers from all over the world

As a globally active company, we have an international focus. At Heerbrugg, this is particularly true for our team, which consists of employees from over 20 nations. But our customers are also widely dispersed in over 90 countries around the world. Our selection process for who we work with is done very carefully: We have established strict internal compliance rules and, in addition, some of our products are subject to Swiss export controls.

With our laser rangefinder and observation systems, we focus primarily on government business – that is, cooperation with procurement authorities. These are defense, police and border forces. For classic B2B business, we supply our ULTISENSE sensor modules to manufacturers of military and civilian goods. In the consumer market, we are present with our TERRAPIN X laser rangefinder.

And why are our solutions so successful? Because we as a company are not only leaders in classic optics and mechanics, but also our software and hardware solutions are among the best. Unique calculation algorithms, software packages for our devices or intuitive HMIs facilitate their use. In addition, in hardware engineering, there is the so-called SWaPC design, which is about the optimization of components: small size (S), low weight (W), high performance (P) and this at optimized costs (C).

«I exchange ideas intensively with customers; I can only learn from them. Customer orientation thrives on close cooperation.»
