As of 1st January 2017, SCHURTER Holding AG acquires the Czech aki electronic, a manufacturer of keyboards, touch panels and HMI systems. The acquisition of aki offers an increase in production capacity, an increase in know-how and a geographical expansion of the activities in Eastern Europe.

The purchase and integration of aki into the division Input Systems offers several advantages for the SCHURTER Group: the geographic expansion to Eastern Europe as well as a further strengthening of the already processed DACH market for input systems. Added to this is the advantage of the production site of the Czech Republic with high quality awareness (Medical Standard ISO 13485) at attractive production costs.
