Since 1959, MULLER Technology has been developing customized and sustainable solutions to meet the challenges of Industry 4.0. With more than 2,000 systems and robots installed worldwide, its expertise is internationally recognized.
MULLER Technology, an industrial SME based in Conthey, is a major player in the field of industrial automation and the manufacture of molds for plastic injection. Founded in 1959, this company has been able to distinguish itself thanks to its constant innovation and its contribution to the digitalization of the industry.
Since the 1990s, the company has been developing automation systems for production lines, having already installed more than 2,000 systems and robots worldwide. The moldmaking division, meanwhile, focuses on sustainable solutions, using recyclable materials and drastically reducing the amount of plastic in packaging.
MULLER's team of experts works closely with customers to better understand their challenges and expectations, developing customized solutions. Their efforts have resulted in the reduction of the amount of plastic used in some cases by up to 70%, thanks to their state-of-the-art technology.
As early as 1993, MULLER Technology started to develop automation systems for the handling of parts coming out of its customers' injection molding machines. Thanks to the integration of ultramodern technologies, the company was able to evolve rapidly towards the mastery of complex handling at sustained rates.
An international development strategy
The acquisition in 2017 of a company in Fort Collins, Colorado (USA), has strengthened its global presence. This company is now an integral part of the group and contributes to the company's growth in various fields, such as Cartesian robots, smart cameras for quality control, six-axis and collaborative robots for the automation of finished product packaging, and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for the logistics management of production halls.
MULLER Technology’s 140 employees, 75 of whom are based in Conthey, have benefited from quality jobs and professional development opportunities within an innovative and growing company. This growth has also had a positive impact on the local economy and reinforced the image of the canton as a center of innovation and technological excellence.
Meeting the challenges of Industry 4.0
MULLER Technology is also committed to training and skills development for its employees and the local workforce. By investing in continuing education and working closely with local academic institutions, the company ensures that it has a skilled and competent workforce to meet the challenges of Industry 4.0. This approach has benefited not only MULLER Technology, but also the entire canton of Valais by preparing workers for the demands of an ever-evolving job market.
