Swissmem unites the Swiss engineering, electrical and metal industry and associated technology-oriented sectors.

Continuous basic work has made Swissmem into a centre of strategic commercial and employer skills. This allows us to represent the concerns of the sector to politicians, national and international organizations, representatives of employees and the public. 

The commitment of Swissmem has a long tradition and is based on the activities of the ASM and VSM associations. The VSM was renamed as Swissmem and took over all the activities of the ASM, apart from those in connection with the overall employment agreement of the sector, at the start of 2007.
