We take pride in being a part of this worldwide network and supporting our customers in achieving their goals.
The sole proprietorship R. Wildberger was founded in 1980 and was converted into Qualitech AG 9 years later. The headquarters was gradually expanded to include the Altenrhein and Düdingen branches (now in Brügg). With growing experience, we created a know-how that made the company one of the leading companies in the industry. In 2002 Qualitech took over a competitor, RTD Switzerland with 7 employees. As a result, the company continued to grow and moved to its new headquarters in Mägenwil in 2006. On October 1, 2013, several Sulzer Innotec departments were taken over, which, with around 60 employees in Winterthur, complements and expands the wide range of Qualitech services. With over 100 employees, Qualitech is the largest independent company of its kind in Switzerland. A further milestone was the introduction of industrial computed tomography with a specially constructed building extension and two additional X-ray bunkers.

The product

The company founder Rolf Wildberger, at that time working as a welding engineer for various Swiss companies, saw material testing and consulting as an opportunity to found his own company. Over the years, the range has been steadily expanded. Our services include non-destructive and destructive testing, inspections and acceptance tests of industrial plants and components at home and abroad, technical consulting, damage and material analysis, computer tomography, structural mechanics, measurement and calibration, training courses (NDT, damage analysis, corrosion and isometry), welder tests and certifications as well as welding engineering.

The market

The construction of our own X-ray bunkers was a major innovative step. This makes it possible to process customer orders on our own premises and thus be independent of test locations, test conditions and radiation protection requirements. The possession of several cobalt sources, whose high energy allows the radiation of even thick-walled test pieces, creates many possibilities for us.

Not only good ideas and investments, but also central locations are important for the success of our company. Mägenwil, our headquarters are located near the production facilities of various large and medium-sized companies in the industrially strong Swiss Mittelland. In recent years, the Altenrhein, Brügg and new Winterthur and Birr branches have also been added. A market advantage is the competent, flexible and fast completion of orders in our own premises (test centre with bunker facilities) or on site at the customer’s premises with laboratory vehicles.

The employees

Our great potential lies with our employees. Since the company was founded, great importance has been attached to internal and external further training, thus continuously increasing the competence of our customers. Modern employment conditions and the promotion of good cooperation enable each individual to identify with his or her workplace. In the past few years, we have created framework conditions that allow us to continue to play a leading role in “our market niche” in the future and to guarantee economic success.
