About Collamat


Home market

Collamat intends to be the preferred manufacturer of standardized and customized labelling solutions for customers in the pharmaceutical, food and OEM markets. Collamat also offers a full range of labelling consumables for the following product groups: printers, ribbons and service. Its home market includes the Swiss market as well as exports to regions close to the border.


Collamat wants to be the preferred manufacturer of labelling heads and standardized labelling solutions for dealers throughout the world. Regional distribution partners should be able to best meet the needs and desires of end users and their expectations of quality and service through their operational structure. Our focus is on the customer and our main objective is to provide a straightforward, cost-efficient and service-oriented business.


Our experience with the production of labelling machines goes back a long way. The first machines were launched in 1959. At that time the focus was on the Swiss market and the strategy was called “Swiss quality for the Swiss market”. The market developed quickly. The spread of product labelling and the later introduction of barcodes increased the need for labelling solutions. Demand developed in all industries, but demanded different solutions. Collamat has been able to develop such solutions, and even today, many industries are still buying their labelling solutions from us.
