PRODUCTION AND CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE
Candino belongs to one of the few watchmaking Groups in the world capable of covering each and every stage of a watch’s manufacture. This enables a level of process control and quality standards unique in the field, placing the firm in an ideal position to compete at the highest levels.
Candino has the capability and technology to design and manufacture a complete watch, including all its mechanical components.
This translates into a unique competitive advantage in the market. The Herbetswil plant (Switzerland) assembles Swiss Made watches. It has a top-quality factory with the latest production technologies and builds both mechanical and quartz watches. It employs 64 qualified employees who use the most advanced technologies to assemble watches and who meticulously apply the quality controls that each and every one of the pieces that go into a Candino watch are subjected to. This is an essential step to certifying the product before it reaches the market.
As a result of continuous expansion, the group has acquired six highly specialized production centres. One of them is the Swiss manufacturer Soprod which has three key production plants: one in the city of Sion, which makes quartz movements; the second in Les Reussilles, which focuses on the production of automatic mechanisms and integration of complex modules; a third, in Saignelégier, which manufactures components. Each step forward that Candino has taken along its path contributes to an excellent production system whose only comparable expression is among the very best of Swiss watchmakers.
