Kellerhals Carrard advises CAPSA on its sale to Acrotec

Kellerhals Carrard advised the shareholders of CAPSA Camille Piquerez, a Swiss watch component manufacturer in a sale transaction to the Acrotec Group. The company has joined the Acrotec Group with the aim of strengthening its watch division.

Founded in 1951 in La Neuveville in the Bern district, CAPSA has been recognised for its expertise in Haute Horlogerie for a long time. Well-known watch brands trust the company’s mastery of high-precision technologies used to make watch cases and movements. The company is mainly active in metal component development, machining, assembly and finishing, primarily for the Swiss watch market.

From the other side, Acrotec is an independent group created by micromechanics professionals. Its main objective is to be a reference subcontractor, offering a wide range of manufacturing processes for precision components.
