Colibrys relocates to new premises with $10M investment

February 9, 2012 — Colibrys SA, high-reliability micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) motion sensors manufacturer for precision navigation and seismic monitoring applications, will relocate locally, to the Y-Parc at Yverdon-les-Bains, Canton Vaud, Switzerland. The move will be completed by mid-2013.

Colibrys will use a US$10 million investment for new cleanrooms to manufacture 6" silicon MEMS wafers and perform advanced assembly and test capabilities, as well as areas for design, product engineering, and administration tasks.

The move enables Colibrys to expand into medical and industrial sensor markets, said Sean Neylon, CEO, adding that the company will be able to ramp up new product developments, customer support, and employee benefits in the new location.

Colibrys expects substantial rent reductions from the move, and will occuy modern, eco-friendly premises. The new location, owned by Meigerhorn, is in the Y-Parc technology center for high-tech SME businesses.

COLIBRYS makes standard and semi-custom MEMS-based motion sensors for harsh-environment (Aerospace & Defense and Energy) and safety critical (Industrial and Instrumentation) applications. Additional information is available at
