Ideal-tek is a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision hand tools and instruments to a global customer base in many industries. Our reputation for delivering outstanding products, customer service, technical support and conducting business to the highest possible ethical and quality standards is the cornerstone of our philosophy.
Since being established in Switzerland in 1964, Ideal-tek has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of precision hand tools and instruments.
From our facility in the southern Switzerland region of Tessin, we design and manufacture high quality specialist tweezers, cutters, pliers and custom designed tools.
We also provide customers with additional complementary products, sourced from highly respected third parties. These products include microscopes; scalpels and blades; printed circuit board holders; and soldering / desoldering tools.
Ideal-tek products are used every day by thousands of customers in the medical device; surgical instruments; microscopy and laboratory; electronics and semiconductor; and watchmaking and jewellery industries.
Our products are sold in 45 countries by a network of some 150 distributor partners. Currently, 35% of our sales come from the USA, 40% from Europe and 25% from Asia.
Every product line we introduce is the result of exhaustive research, development and collaboration with our customers to ensure they exactly match the requirements of the application.
Ideal-tek focuses on the perfect balance between craftsmanship and industrialisation. As we manufacture hand tools and every person’s hands are slightly different from one another’s, we always strive to achieve the perfect synergy between form, fit and function, so that our customers enjoy using our products and they help deliver maximum productivity. Every single Ideal-tek instrument must pass a final test before a customer handles it.
With over 50 years’ experience in supplying superior quality tools, Ideal-tek has earned a worldwide reputation for outstanding products, customer service and technical support.
A total commitment to quality, the pursuit of perfection, and conducting business to the highest possible ethical standard pervade every department of the company, which today employees some 60 staff.
