A Swiss-based manufacturer of custom microswitches and sealed position switches, Microprecision Electronics was founded in 1956 and began as a manufacturer and supplier of precision parts for the Swiss watch industry. These competencies led the company to develop microswitches, and since then Microprecision has focused on the development, manufacturing and distribution of customized switches for OEM transmission and brakes, electrical and machine tool.
