Raiffeisen Corporate Finance advised RBC Bearings Inc. in the acquisition of the Swiss Tools Group

Together with its subsidiaries Bär + Mettler AG and MBM AG, Swiss Tool Systems AG is a leading provider of high-precision modular tool holder systems. The origins of the company’s product programs lie in modular boring systems, and it is there that the company’s values such as absolute precision, high flexibility and the proverbial Swiss reliability also originate. Swiss Tools’ typical end markets include the mechanical engineering, aerospace and energy sectors. The company was founded in Bürglen in Thurgau, Switzerland in 1973 and has an independent sales office in China. Cross Equity had acquired the company in 2016 as part of a succession solution.
Swiss Tools has been acquired via RBC Bearings’ 100% subsidiary Schaublin SA, which is based in Delémont, Switzerland. The acquisition will strengthen the collets business of Schaublin and will bring Swiss Tools additional international sales options via RBC’s global network.
