The Variosystems headquarters is located in Steinach, directly at Lake Constance. The village has about 3000 inhabitants and is a popular economic and residential area. Even though the surrounding is quite rural, Steinach is only about ten minutes by car from St. Gallen and one hour from Zurich and its international airport. Another advantage of this place is its location in the tri-border-region of Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Industrial areas that are key for Variosystems, like German-speaking Switzerland, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Bavaria or Vorarlberg, can be perfectly served from here. Moreover, the University of St. Gallen and the NTB Buchs are two important training and innovation centers in closest vicinity. And also important customers as innovation drivers and important technology partners are located here.
Variosystems’ success story began in the Steinach region. The company’s three founders handcrafted the first circuit boards and assemblies on the kitchen table. In 1993, the company moved to a small office and was officially established. Just a few years later, in 1997, Variosystems was relocated to its current site. In the early days, about 30 employees worked in the old building. In 2009, the new building facilitated the production’s expansion. By now, the office and production area spans across 91’500 ft² in order to optimally serve the European market with high quality products. To achieve this goal, 250 employees and about 20 trainees give their best every day. In Steinach, a lot is invested in new technologies and know-how. That is the reason why this site is also an innovation driver for the entire Variosystems Group.
