Global harmonization of testing processes

We apply a variety of optical and electrical test methods as well as environmental tests. The high degree of automation and the involvement during development lower costs over the long term. As Head of Test Engineering, Markus Dillinger is a driving force for the global harmonization of testing processes, bolstering the over 20-year partnership with leading test machine maker SPEA, and further developing the competence center in Sri Lanka. In the future, local test engineering resources at all locations globally will use SPEA’s automated systems.

Over 25 Years’ Leadership Experience in the Electronics Industry

“By bringing Markus Dillinger on board, we are gaining more than 25 years’ leadership experience in the electronics industry. He will develop our Engineering and Test Engineering teams further and ensure high-quality, cost-effective, and on-time solutions in conjunction with our interdisciplinary teams and in close cooperation with our customers,” says Stephan Sonderegger, CEO of Variosystems. Dillinger is moving to Variosystems from technology company System Industrie Electronic (S.I.E.), where he was General Manager.

Investment in Sri Lanka Competence Center

Variosystems’ largest production site is located in Badalgama, Sri Lanka. This ultramodern facility was doubled in size to approximately 30,000 square meters in fall 2023. In addition to electronics and wire harness manufacturing, it is also home to a center for test engineering. Its more than 30 test engineers develop tailor-made testing technology for sites globally and offer technical support. We plan to make further investments and double our personnel over the coming months. Markus Dillinger is responsible for strengthening the competence center and developing a global engineering and test engineering network. The aim behind this is to support the customer organizations in Europe, North America, China, and the Asia-Pacific region with a harmonized testing strategy and SPEA technology platform in the future.
