Greeting address of the Swiss Ambassador


Dear Swiss Pavilion visitors,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to this year’s Swiss Pavilion at the Metalloobrabotka, the most important Russian show for the machine tool and metalworking industries. Since many years, it attracts visitors from all over the world and figures as one of the most important industrial platforms in Russia. After the event could not take place last year, we are all the more happy to meet in person this year – albeit respecting the common protection and hygiene measures. The relaunch of industry growth after the pandemic crisis is an important goal that we can tackle only together. It is crucial to count on the right partner in order to overcome the challenges. Switzerland and Russia have been demonstrating for many years that they can cooperate very successfully. 

In Switzerland, the machine tool industry has a long tradition and constant INNOVATION has been the key to succeed in a competitive international environment. The Swiss machine tool manufacturers, builders of measuring equipment and producers of precision tools are prime partners for know-how transfer and reliable enablers of the modernisation process of the Russian industry.

Another distinguishing feature of the Swiss machine tool and metalworking sector is the constant push for SUSTAINABLE production. Making manufacturing processes more energy efficient and reducing waste in raw materials is an investment that pays off in the long run not only in environmental but also in business terms. 

This year the show features a comprehensive display of machine tools and manufacturing solutions catering to the needs of the Russian manufacturing industry. I am pleased to invite you to take a closer look at what the Swiss industry has to offer. It is an excellent opportunity for a direct exchange with representatives both of the Swiss and Russian industry sector, which is valuable for professionals as well as for a generally interested audience.

To facilitate the cooperation between companies from both our countries is one of my goals. Together with my team, we are here to support you. Please feel free to contact our Swiss Business Hub in Moscow or the association Swissmem in case you need any assistance in this respect. I invite you to call at the Swissmem booth for contact information and the organisation of meetings.

I wish you a very successful visit of the Swiss Pavilion at Metalloobrabotka 2021. May you find the perfect match, a partner, which helps you to develop your business and be successful!

The 20st Swiss Pavilion at Metalloobrabotka


We would have wished to celebrate the jubilee with you under different circumstances. However, we feel so privileged to be with you also this time with a Swiss Pavilion at Metalloobrabotka in Moscow. This is not only documenting the importance of this exhibition but also the long term commitment of the Swiss producers of machine tools and Swiss providers of manufacturing technologies to their Russian partners. Every time Metalloobrabotka A takes place the Swiss Pavilion is an excellent show case for up-to-date manufacturing solutions required to keep abreast with the latest production needs. Its appearance and contents come in a professional, well organised, tidy but also relaxed and beautiful manner. It is a must for any professional visitor of Metallo 2021. In any case, pavilion 8, hall 8.1 is most probably the actual centre of the show and fair ground.

Swissmem, is the largest industrial association of Switzerland and proud to assist the Swiss companies for their presence in Expocentre in Moscow also in pandemic tested year. The Swissmem Machine Tool Manufacturers undertake the task to bring the Swiss Machine Tool Cluster to the show. Besides the actual Machine Tools this includes also the Swiss Manufacturers of Precision Tools, Dimensional Measuring Instruments, coating equipment, machine tool accessories as well as software and service providers related to this cluster.

Metalloobrabotka at Expocentre in Moscow is no doubt the most relevant display of manufacturing technology in the metal working sector in the Russian Federation. It fills me with pride that the Swiss Machine Tool Industry maintains its position – also in difficult times – in this important market window. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the Swiss Pavilion in pavilion 8, hall 8.1 of Expocentre Krasnaja Presnja from May 24 – 28, 2021, during the 21th Metalloobrabotka. It will be a pleasure for us to be your host. Also, do not miss this opportunity to find the better, the innovative, the Swiss solution for your production and modernisation needs.
