Almatech was founded in 2009 on the EPFL Innovation Park where innovation and entrepreneurship meet by Dr Luc Blecha and Hervé Cottard, 2 experienced engineers and managers.
Back then, the company started working on the Hydroptere, the fastest sailing boat on the planet with a record of 103km/h!
Almatech quickly picked up momentum on the space market by contributing to multiple ESA Science missions through the Prodex programme of Switzerland.
With a space heritage on 10+ ESA/CNES missions, Almatech is now working directly for all main European industrial leaders.
Thanks to its competences in engineering, the company is also active on several “non-space” markets where it provides accessible engineering services.
Lastly, Almatech has several patent-pending innovations under development with the ultimate goal to commercialize recurring products.
