A HISTORY OF INNOVATION
In 1959, David Mosimann, an inventive precision mechanic with a very entrepreneurial mindset, decided to set up his own business by founding Bien-Air. The company expanded continually, and in 2001 it created two spin-off companies, Bien-Air Dental and Bien-Air Surgery, with a view to providing perfectly adapted specialist services.The company, located in Switzerland, has its head office in Bienne, while its other two production and assembly plants are in the Jura region. Well established in « Watch Valley », with its cultural heritage of research, high precision and practical ingenuity, the company creates and manufactures all its products locally, from A to Z!
Bien-Air today has more than 350 employees in Switzerland and worldwide. Its products are distributed through its subsidiaries and competent retailers. At the same time, more than 120 technicians provide fast, efficient after sales service. The companies of Bien-Air Holding remain under the control of the Mosimann family, ensuring the group’s independence, stability and continuity.
Over the years, Bien-Air has evolved from being a manufacturer of Swiss Made instruments to a customized line designer. The key idea is to reduce the number of instruments and devices to a minimum for performing a maximum of operations!
This strategy has enabled Bien-Air continually to improve the efficiency of its instruments, increase the capacity of its electronic controls and develop new systems.
Through close cooperation between a dental prosthesis clinic and Bien-Air (Germany / Switzerland), innovative ideas have already materialised as carefully thought out concepts. The requirements based on everyday practice served as a reference for the development of various products in the sectors of micromotors (MX family) and precision instruments, with a view to establishing more reliable and simpler clinical treatment and laboratory procedures.
Bien-Air’s new innovative developments have proved themselves each day in the clinic, thanks to their reliability and their professional service.
