Macrocast, a company of the binder Group, is one of the market leaders in the small parts segment and is known internally and externally for quality and performance. 25 years have passed since the foundation and this little journey through time shows the development of this success story.

1995: Macrocast was founded as a traditional die-casting foundry in Adliswil/Zurich, Switzerland. The company’s core competence at the time was in complex, geometrically sophisticated small parts.
At the same time, the company also supplied the automotive industry until 1999.
2005: Series 713 threading rings were manufactured for binder for the first time – heralding the start of a new era.
From 2 to 22
The company employed two members of staff back when it was first founded – today, that number is 22. The machine parks in production and finishing were constantly expanded and adapted to customers’ requirements. These expansions also meant more and more staff had to be brought on board. The premises in Adliswil were no longer. The new and modern buildings in Samstagern were acquired in October 2000 and they still serve as the company’s head office today.
“这似乎很奇怪，但是对于测试该产品的功能非常有效。”Macrocast技术经理Jens Paul解释说， “随后组件在压铸过程中进行优化。这样的好处在于既联合了专家的协同作用，又将成本控制在集团内部。这使我们既可以加强项目业务，又可以使宾德集团有效地参与进来。”
