Edging out 100 other contestants, DECTRIS has tonight won the Prix SVC Northern Switzerland. With the biennial award, the Swiss Venture Club honors companies that turn innovation and entrepreneurship into lasting success. It is considered the most prestigious award for small and medium-sized enterprises in Switzerland.


Among six finalists at a ceremony in Basel, DECTRIS impressed the jury with its journey from hopeful startup to market-leading manufacturer of X-ray detectors. Despite an export share of 99%, all development and production take place in Switzerland, demonstrating how innovation and an enthusiasm for quality can lead to global success.


"The Prix SVC 2017 is a reward for the efforts of the whole company," says Christian Brönnimann, CEO of DECTRIS. "The prize encourages us to continue our way into new businesses and markets."

   "We are extremely proud to win this prize ahead of prominent and successful enterprises," Brönnimann continues, "and thank all our customers and partners who have been on this exciting journey with us and who have made this triumph possible."
