Successful apprenticeships


We are proud of the successful apprenticeships completed by Ismael Gabr, Marius Barber, and Dominic Jungo as Polymechaniker EFZ.
We are delighted to have you continue as part of the EXTRAMET team.

Beautify your surroundings

«Beautify your surroundings yourself!» – This was the invitation to the EXTRAMET team on the Easter card, accompanied by a wildflower seed bomb.

The occasion is Sustainability Day 2023. On 4 April, our apprentices and trainees realised an ambitious construction project. The result was a wonderful and unique 4-⭐⭐⭐⭐ insect hotel. The day started with an informative lecture by a biologist who imparted interesting facts about insect diversity and the connections around biodiversity. Afterwards, the master builders got to work.

In the next few days, the bijou will be placed in an optimal location in our neighbourhood. We are counting on as many green thumbs as possible so that the insects not only feel comfortable in the hotel, but also all around.

Doing good together

As a responsible company, we are aware of our social responsibility and want to contribute to the betterment of our society. As we use cobalt in our products and are aware of the challenges associated with the mining of raw materials in Congo, we have decided to donate part of our revenue to a good cause.

The donation to SOS Children’s Villages will help young people and children in the region gain access to vocational training and schooling. We donate 10 centimes for every kilo of cobalt we used in 2022. Many thanks for the support of our customers who supported our “Donate instead of Give” campaign in December. We are proud to make our contribution to improving the lives of children and young people in Congo and are pleased to be able to express this through this donation.

You are invited to join us and contribute to a better future. You can find out more about their work and how you can support them on the SOS Children’s Villages website. We hope that this action will help raise awareness of the challenges associated with resource extraction and improve the lives of children and young people in the region.

The fascination of aircraft construction

The carbide blanks from EXTRAMET AG are used for difficult-to-machine composite materials in the aviation industry.

The fascination for aircraft construction also inspires EXTRAMET Sales and Marketing Manager Peter Blaser. Now he has a new project, the Venom J-1544 is to be restored.

Customised stamping and forming tools

The precision trio MPK Special Tools, ZECHA and EXTRAMET together inspire innovation through successful partnership.
The close partnership makes it possible to implement individual customer requirements quickly and flexibly, because the smooth interaction of the individual components is decisive for success. The individual areas from prototype to series production are optimally coordinated through direct communication between the specialists at EXTRAMET, MPK Special Tools and ZECHA.
Tools and ZECHA are optimally coordinated. The three companies continue to pool their expertise in order to develop reliable solutions for their customers with the help of internal investments and expansions. Matching carbide grades and geometries to a wide range of applications, new manufacturing processes and materials to be machined will continue to be a top priority.
