Ibadan, 21 March 2024. – SWISSto12, a satellite and Radio Frequency product manufacturer has announced its continued global expansion, securing additional production space at its headquarters in Switzerland, almost doubling the size of its existing site to 5,700m2. In addition, the Company has welcomed several new Satcom engineering experts to its growing team, which has increased by 25% since the start of 2024 to over 125 employees working across its facilities in Switzerland, Europe and the USA.

The company also announced that it secured over €200 million in Q4 2023 in customer orders for Radio Frequency subsystems and HummingSat satellites, including from satellite operators Inmarsat (Viasat) and Intelsat. Peter Bach Andersen started working with the SWISSto12 team in November 2023, along with colleagues based out of Denmark. Anderson previously spent eleven years at Cobham Satcom in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark, where he led the development of new RF, Microwave and Antenna technologies.

Peter Bach Andersen, Principal SatCom Systems Engineer, said, “Denmark is a world-renowned hub for aerospace and SatCom engineering. SWISSto12 has started to partner with a number of significant experts in the local area across Radio Frequency engineering and development roles, and I look forward to collaborating with Swissto12 on their exciting Satcom projects.”

Likewise, Emile de Rijk, CEO of SWISSto12, said,” SWISSto12 is continuing to scale in order to meet exceptional customer demand for our Radio Frequency subsystems and HummingSat – and the first commercial GEO SmallSat. Our work with the Danish experts now provides SWISSto12 with access to one of Europe’s leading aerospace and SatCom engineering talent pools.” The CEO also added, “The addition of new production space and a new additional cleanroom to our Renens headquarters is further accelerating our mission to industrialise and scale our product lines and production capabilities.”
