INTELLIGENCE SERVICE OF THE SWISS INDUSTRY

Post by koimaster » October 11th 2020, 9:15pm

Centredoc is a unique cooperative in the contemporary watchmaking landscape. Founded in 1964 as a “technical information centre for the watch industry”, the structure still counts among its members the largest watchmaking groups and brands, including the Swatch Group, Richemont, Rolex and Patek Philippe. Its members also include a major non-watchmaker: Nestlé.

Over the course of its almost sixty years of existence, the cooperative, acting as a sort of “watch watcher”, has opened up to other industries, which now account for half of its turnover. But watchmaking remains the core activity of Centredoc, which has 18 employees and is housed at the Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) in Neuchâtel.

A dynamic source of data for a Swiss industry that must constantly innovate, while trying to preserve its global pre-eminence.
Initially specialising in monitoring patent publications linked to the watch industry, the cooperative has expanded its activities over the decades to cover other fields, from market information to 3D printing, and today’s connected watches. It is a dynamic source of data for a Swiss industry that must constantly innovate, while trying to preserve its global pre-eminence.

Harald Jenny has been at the head of Centredoc for just over five years. One of the main activities undertaken under his leadership has been to digitise the services offered by Centredoc.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
