SCS Welcomes Switzerland-based Comelec SA

May 2, 2022

Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) recently announced the acquisition of Comelec SA., a strong and established provider of Parylene, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and multilayer coating services, equipment and raw materials.  Located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Comelec was established by the Zutter family in 1979 and, like SCS, received one of the first Parylene technology licenses from Union Carbide.

The addition of Comelec to the SCS family provides exciting opportunities for current and future customers. Building upon the companies’ existing strong customer relationships in the region and throughout Europe, the combined product portfolio now includes additional Parylene variants, ALD technology and multilayer coatings. The Switzerland-based coating operation is SCS’ fifth coating location in Europe and the twenty-first worldwide.

When asked about the recent acquisition, Tim Bender, SCS President & CEO, stated, “Comelec has a rich history in the European market and prides itself on providing high quality products and services to their customers. We are pleased to have added Comelec’s operation to the SCS family; the longevity and experience of their employees and the company’s focus on new innovative coating technologies, including ALD and multilayer coatings, is an exceptional fit within SCS’ business.”
