We develop and manufacture
coffee machines under one roof.
Aequator AG has been developing and producing high-quality and reliable coffee and hot beverage machines in Arbon since 1933. Already in its third generation, the company stands for innovation, tradition and Swiss quality. It employs over 80 people at three locations and exports to over 20 countries around the world.
The passionate innovation leader convinces internationally with its passion for coffee, openness to new ideas, customer proximity and service.
The dynamic family business with several subsidiaries promotes its employees and continuously develops itself and its products.
All Aequator coffee and hot drink machines have been developed, designed, first prototypes have been created, tested, produced and delivered at the site in Arbon since 1933. In 2007 another plant was added next door. In 2017 a further building in Arbon was bought, modernised and the premises have renovated to be climate-friendly.
Despite the strong Swiss franc, we are sticking to our manufacturing location. The close proximity of development, testing and assembly makes a decisive contribution to the quality of Aequator products.
In House 1, the necessary parts for series and small production are processed today in our own sheet metal production. Our machinery is continuously adapted to the latest market developments and we are at the cutting edge of technology. In addition, we have our own cable production facility here, which manufactures these for spare parts as well as series production. Some of the hot beverage machines are also manufactured in this building. Our research department uses their premises for creative ideas and various test processes.
In House 2, opened in 2007, all Aequator coffee machines are produced. Our flexibility is important in order to be able to guarantee sufficient production capacities. Proximity to quality control plays a major role in guaranteeing the reliability of the devices. The logistics area with its modern technology and operating data system enables processes to be handled quickly in the background. The office space for purchasing, support and sales can be found here. Sales and technical trainings with our partners are also held here.
The newest building offers a lot of space for the production of the large hot drink machines. Here, too, the logistical aspect is optimally covered. The development area with its various offices is the ideal place for new creations and joint exchange. The after-sales service workshop guarantees a clean process for the provision of smaller orders and rental machines. We continue to enjoy a fine cup of coffee or a delicious lunch in the beautiful cafeteria "Entspannbar".
Aequator coffee machines was founded in 1933 by Alfred Meyer. He concentrated in high pressure brewing and developed the first coffee machines. In the 70s Aequator developed and sold the first fully automatic machines. After Manfred Meyer took over he decided to enter into the export market.
We continue to develop innovative solutions and to extend our product range tightly focussed. In the past years we also produced specific private label machines.
Aequator, the traditional family business, still is property of the founder family and is headed by the third generation. Over 80 years experience, a stable situation of the manufacturer and the country (Switzerland) form the strong basis of trust and confidence to master the challenges of the future.
