The Research and Development Center, which became S.C. Plasmaterm S.A., was founded in 1965. It established an international reputation in the field of material science and surface engineering. Plasmaterm inherited a unique expertise, not only in surface engineering, but also in investment casting with lost-wax patterns. These were the assets to build up a business in investment casting, material testing and analysis, surface engineering – aiming especially plasma nitriding on both, research and production scale.
Transforming the former research institute with its manufacturing facilities included, Plasmaterm SA was established in 1993 as a private company, with management and employees as shareholders. Originally, only the laboratories were taken over. Later, in 1998, the investment casting foundry was also acquired and in 2005 a new investment extended the activities to the field of machining and assembling high-tech security locks.
