About us


ART Welding was founded in 2019 with the scope of becoming the competent contact for industrial customers in Switzerland, Italy and Hungary when it comes to digitization in the areas of training and further education, quality assurance of welds and increase of productivity. Thanks to a small, technically well-trained team, we understand the needs of our customers and can support the step into Industry 4.0 with state-of-the-art solutions.

In 2010, after working in the Finance and IT Industry I was offered a position in the welding Industry. My father, a welding engineer, was looking for support, as he was supposed to retire. At that point my mother asked me: ”What do you want to do in Winterthur`s Industry area, when you`ve been working at the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich (a very chic place in Zürich`s centre)?” I couldn`t answer that question, but from today`s view, it may have been my best decision ever…

I started then as an Assistant in a job shop welding with electron beam. Soon I realised, that I really liked this kind of work, as every day we worked on real parts (not factionary financial or IT products…). I was very often in the lab, learning on the job. My great colleagues were patient teachers and so I learned a lot. Two years later I was given the general manager role.

In 2013 I moved on to a company doing electron beam welding, brazing, thermal spraying, and heat treatments. I was responsible for sales. 2014 I had the chance to work still in Sales for a company that was developing and producing nickel and cobalt-based superalloys. In 2017 I moved on to a company, a leader in the production of welding consumables and equipment for welding and cutting processes.

Since 2020 I`m running Artwelding full-time. The welding industry is my passion and I feel the need for digitalisation of the industry to keep work in Europe and to ensure future welding workforce for European countries.
