Multi-Contact was created by the pioneering spirit and initiative of company founder Rudolf Neidecker in Allschwil near Basel. The company achieved its breakthrough with the development of specially shaped, hard-drawn copper strips for contact elements – so called Multilam. Multi-Contact is now part of the Stäubli Group.

The Challenge

An effective network was needed for company-wide development, one that would drastically cut time to develop and promote the re-use of parts.

Dassault Systèmes Response

ENOVIA SmarTeam was introduced as a PDM system to give all designers access to all current project and product data.


The use of ENOVIA SmarTeam has enabled Multi-Contact to save 60% in time to develop.
