The Swiss companies Winterhalter + Fenner, Dysbox, ElectroLan, Electroplast and Fabbri, which belong to the international Sonepar Group, are to merge under one homogeneous corporate brand, Sonepar Suisse, from 2021.
Since 2008, Winterhalter + Fenner and its subsidiaries have been part of the Sonepar Group based in Paris, France. Together with ElectroLAN SA, Dysbox SA, Electroplast SA and Fabbri SA, we have been part of Sonepar Suisse for 12 years. The five regional companies all work to the same quality standards and values. From March 2021, we want to present this to the outside world with a shared brand identity. The five companies will therefore lose their individual names and images to become the uniform corporate identity Sonepar Suisse. Merging under one corporate brand will make the cohesion between the companies visible to everyone with a striking, fresh design to launch the new brand identity.
We will continue to live out the corporate values that have distinguished us so far: team spirit, strong regional ties and personal contact with you, our customers. The merger of the five companies will enable us to network our 14 locations in all language regions even more effectively, strengthening our nationwide service for your business. A total of 450 employees guarantee you a fast, reliable and professional service on site. Legally, the companies will be transferred to the newly founded public limited company Sonepar Suisse AG at the end of March 2021.

Whatever your reason to contact us, we respond quickly and effectively on any channel. Our purchasing process is highly digitized at every level. Yet personal contact is still an important asset for Sonepar Suisse: Customers benefit from the expertise of our consultants (field and office staff).
Sonepar Suisse offers a top selection of branded products across every sector. Products are only included in the range after they have been carefully checked by Product Management and passed stringent quality tests. We are constantly trying out new things to provide an innovative range of services.
Product availability and fast delivery are vital, enabling customers to dispense with warehousing material and to work on a just-in-time basis.

In terms of sustainability, we take back packaging material and issue digital delivery notes.
