Switches and Hats


APEM was established over 50 years ago in Caussade, a town in the South West of France renowned for the production of hats. While the manufacturing plant in Montpezat-de-Quercy continued to produce industrial switches, the new location was given the mission to develop and manufacture miniature and low current switches.

This has continued to this day and grown into new market sectors; as new products were developed the need to expand in Caussade was realized. As the headquarters of the APEM group, the building now houses central functions, an engineering office and production teams for switches and panel solutions.

In total, more than 250 people are working on this site, to manufacture human-machine interfaces of the highest quality and to serve our customers in the best possible way.

This year we will celebrate this anniversary with our colleagues in France as it is a symbol of our heritage. With thanks to the past generations, who have contributed to APEM's growing success, without whom none of this would be possible!

We would like to pay tribute to all the women and men who have worked at Caussade, and who continue to do so. For this reason, until January 2022, we will be researching and collecting memories gleaned by our former and current employees and putting them together in a book. We will then publish and distribute this souvenir booklet. See you in March 2022!
