History

Swiss Intech Sarl was founded in 2003 in the cellar of Jean-François Treyvaud, the inventor of the Pumpilo®. A first prototype of micro desalination of sea water is realized.

Then from 2011 to 2018, a multidisciplinary and enthusiastic team was built around a new pumping concept. This team contributed to the realization of 5 prototypes and a pre-series of 30 Pumpilo® pumps that were sold and installed in several countries such as Senegal, Congo, Cape Verde, France and Switzerland.

At the end of 2018, Swiss Intech Ltd. becomes a public limited company (AG) and registers the Pumpilo® pump brand in 2019.

In the middle of 2020, Swiss Intech SA creates a new range of stainless steel pumps and establishes a first industrial production.

Our mission

We manufacture our range of solar and sustainable pumps under the Pumpilo® brand with Swiss know-how and precision to make water accessible in areas where it is hard to reach or in small quantities.
