The founding of Ascom
Concentration of resources in research, development, production and sales was
the primary objective behind the founding of Ascom. As early as 1984 Autophon,
Hasler and Zellweger had contracted to co-operate more closely. The financial
merger in June 1987, leading to the creation of Ascom Holding Ltd, was a logical
and meaningful continuation of the course adopted three years earlier.
formally began operations with a new corporate structure on 1 July 1987. The
merger was implemented retroactively to 1 January 1987
