Specialist groups bring together individual sub-sectors within the MEM industries. The activities of the 27 Swissmem specialist groups are highly diverse. Their services offer an added value which goes far beyond the standard Swissmem membership.

One focus area for the specialist groups is that of sharing experiences and networking. They also collect market-relevant performance indicators and data. Another important area is that of marketing activities, e.g. within the context of joint appearances at leading international trade fairs or through publication of brochures and specialist articles. Many specialist groups are also members of European or global umbrella organizations. Last but not least, the specialist groups provide input on their needs when changes are made to curricula at vocational training and university of applied sciences level.

Each specialist group organizes itself and enjoys a great deal of autonomy within Swissmem. Their activities are primarily determined by their committees and the needs of the member companies. Swissmem provides the administrative infrastructure for the groups and takes care of the professional organization of their activities.
