Information security


Key facts

On 21 March 2018, the Federal Council decided to reconfigure those business units of RUAG (as it was then known) that work almost exclusively for the Swiss Armed Forces into a new group company, RUAG MRO Holding AG (MRO CH), and a subsidiary, RUAG AG. These units were to be split from the rest of RUAG (RUAG International), which conducts international civil and military business. The Federal Council’s decision was aimed at increasing information security and ensuring robust, transparent service provision for the Armed Forces at optimal cost. It was planned that MRO CH would continue performing its statutory mandate – ensuring the provision of equipment to the Armed Forces – while having the opportunity to expand its business in other areas.
