Mich. clock co. unveils Swiss railway clocks at Expo

Posted on October 5, 2011

Lumichron Clocks of Grand Rapids, Mich., a commercial clock manufacturer, incorporating and distributing Swiss equipment is collaborating with the manufacturer of Swiss Railway Clocks — MOBATIME of Switzerland. 

The U.S. lacks clocks as common fixtures in rail stations and airport terminals, compared to most other countries. Now, it is possible in the U.S., with these robust, sophisticated clocks, to have highly accurate, reliable time systems for greater passenger comfort, promote increased ridership and maximize financial savings. 

Family owned since 1938, MOBATIME is the supplier of rail station and airport clocks for Switzerland, France, Germany, and other European and global clients and is the premier brand for innovative time display, time distribution and synchronization systems. Juerg Lutz, CEO of MOBATIME, will be present for the duration of the show. 

Owned and operated since 1984 by Ian Macartney, Lumichron’s projects range from a single exterior building clock to multi-faceted tower clocks, to synchronized clock systems used in rail stations and airport terminals. Lumichron will present a genuine Swiss Railway clock, MOBATIME digital/system clocks, and time systems at the Expo.  

Lutz and Macartney will be available at Booth #4751 to demonstrate how every clock, in an entire rail system, city or country-wide, is exactly synchronized, accurate to the second.
