Unimec SA was founded in 1979 by a company specialised in watch dials manufacturing. In 1999, the company became independent. In 2013, E. Remonnay and C. Froidevaux took over the company.
At the beginning, Unimec was working in the automation field and the company has become a reference in this sector, especially with its tables with reciprocating movement and its transport arms. In the 2000s Unimec diversified its activity by turning towards other business sectors such as the production of machines and equipment for watch, medical and microtechnology industry.
