Landis & Gyr laid the foundations for an industrial company in the Bündner highlands in the year 1966/67 with the foundation of the Disentis Aussenwerk (the Disentis external factory). The basic idea developed from "The exodus of the young people". This was the origin of the initial training workshop for toolmakers. Later, in the boom years between 1970 and 1980, the power coil manufacturing facilities were also relocated to Disentis and a precision manufacturing department was formed. In 1988, Landis & Gyr decided either to sell or to close all the factories, including Disentis. The purchase of the factory by Mr Hug of RH-Holding enabled work in the factory to continue and guaranteed the safety of the jobs there. On the 1st of January 1989, the company distec ag was founded.
