Perseverance is very important. You shouldn't give up unless you have to give up. ” Elon Musk

NO PAIN. MORE GAIN : the moto that we have chosen to adopt, as much it applies to what our product should evoke to its users as the path we had to take to be able to give birth to it. Since 2015, the leaders of this ambitious project have committed themselves body and soul to achieve a vision in line with the needs of the sector: it was necessary to understand all the expectations in order to finally be able to produce a successful tool capable of evolving.


The AGv2 is a concentrate of the dreams and demands of our most important ambassadors: YOU!

So let's continue together to develop this Swiss tool that meets the expectations that we can have of our country's reputation in terms of reliability, precision, quality and technological excellence.
