FELCO featured on CBS News

FELCO SA is being featured on CBS News. The company is featured in a video about JESA SA which manufactured a ball bearing that is essential to the operation of the new FELCO 822 electric pruning shears.

The FELCO 822 electric pruning shears are featured in this video which was recently broadcast on the American media outlet CBS News. Shot for the “Global Thought Leaders” series, which highlights innovative companies from around the world, this film focuses on JESA SA, a manufacturer of ball bearings in Villars-sur-Glâne (FR).

FELCO consulted this company for the development of its latest model of electrically assisted pruning shears. “For their operation, we needed a very special ball bearing that was light, compact and, above all, able to withstand heavy loads when cutting. JESA was the only company that was truly customer-oriented and tried to understand our problem in order to provide a solution,” explains Stéphane Poggi, co-CEO of FELCO SA, who talks about this collaboration in the film.

Listening to the customer and responding to their needs is JESA SA's strength. The company specializes in the development of customized solutions. “We do not have a standard range of ball bearing models. Each of our products is tailored,” says Arnaud Lienhart, CEO of JESA SA. The collaboration with FELCO is therefore exemplary and was specially chosen to appear in the CBS News film.

JESA SA is present on niche markets where extreme precision, manufacturing quality and specificity are essential. The company works for industry, the automotive sector, construction and medical and consumer goods in general. As Arnaud Lienhart points out, “Ball bearings are a component that can be found everywhere in technologies involving mechanical parts in motion.” JESA ball bearings can be found in sports cars as well as in drills, conveyor lines, sheep shears, roller-skates and now the FELCO 822 electric pruning shears.
