company room for future growth. The building sits on a triangular-shaped lot that mirrors the shape of the Rego-Fix logo.

Rego-Fix CEO Richard Weber describes the company’s new building as “an important milestone that expresses our commitment to support the American market with Swiss high precision tools.”
