The production of high-quality writing instruments is a multifaceted job, spanning the initial technical drawings for tools through to final production. The individual components of a writing instrument go through departments such as metal-working, electro-plating, injection-moulding and nib manufacture, and finally come together to be hand-assembled. The high level of vertical integration in the production process at Montblanc culminates in the company's sophisticated toolmaking design and construction.
Staff from the project management and production planning departments are responsible for the coordinated introduction of a new product, both into the on-going production process and into the regular optimisation of production costs. The production logistics department is responsible for supplying the correct quantities of materials on time, and develops methods for stock and through-put control of materials.
Montblanc's leather goods are produced in the most famous leather region in the world, namely Florence. Traditional skills, expert craftsmanship, high quality and long-standing know-how are combined to create the finest luxury-quality leather goods.
The on-site staff are responsible for the research, development, prototyping, production and quality control. This is the right job for people with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a thorough knowledge of the leather market, the products, competitors and trends.
A quiet place in the Jura mountains, Le Locle is one of the watchmaking centres of Switzerland. It was there that Montblanc Montre S.A. came into being, a Manufacture that produces its own movements, developed entirely in-house, as well as watches of utter technical and artistic perfection.
Montblanc Villeret, which evolved from Minerva, devoted itself to “Haute Horlogerie”, the manufacture of the finest hand-made watches using Swiss tradition and the most up-to-date engineering skills.
The most important prerequisites for a competent watchmaker are a steady hand, patience and passion, combined with the specialist knowledge required.
Four departments are involved in the manufacture of Montblanc jewellery, namely Technical Engineering, Purchasing, Planning and Quality Management. They work on developing the product, on market research for jewellery and precious stones, and organise precious-stone suppliers. In this, accurate production planning is just as important as product control.
Our designers make sketches and, using 3D CAD models, produce the technical drawings and specifications from which prototypes are made. After initial tests and stringent quality checks the jewellery is then produced in accordance with a detailed plan.
Success in the Montblanc jewellery team is open to anyone with creativity, organisational talent and excellent technical knowledge of jewellery.
