Who we are

Human to Human Communications

At The Bloc in Switzerland we strive to be a leading creative, health focused communications agency. Founded in 1996, under the name X-Ray AG, we quickly became one of the biggest Swiss agencies specialising in health communications.

In August 2023, we have fully integrated with The Bloc, the only true global health-native agency that uniquely offers the most effective behaviour-based communications platform (BE-COMMS) for global health marketing and medical communications. With offices in New-York, Milan, Munich and many other locations, we can take on any regional and global project.

Still, we are a health-native Swiss agency, working closely with health companies for 27 years.

BE GREAT
TO DO GOOD

Alongside our broad omnichannel marketing solutions, we also offer our in-depth strategic communication services. Simply add our business unit horsepower when you need it to develop and leverage your brand. Sometimes, good strategy asks for the ability and willingness to say no in order to find new paths and challenge existing structures. There might be moments where we become a communications sparring partner, but for our customers, we will always go that extra mile.

Our team

Collaboration is key for our multidisciplinary team. Our communication methods should work for humans which is why we focus on collaboration rather than only being suppliers. This is how we can create outstanding solutions.

Acquisition of X-Ray by The Bloc

The strategic integration of X-Ray into the Bloc Global Group was the culmination of our longstanding, fruitful collaboration, nurtured over years during which X-Ray represented Switzerland within the Bloc Global network for numerous regional and global pharmaceutical projects.

X-Ray's strong position as a robust, Swiss-based pharma-focused communications agency has been greatly enriched by Bloc's wealth of expertise, knowledge, and insights, seamlessly woven into our local client endeavours over many years.

As part of the Bloc Global Group, X-Ray's evolution continues, allowing us to offer our clients an even more expansive range of innovative services. The Bloc's expertise in medical strategy, world-class creativity, innovative thinking, and holistic omnichannel engagement now merge harmoniously with our own strengths. A shared foundation of "Applied Behavioural Science" serves as the bedrock of our collective essence.
