PCB manufacturing

Hello all, I've been ordering PCBs from China and I never had any problems, prices are fair, quality is acceptable, shippings are fast and cheap. For my last order I went with a PCB manufacturer from Germany, China delivery times weren't acceptable because of the Chinese new year.

My total order amount with the German manufacturer is about 50 EUR, + 20 EUR for shipping. They sent my package with UPS, and today UPS asked me to pay them about 50 CHF for import fees. I checked the bill, it's 1.6 CHF for VAT, about 26 CHF for government fees and the rest is UPS / broker fees.

I'd like to know if anyone knows a relatively cheap / affordable PCB manufacturer and SMT assembly service in Switzerland, for prototyping, or probably a PCB manufacturer abroad who handles the customs and clearance themselves, or if anyone has any tips regarding this and how to handle this type of shipping?

Thanks in advance!
