Domicile company with US beneficiary needing bank account

Hi,
I have a company in Switzerland (Gmbh) that is a domicile company with a Swiss director. It has no employees and the beneficiaries are US citizens. A few months back we lost our bank account with UBS and need to open another one so that we can continue doing business in Switzerland. We are a legitimate company that exports goods from Switzerland and sell in the US, and pay taxes in the US. Can't seem to find a Swiss bank willing to work with us anymore. Does anyone have any ideas on opening a Swiss bank account? Are there any banks willing to do it? Is there any way to legally get around all of this mess like changing the format of the company or something? I'm in Switzerland now trying to deal with this.

Thanks,
Chris

Have you tried the local (cantonal) banks?

Your resident Swiss director should be solving this.
