The company develops and manufactures products, systems, software and services that provide the construction and energy sectors with clear added value. Hilti stands for quality, innovation and direct customer relationships. The company has roughly 250,000 individual interactions each day, meaning that many innovative ideas are developed directly on construction sites. If there is a challenge on the construction site for which there is no Hilti solution, one will be developed. This is why the company, based in Schaan, Liechtenstein, invests more than 6 percent of sales each year in research and development.
All of Hilti’s activities, every day, are aimed at enthusing customers. The strategic aim is sustainable value creation through market leadership and differentiation. The company, founded in 1941 by brothers Eugen and Martin Hilti, also plans with financial foresight. All company shares are in the possession of the Martin Hilti Family Trust, which ensures the long-term continuity of the company. Hilti builds a better future – with sustainable and innovative solutions. The company accepts an equal amount of responsibility for society and for the environment so that it can actively pursue a better future also outside the core business area. In addition to the charitable Hilti Foundation, the company’s values of integrity, courage, teamwork and commitment contribute to building a better future. These values are lived out every day by roughly 27,000 employees in interactions with team members, partners and customers.
