Egro Industrial Systems AG

The Egro Industrial Systems AG, founded in 1849, is one of the oldest industrial companies in Switzerland. Innovations such as the Bircherraffel, the first fully automatic coffee machine or patents in the field of sanitary fittings come from it.

Today, the focus of Egro Industrial Systems AG is mainly on contract manufacturing of large series in the field of tool-related sheet metal forming such as hydromechanical deep drawing, pressing and punching. It also has a large welding competence (e.g. 3D and pressure vessels). In flexible sheet metal forming, the Egro Industrial Systems AG is oriented towards smaller and medium-sized quantities.
