Zehnder Group 125 years
Zehnder – making history. Since 1895
This year, Zehnder is celebrating its 125th anniversary. Over the years, the company has undergone a constant process of change, continually reinventing itself in line with the times. In 1895, Jakob Zehnder established his small workshop in Gränichen in Switzerland. This step marked the first page in a success story that the fourth generation of the Zehnder family continues to write to the present day. Whether as a bicycle workshop or as the producer of the legendary “Zehnderli” light motorcycle, the name Zehnder has always been synonymous with innovation and ingenious approaches. In 1930, the company revolutionised the market with the introduction of the world’s first steel tube radiator – Zehnder Charleston – a classic radiator that remains a popular choice to this day. However, the company didn’t stop at decorative radiators: over the years, the range expanded to include products for comfortable indoor ventilation, heat exchangers, heating and cooling ceiling systems, and clean air solutions for use in industry. The company’s strong pioneering spirit saw it transform from a small mechanical workshop to an international group of companies with around 3500 employees spread across 70 countries.
Zehnder – shaping the future
The Zehnder Group is committed to achieving further milestones and intends to play an active part in shaping the future. “The foundation for these goals is the enormous amount of trust placed in us by our customers. Securing this trust is our overarching priority, and we want to achieve this together with our dedicated and committed employees,” says chairman of the board of directors Hans-Peter Zehnder. With its energy-efficient solutions for a healthy and comfortable indoor climate, the Group is taking into account the growing awareness of the importance of healthy living, the environment and sustainability. A passion for innovation paired with forward planning and sustainable action will continue to form the guiding principles by which Zehnder is able to meet and exceed its customers’ expectations.
Zehnder is looking forward to writing the next chapter in this extraordinary success story together with you.
