A family company makes history
Zaugg Emballeur AG was founded on 1 January 1977 by Werner Zaugg. The site of a recently decommissioned gas plant in Schlieren proved an ideal location for storing and packing large, bulky items.
In 1985, Zaugg Emballeur AG expanded. It bought its own sites and other properties covered by leases from the city of Zurich. Plenty of space meant that the management could expand its warehousing services and found the “Facility Management” department.
In 1991, Zaugg Emballeur AG reached another milestone. On 1 July, it founded the Biel branch based in Brügg. In 1996 the company moved to Biel, and in 2011 moved again within Biel to another location. At the same time, the Biel branch was renamed “Werk Biel”.
In 1998, the takeover of the family company by the second generation was initiated. Son Michael Zaugg took over the management of the company, while Werner Zaugg continued to act as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
