Perfect service happens in the best families

The best ideas develop permanently and not overnight. At least if you are committed to progress.

We must stay agile if we want to move things. Continuously improving what is good to provide you with the perfect solution. That is our mission. And has been since 1945. Bachofen is 100% family-owned and managed by the third generation of owners. Our commitment to your success has made us a leading company in the field of industrial automation. Our strong market position in Switzerland and Liechtenstein is based on high-quality products that are enhanced with technical, commercial and logistics services. Our aim is to improve your productivity and strengthen Switzerland as a location for production sites. The foundation is formed of high-quality work and innovations. But only through holistic services can we reap our greatest reward: your trust, and the certainty that we are your long-term partner.
