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.


Our values – at the core of everything we do

We are leaders in industrial automation – because we understand our customers, we innovate and act.

We are an owner-managed company with a long tradition that places a premium on close customer contact. We offer comprehensive consulting and service expertise to OEMs and plant operators to fuel innovation and increase productivity. Our expert product, design, sales, logistics and installation specialists are our seal of quality for individual engineering and superior standard components.



We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers – and have product specialists who are able to provide a tailor-made solution to any task. Their years of expert advice on many areas in industrial automation generate a high level of trust and create clear added value through simple and efficient processes. Our proximity to our customers and the high availability of our services and products are decisive.


We are innovators. It’s the only way for us to find optimal components for any application, together with our customers. Our expertise and all-round knowledge of the sector minimise risk and streamline the engineering process. We interact extensively with leading technological partners from all areas of industrial automation, which gives us the edge and enables us to exploit synergies across disciplines and co-develop new solutions. Customers can contact our specialists directly and quickly benefit from our comprehensive expertise. This degree of extreme flexibility opens up unparalleled options.


We act. And we act on our promises, too. With a straightforward approach in which we resolve outstanding issues immediately. We pursue the same approach with our professional, flexible supply management. We can offer a complete supply guarantee due to our short lead times and on time delivery. Horizontal structures accelerate decision-making processes. This is second nature to us as a family business.
