In 1941 Martin Hilti founded the company with 5 employees in a garage in the Principality of Liechtenstein. Today Hilti employs more than 20,000 people in 120 countries on 5 continents and is a global leader in the construction industry.
All shares of the company are owned by the Martin Hilti family trust which has a long term oriented stakeholder approach. This guarantees Hilti’s independence and stability.
We have ambitious targets for the future with a clear vision and strategy. High customer satisfaction, being a ‘great place to work’ for all our team members and sustainable profitable growth are the strategic targets of our long term vision.
Our company is always searching for people who want to move things forward and bring new perspective and innovative ideas. We continuously invest in the further development of our team members by providing them opportunities across functional and geographical borders as well as to pursue a career as an expert.
We made the first breakthroughs when we introduced the unique DX direct fastening technology and the electro pneumatic hammering principle deployed in rotary hammers. We continue to set the standards in the construction industry through innovative products, systems and services. The latest examples are fleet management and the broad range of solutions that enhance health and safety on the construction site.
