In short: we offer 360° Swiss electrotechnics.

The story of the Burkhalter Group begins in 1959, with Ruth and Ernst Burkhalter establishing an individual company in Zurich and taking on four employees. The company was sold to the Zellweger-Luwa Group in 1987, with further management buy-outs following in 1997 and 2000. Burkhalter Holding Ltd has been listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange Ltd since June 2008.
