The Swiss pumping pioneer Emile Egger founded the company in 1947 in Cressier and began to manufacture immediately. Already back then, the speciality was already the pumping of fluids laden with solids and gas. Thanks to its careful, step-by-step expansion, the enterprise was able to retain its independence and has remained a family undertaking to this day. Since then, the grandson of the founder has taken over the controls and thus secured a harmonious succession.
As an independent, family business which develops and manufactures pumps, we lead the field in providing solutions to the challenges of conveying difficult fluids, giving long-term, reliable support to our customers helping them to succeed.
Egger pumps are durable. The sustainability of our products has formed the basis for our company's good reputation for over 65 years. Even in today's manufacturing culture, it has remained our goal to manufacture pumps of exceptionally long endurance. Egger Pumps will continue to be characterised in the years to come by their long trouble-free operation and high availability.
We seek to be close to our customers – geographically, as well. Thus, in the course of the years, we have built subsidiaries in 10 European countries, Asia and North America. A network of trading partners puts us that much closer to our customers.
Maximisation of profit has never been and is not now the focus of our decision-making. The attitude of the owner's family is driven much more by the sense of responsibility that one of the largest work providers and teachers feels toward the canton of Neuenburg. The workplace security of the – in some cases – several generations of employees working at the company is of special concern to company management.
A generational change
