Corporate Vision & Ambition

A Swiss Family Success Story

From a small family-run mechanical workshop in Gränichen, Switzerland, Zehnder grew into a leading international provider of solutions for a healthy and comfortable indoor climate. The company roots are deeply intertwined with the entrepreneurial spirit of the Zehnder family that has been shaping the company for over 125 years. As chairman of the company Hans-Peter Zehnder presides over the board of directors since 2014. Together with the board members and the executive committee he ensures that Zehnder stays on target within the long-term company strategy. Meanwhile, the next generation is already waiting in the wings. Milva Inderbitzin-Zehnder, the daughter of Hans-Peter Zehnder represents the fifth generation of the family to join the board of directors. Yet, another example of the Zehnder family's determination to continue assuming responsibility for the group in the future.
