Success Stories

Mühldorfer GmbH & Co. KG

«To choose Switzerland as the site for our sales and distribution operations couldn’t have been strategically more beneficial. Anselm Hintermann opened our subsidiary in February 2012 in Appenzell while he was still a graduate student at the University of St.Gallen. By July 2013 I had followed him to Appenzell as managing director. Through the decision in favor of a Swiss location, we were able to combine several benefits for our international business strategy. For one, here we recruit multilingual, internationally thinking employees.  Then there is the outstanding logistics with great accessibility of highways and the airport, the very short distances to authorities and administrative offices and the thoroughly efficient cooperation with these partners in government. And not least of all, some of our more important customers do have an office in Switzerland as well.»

Stihl Kettenwerk GmbH & Co KG

«In retrospect, moving to the St.GallenBodenseeArea was the Stihl Group’s best investment decision of the past 30 years. Already then, the canton St.Gallen was an outstanding location, and it continues to be just that today. We are very happy that our investment of 100 million Swiss Francs will create even more jobs for the acutely business-friendly region of St.Gallen.»

Joachim Zappe, Managing Director Stihl Kettenwerk GmbH & Co KG, Wil (SG)

Success Stories

Zoot International AG

«During the search for the best headquarters location for Zoot we examined and considered several European countries and cities. The main reasons we selected a location in the St.GallenBodenseeArea were the region’s strength and density of similarly positioned B2B software companies. And there’s also a local IT cluster that actively and strongly supports the high-tech community on the ground.»
