Anchored in the canton of Uri - oriented towards the world

We are SISAG

Sisag AG is part of Sisag Holding AG, which also includes Remec AG, SisWare AG, ShareCommService AG and SisCampus AG. At our sites in Schattdorf, Glattbrugg and Monthey, we employ 190 workers, who are the real source for the success of the group.

SisCampus

Last year, we extended our SisCampus at the Schattdorf site in the canton of Uri with the aim to create an inspiring workplace and training centre where 150 employees from all over central Switzerland are responsible for the success of the group.

Mission statement of the Sisag Group

1. Aim – We create jobs by working together.

Thanks to globally competitive products and services, we are able to offer highly qualified, attractive jobs and apprenticeships in the canton of Uri and elsewhere and pay a fair dividend to long-term shareholders.

Our aim is not limited to just now, it will still be valid “in 100 years”, and we want to grow sustainably. This will enable not only the individual companies of the Sisag Group to develop better, but also their employees and trainees: The more diverse the work is, the better the training and further training opportunities become.

2. Hypothesis – Safe mobility and communication are becoming increasingly important.

Despite limited natural resources, more and more people want to be mobile and connected. This is why the demand for safe, environmentally- and climate-friendly transport, information, control and production systems is increasing.

3. Values – “Honesty is the best policy” and “Success never comes easily”.

We are open and honest with our customers, partners and colleagues and therefore inspire trust. We recognise that only through excellence can we make our desired contribution to increasing the safety and conservation of natural resources.

Products and services are becoming increasingly complex and difficult for users to verify. That is why we take the utmost care to ensure that our customers trust us. Trust is the strongest bond that ties us to our customers.

We are performance oriented and fair – both internally and externally. Fair competition promotes innovation and added value. That is why we embrace competition, not only externally – in the markets for labour, capital, infrastructure, energy, materials and intermediate goods – but also internally. However, internal competition must always be in the (overall) interest of the Sisag Group. We are entrepreneurial in our thinking at all levels.

We succeed as a group because each member shares his or her knowledge, experience and concerns: Working together means speaking together and providing each other with respectful criticism, thinking together, reflecting and taking each other seriously, facing challenges together and celebrating together.

4. Success factors – We deliver excellence in niche markets through the transparent digital automation of systems.

We make our contribution to the environmentally- and climate-friendly management of growing mobility and networking by carefully developing the competence which we have acquired since Sisag AG’s foundation in 1985 in the field of electrical controls for ropeways and successively transferred to other business areas, such as the data-based electrical (digital) automation and maintenance of facilities, systems and processes, which reduces their manufacturing and operating costs and increases their safety and comfort.

We diversify widely by offering existing and new customers both established and new products and services certified according to international standards, on mutually independent markets at home and abroad.

Our customers can be assured that we support them at all times and over the entire operating life of their facilities and systems, so that their investments are protected in the long term.

Our processes, products and services are of uncompromisingly high quality: The processes are safe for the employees and protect natural resources. The products and services meet our own requirements for safety, availability and maintenance of systems, international standards and always also the customer's wishes.

Our products and services are modular and are suitable for the replacement of individual elements (retrofits) and also for the production of completely new and innovative systems.

We are flexible and consistently customer-oriented – with the aim of recognising the problems and wishes of our customers at an early stage so that we can offer innovative solutions quickly and exceed their expectations.

We are independent, committed entirely to our customers and do not enter into exclusive partnerships.

We promote the health and resilience of our employees. They are our most important success factor and are qualified, motivated, reliable and success-oriented or – in short – outstanding at all levels.

Branches

Swiss Quality

Sisag's products are designed to meet the customer's needs in terms of safety, availability, maintenance and service, and are constantly being developed and kept at the forefront of technology. We are actively involved in defining the framework conditions for the construction and operation of our systems. Be it in the field of standardisation, certification or legislation.

Company history

1985

March

Company foundation

After its foundation, the new company moves into its first registered premises on Dätwylerstrasse in Altdorf. On approx. 50 m², the first project order for the cantonally licensed Spiringen-Ratzi aerial cableway is realised in addition to small service work. [5 employees]

1987

May

Moving to Rynächtstrasse

The order for the first Swiss licensed aerial cableway FO beds was the “breakthrough” into the Swiss ropeway market. Based on Rynächtstrasse (RUA) in Altdorf, Sisag takes part in the Swiss Alpina ropeway trade fair in Martigny for the first time. The first apprenticeship position for an electronics engineer in the canton of Uri is created

1989

July

Production moves from Büren NW to Altdorf

With the relocation of the production from Büren NW to Altdorf, the former tentative start-up is now a thing of the past. In the new workshop, among other things, the control unit for the new Patrullarve chairlift in Zermatt is assembled and factory-tested.

1991

March

First order abroad

First order from outside of Switzerland, a new remote monitoring system for the funicular railway La Grande Motte in Tignes (F). The market positioning in the ropeway business can be strengthened with high-quality products and customer-oriented service. Sisag is accepted by all domestic and foreign ropeway manufacturers and operators and is viewed as a reliable partner. [40 employees]

1993

December

New products on the market

We are able to launch the newly developed remote monitoring system under the brand name SisCom for the first time on the market.

1998

March

Opening of the branch in Monthey

2002

July

Major order in the field of traffic technology

The still young company is characterised by the continued financial weakness of its customers and the global concentration process in the main market of ropeways. Fortunately, the new footholds in road transport and industry, as well as SisMedia and SisLink, help to prevent major damage. This market investment is consolidated with the first major order in the field of road transport technology on the A2 in the Seelisberg tunnel. With SisPac, based on the Simatic S7, a new technical era is launched with the Jochpass chairlift in Engelberg. New projects are continuously being implemented on the market to the full satisfaction of our customers.

Meanwhile, Lake Louise in Canada also becomes part of Sisag's clientele.
