About Swisspearl

Built upon strong values

As a Swiss family-owned company, we think in terms of future generations, and for decades we have been doing what we do best: Through curiosity, passion, and commitment, we turn natural raw materials into novel and sustainable products for facades, interiors, and garden areas. 

The headquarters of today's Swisspearl Group are located in Niederurnen (Switzerland), where one of the first production facilities for fiber cement was founded in 1903. However, the success story of our fiber cement began as early as 1894 in Vöcklabruck, Austria. There, where it was invented by Ludwig Hatschek. 

Today we are proud of our leading position in the innovation and technology of this material, which is used worldwide for the design of architecture and living spaces, exterior and interior. 

Swisspearl stands for Swiss quality  -  worldwide.

Our mission for the environment
We think and act sustainably

The environment and ecology have played an important role in our corporate activities for many years: What is new is that we are publishing our measures and results for the first time. In 2013, we signed a target agreement on CO2 tax exemption with the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment in order to increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions at the same time. The goals defined therein were developed in close cooperation with the Energy Agency for Industry (EnAW) organization commissioned by the federal government. The specified energy efficiency targets and CO2 intensity are checked and reported annually. 

A major goal was the elimination of fossil fuels. Today, the Niederurnen site is fully connected to the district heating network of the canton’s waste incineration plant. In addition, thermal renovations on buildings and energy efficiency measures for lighting, motors, compressors and other drives are continuously pursued. The use of photovoltaic systems on our building roofs has also helped to reduce energy consumption. 

Together, we can realize the energy revolution in Switzerland by 2050.
