Philosophy EN : Oskar Ruegg


To us as a family-owned company with a history dating back to the late 19th century, traditional values play an important role. Diligence, a sense of responsibility and quality are no empty words but a matter of course day by day. Modern values, such as sustainability, efficiency and innovative capacity, are not only vague ideas but rather something we live every single day. This creates precisely the right mixture which makes us a future-oriented Swiss company performing successfully in a highly dynamic and globalized environment.

Such a success would not have been possible had not numerous employees made their valuable contribution and still keep doing so every day. Especially as managing director, I am particularly aware of that. I know that the five generations before me also shared this opinion without reservation.

Every day, we are called upon to do our best and further improve ourselves as well as all our processes continuously. Innovative thinking and courageous acting are the keys to achieving what eventually distinguishes a successful company: Namely, to keep up the decisive competitive edge or even expand the lead.

Working for Oskar Rüegg AG, requires passion and lifeblood: “One for all, and all for one” – with personal responsibility and respect. We believe that our professional engagement – even in difficult moments – not only serves the company but also our personal development. We also believe that we will be able to excellently master all future challenges – even in view of increasing complexities and requirements – if we act as one and cooperate as one dedicated team. What holds true for the cooperation within our organization naturally applies even more to the cooperation with our customers and suppliers. As a strong team, we are willing to cooperate and bring great benefits to our partners: Namely sustained success.
