Our history

Swisslog traces its roots back to Sprecher + Schuh AG, founded in the year 1900 in the Swiss town of Aarau. Initially, the company’s primary area of activity was energy distribution. Beginning in the mid-1980s, its core businesses were sold to the French Alstom Group (high and medium voltage, 1985) and the U.S. company Rockwell/Allen-Bradley (low voltage, 1993). Increasingly, Sprecher + Schuh began to focus on automation technology, today’s core business. Acquisitions such as Translift, Digitron and OWL expanded the group. In 1994, Sprecher + Schuh changed its name to Swisslog. Swisslog quickly established itself as a leading global provider of best-in-class automation solutions for hospitals, warehouses and distribution centers recognized for its outstanding expertise, service and quality.

In December 2014, KUKA, a leading global supplier of intelligent automation solutions, acquired Swisslog in the course of a public tender offer. Until July 2015, Swisslog was listed at the SIX Swiss Exchange. Since August 2015, Swisslog has been fully integrated in the KUKA Group.
