We passionately create enthusiastic customers and build a better future
Hilti stands for quality, innovation and direct customer relationships resulting in about 250,000 individual customer contacts each day. Based in Schaan, Liechtenstein, the company has 30,000 employees around the world who contribute to making construction work simpler, faster and safer while inspiring customers every single day with technologically leading products, systems, software and services. Many ideas for improvements are developed directly on construction sites while talking to customers. If there is an on-site challenge for which no Hilti solution exists, one will be developed. This is why the company invests approximately 6 percent of sales each year in research and development.
