Our History

Beating gravity for more than 120 years

Brugg Group is a Swiss-based global group with more than 120 years of experience in rope and cable technology. In 1896, the foundation of our company was laid when founder Gottlieb Suhner opened a cable factory in Brugg, Switzerland.

In 1910, Brugg became the first company in Switzerland to manufacture ropes for mountain cable cars. Kabelwerke Brugg entered the global market in 1985 with the establishment of a branch in Houston, Texas. The wire ropes manufacturing segment was extended that same year with the acquisition of Schweizerische Seilindustrie AG, based in Shaffhausen.
