Who are Hilti?
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, we have approx. 33,000 employees around the world who contribute to making construction work simpler, faster and safer - while inspiring customers with technologically leading products, systems, software and services.
Our strategic objective is sustainable value creation through market leadership and differentiation. We have also been planning with financial foresight since Hilti was first founded in 1941 by brothers Eugen and Martin Hilti. All company shares are in the possession of the Martin Hilti Family Trust, which ensures the long-term continuity of the business. Hilti aims to build a better future with sustainable and innovative solutions.
Hilti equally supports society and the environment to actively pursue a better future - both within and outside of the core business area. In addition to the charitable Hilti Foundation, our values of integrity, courage, teamwork and commitment are demonstrated every day in our interactions with team members, partners and customers.
Direct customer relationship
We strongly believe in close and trusted relationships with our customers. That's why we run a direct sales model, with around 15,000 of our team members working directly with our customers worldwide. Our sales reps and field engineers go onsite to help businesses find the best solutions - whether that's choosing the right kind of nail or designing a rebar system for a major metro system. Our customers can also buy our products directly from our Hilti stores.
