Huggenberger AG

Huggenberger AG

HUGGENBERGER AG is a small, independent Swiss company specialised in the development and production of high-precision, physical measuring systems. Founded in 1900 by the namesake, the company was able to establish itself as a specialist for the instrumentation of dams with the instrumentation of the Schräh dam (Wägi Valley, Switzerland – at 111.6 m the world’s highest hydro dam at that time). Since then, over 450 civil engineering works were equipped with HUGGENBERGER measuring instruments.

Well known, and yet always new

In the world of civil engineering works, no project is like another, and each seemingly familiar problem requires a situation-related risk assessment and individual approach to the solution. Equally unique are the safety and monitoring concepts for the individual structures, which always require an individual instrumentation solution.

Unique physical measuring solutions – Swiss made

Here HUGGENBERGER AG presents itself as a competent partner for customised instrumentation solutions. At Horgen on Lake Zurich, all necessary instruments are built with passion and comprehensive know-how to reliably measure and display longitudinal, inclination, force or pressure variations. Our products and systems are mainly used to monitor large structures such as hydro dams, tunnels or construction wells.

Due to our good reputation, extensive experience and local presence through representatives in more than 20 countries, HUGGENBERGER AG succeeds in being active on all five continents.

Range of services of HUGGENBERGER AG

The services offered range from consulting, through development and production to assembly, commissioning and training for an instrumentation solution. In this way, HUGGENBERGER AG is able to offer a comprehensive solution from a single source – from a single sensor to the monitoring of a working joint or a network-based, automated measuring system: 

  • On request, we will advise project-managing engineers or a client in their planning of the instrumentation 
  • Development, production and tailoring of the measuring devices (sensors, cables, measuring instruments, etc.)
  • Installation of the measuring systems (excluding the works required on the actual construction), commissioning and training.
