Vision and Strategy

Metall Zug AG is a listed Swiss industrial holding company with an entrepreneurial family as its main shareholder. Metall Zug adopts a decidedly long-term perspective. With the focus of its Business Units and holdings on industrial enterprises with premium and precision products in attractive markets, the Metall Zug Group creates sustainable added value for its shareholders.

The Metall Zug Group is developing from an industrial group of companies into a holding company of industrial enterprises with the potential to generate added value. In the context of this transformation, the autonomy and responsibilities of the Business Units were extended. This allows the Business Units to largely implement their strategies independently and act with greater flexibility and speed. At the same time, it significantly increases the strategic flexibility of the Metall Zug Group and its Business Units, and thus creates additional potential for growth.

Going forward, Business Units can be hived off, allowing Metall Zug to confine itself to the role of strategic anchor shareholder. This process of making Business Units independent may result in shares in these business units being distributed to the shareholders of Metall Zug AG and these units themselves becoming directly listed companies. Metall Zug AG will continue to hold a significant ownership interest in the independent Business Units and ensure that business development is synonymous with long-term value creation.

Entrepreneurial Freedom and Independence

Metall Zug achieves an optimum balance between conservative financial policies and entrepreneurial ambition. Thanks to its financial strength and conscious diversification, Metall Zug is able to act autonomously and make independent decisions – even during economically difficult periods.

Economies of Diversity

Metall Zug taps into the diversity of its Business Units and holdings as a source of innovation, benchmarks and best practice. The entrepreneurial freedom and clear focus of those units and holdings is a key element in its success. The Group companies each have their own market presence – including their own, independent brands.

Business Development and Growth

The Business Units and participations seek to achieve sustainable and profitable growth by delivering innovation and high-quality products and services, as well as by extending the offering along the value chains of its customers.

Investment opportunities for external growth are primarily being sought within the existing Business Units

Driven by Value, Aiming for Success

All those in positions of responsibility act with a view to success and in line with the Metall Zug values: any success can only really be counted as such if it is sustainable and has been achieved with due respect for society and without tarnishing the reputation of the Metall Zug Group as a whole.

Development of Real Estate

Metall Zug uses its real estate to create the best possible conditions for the industrial activities of its Business Units and participations. It develops properties and sites in a targeted and sustainable fashion.

The further development of the major transformational project at the main site in Zug, the “Technologycluster Zug”, is based on a long-term implementation horizon
