Philosophy



«Creating future value in collaboration with our customers»

Högg AG now counts as a major player throughout Europe, with a specialist range of high-performance mechanical manufacturing technology that includes engineering and systems management services.

Our customers can count on the design and production of prototypes, one-off and series-produced items, plus complete system components.

Our highly-efficient Product Engineering Department is there to provide our customers with innovative solutions in the form of cost-effective construction, manufacturing processes and materials. Our core skills (profiling technology and CNC machining) are continuously being both broadened and deepened, thanks to a carefully-targeted program of investment in these areas.

A constant urge to come to grips with the very latest in manufacturing technology and materials means that we always recognize innovation when we see it and are able to harness it for our own purposes.
The power to innovate, solid reliability and high performance are three basic tenets of our organization.

A zero-fault mentality permeates all our activities in the area of services, thus guaranteeing full cost-effectiveness and constant improvements in business performance.

We encourage open discussion among our employees, and allow their motivation, customer-oriented outlook and sense of own responsibility to contribute to the assured success of our enterprise.
