«This region is ideal for innovation-oriented technology companies,» Andreas Wieland, CEO and board member of Hamilton AG, declares.
The American company Hamilton is a worldwide leader in the areas of laboratory automation, sensor and medical technology. Since 1966, the company has been operating its product development and assembly in Bonaduz and also manages its marketing activities for Europe, Asia and Africa from this base.
Hamilton Bonaduz is committed to organic growth through ongoing further development and innovation. It is one of the companies with the strongest expansion in the canton of Grisons. During the last three years, more than 150 additional jobs for highly qualified employees have been created.
According to Hamilton, Grisons has numerous advantages in its favor: attractive tax conditions, affordable prices for land and real estate and highly qualified, very well trained employees. «Grisons also offers an outstanding setting for international trade companies, mechanical engineering and toolmaking, as well as mechatronics and automation,» CEO Andreas Wieland comments. The global players in the sectors of chemistry and plastics, life sciences, information and communication technology (ICT), and electronics and sensor technology that are based in the canton are another source of added value.
The business-friendly, unbureaucratic climate of the cantonal office of business and tourism encourages industrial development and thereby the companies based there as well, Andreas Wieland comments. «Thanks to the uncomplicated and direct access to government and public authorities, companies can find efficient and suitable solutions for their business needs at all times.»
