Performance counts.

We're not content with being "runner-up". Our aim is to be the clear number one in the sectors in which we operate. We differentiate ourselves by means of innovative products and services, a strong market presence and by building and nurturing successful customer relationships and competent partnerships. We are convinced that an in-depth understanding of the applications is decisive for creating added value for the various customer segments.

Performance and competitiveness are all part of the corporate culture at KAISER AG. This "self-concept" is also lived when we actively participate in the world of sports such as motorsport or the traditional “Schwingen” (Swiss wrestling). Performance counts!

“SCHWINGEN” (SWISS WRESTLING)

Since 2020, KAISER AG has been sponsoring the Swiss wrestler Joel Wicki. The long-term agreement is a mutual vote of confidence. “With Joel Wicki, we’ve succeeded in recruiting an ideal and authentic brand ambassador for our mobile walking excavators. As a qualified construction machine mechanic, the ‘rising star’ of Swiss wrestling and his personality are the ideal fit for KAISER AG.”

The successful 22-year-old Swiss wrestler Joel Wicki from Entlebuch already has some impressive sporting achievements to his name. These include 44 laurel wreath crowns, 11 crown festival wins and other awards at leading Schwing festivals.

Joel Wicki: “I’m wholeheartedly committed to my profession of construction machine mechanic. It’s therefore a great pleasure and an honour to enter into partnership with KAISER AG. The excavators and vehicles made by KAISER AG set benchmarks in our industry and stand for top quality and performance. I would like to thank the Liechtenstein family business for their fantastic support.”

Joel Wicki

Joel Wicki is a Swiss wrestler from Sörenberg in Entlebuch. His great successes include victories at the 2018 Central Swiss Wrestling and Alpine Festival as well as the Mountain Crown Festival on the Rigi, twice on the Stoos and at the Schwarzsee Lake. In 2019, he won the first crown and was overall winner at the Swiss National Wrestling and Alpine Festival in Zug. Joel also came top in the official national overall ranking for the first time in 2019.

 

Safe and precise manoeuvring when pushing machines to their limits

This is particularly important for the drivers of our mobile walking excavators.  With over 50 joystick functions to control – often while working in extremely difficult terrain –   the complexity of handling these machines is comparable to flying a helicopter and consequently calls for talent and great experience on the part of the driver. That is why mobile walking excavator drivers are seen as the "specialists" in the field of construction machines.
