About Hilti

Our drive is to be your best partner for productivity, safety and sustainability

Hilti has greatly evolved since being founded in 1941. Originally a small family start-up, Hilti's innovations and commitment to our partners' success has helped us grow into the trusted global business we are today. The Hilti company is still family-owned, with its global headquarters in Schaan in the Principality of Liechtenstein, where Martin Hilti established the company more than 80 years ago. The USA headquarters resides in Plano, Texas.

Our aim is to help sustainably increase your productivity and profitability while helping to keep you and your crew safer. We earnestly listen to your pain points to identify solutions that will help drive efficiency in your workflow. Each year, we reinvest resources for further research and development to help provide you with tools and systems to help increase your bottom line. 

Committed to building a better future

Our North American team includes about 4,000 highly-trained team members in product and software development, sales, engineering, finance, marketing, logistics and other support roles. Every employee comes to work each day committed to helping construction professionals find solutions to their challenges.

As a responsible global company, we offer our commitment to sustainability to our customers, partners, suppliers and our own team members as well as in the way we treat the environment and society. What began as steps toward a more sustainable future is evolving into a plan to help reduce waste, reduce carbon footprints and keep crews safer. We believe corporate social responsibility (CSR) goes hand in hand with long-term business success.

Keeping your safety a priority

Health, safety and the environment (HSE) are important to us, and we feel a greater responsibility to our employees, customers, suppliers and communities to help them be safer. Hilti innovations such as Active Torque Control (ATC) and Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) help keep our partners safer on the jobsite.
