About Hilti

We are committed to building a better future for our local communities and for the people with whom we work.

Hilti was founded in 1941 and evolved from a small family start-up to the trusted global business we are today. Hilti 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.

Our aim is to build a better future. We want to help our customers build faster, safer and more sustainably, while being mindful of the legacy we leave behind. We want to be proud of the mark we make on the world.

We operate our own plants, research and development centers, logistics and repair centers around the world. This ensures Hilti quality in all we do.

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.

Beyond construction

Hilti's aim is to build a better future, and that doesn’t end with the engineering and construction projects Hilti is a part of. Early on, Hilti made the decision that it would be an agent of positive change in the world, and Hilti lives that commitment through sustainability leadership, hands-on efforts from the Hilti team members and financial contributions, both at the global and local level. Hilti is privileged to be able to give back and wants to be proud of the mark we make on the world.
