Dear customers and business partner

We have many different customers – some who just order a few spare parts over the course of the year and others who regularly order entire new machines or attachments; small municipalities, large municipalities, communal service providers that function as one-man operations and others that employee several people. This is just a selection of the customers who have been putting their trust in us for years, who stay loyal to us despite the economic roller coaster.

In the past years we have always striven to do justice to everyone. We showed our thankfulness and appreciation for your loyalty with a small, lasting present. This year, too, we would like to express our thankfulness to you, our customers and partners. In addition, we would like at the same time to thank our employees and show our appreciation for their good will and hard work.

In recent years, however, it has become increasingly complicated to consider everyone. Many state and even private organisations are establishing increasingly strict compliance rules, so that many people cannot even accept a ball-point pen or the like as a personal gift. This is very common in Germany in particular, but we think that people in Switzerland, too, have recently been sensitised through various events, especially in politics.

Therefore we have decided to donate a considerable sum of money to a charitable organisation. The recipient this year is the charity DENK AN MICH (THINK ABOUT ME). This solidarity charity run by the Swiss radio and television broadcasting company SRF campaigns for leisure activities for handicapped people. It is neutral in every respect and follows the motto «Eliminate barriers: in the holidays, in leisure time – in the head!»

Business in this past short year was better than in the previous year. Winter 17/18 in particular showed its pleasant side – although not in all geographical locations – but in such a way that resulted in a very noticeable sustainability, mixed with the current economic situation, which also improved. Indeed, one could almost talk about a mini-hype.

Not only that, we launched two genuine new developments. The brand-new ZAUGG Rolba 500 self-propelled snow blower, which we presented to the public for the first time at the last Suisse Public in 2017 and then at the beginning of 2018 at the IFAT in Munich. Secondly we brought the Steambeast onto the market, which is intended to reduce our dependence on the winter. That was also demonstrated to the European public at the Suisse Public 2017 and then again in the autumn of the same year at a special trade fair in Berlin, followed by a presentation in spring 2018 before an even larger expert audience at the world-leading trade fair for the cleaning industry, the INTERCLEAN in Amsterdam. At the same time we organised many practical demonstrations, especially in Germany, where the ZAUGG Steambeast was able to prove its suitability.

Our dependence on winter events, which is shaped too much by the current climate change, has shown us with increasing urgency that it is important to free oneself from the tried and tested and to go down new, innovative roads. And of course we are working on that with the necessary dedication.

In this spirit we wish you a Merry Christmas and every success and happiness in the New Year in all areas and circumstances.

Best regards
Daniel Frutiger, CEO

ZAUGG world leader

The new Scania is not only very much more convenient and comfortable than the old truck, it is also fitted with a ZAUGG G33, in my opinion the Rolls-Royce of snow ploughs.

Marc DufeyCorboz Transporte, Oron-le-Châtel. From a discussion of snow ploughs in the SWISSCAMION journal

It is amazing what you can do with the ZAUGG. When you get to know it and find out how agile and responsive they are, there is nothing better for building an excellent pipe. We all agree on this fact.
