Kistler is a global market leader for dynamic pressure, force, torque and acceleration measurement technology, with cutting-edge technologies providing the basis for the Group’s modular solutions.

Customers in industry and scientific research benefit from Kistler’s experience as a development partner, enabling them to optimise their products and processes so as to secure a sustainable competitive edge.

Some 2,050 employees at more than 60 facilities across the globe are dedicated to the development of new solutions – offering application specific services at the local level. Ever since it was founded in 1959, the Kistler Group has grown hand-in-hand with its customers and in 2020 it posted sales of CHF 361 million (€327 million), with around 9% of this figure reinvested in research and technology – with the aim of delivering better results to every customer.

“We have weathered 2020, which was dominated by the coronavirus pandemic. However, our extensive cost cutting measures are starting to bite, and we can already plan with more certainty again,” comments Rolf Sonderegger, CEO of the Kistler Group (pictured left). “Thanks to simpler organisational structures, we can now cater with greater agility to markets both inside and outside the automotive industry, and we can respond to the requirements of customers in diverse segments – from technicians to managers.”
