By buying a workshop in Aadorf (Switzerland) in 1882, Anton Griesser laid the foundations for his company which is now steeped in tradition. The pioneering spirit and entrepreneurship of its founder has remained with the Griesser brand over time and they live on in its philosophy and products. Griesser has been a family-run company since it was founded and still retains its independence today.
2021Curtain up for "Inspired by the Sun.": From January 20, 2021, Griesser will present its new logo and brand identity. This marks the start of a new era for Griesser. The future of Griesser is sustainable and ambitious. With its new image, Griesser presents itself more sustainably, authentically and emotionally throughout Europe. The modernized logo is now reduced to its essential components. The new corporate color, a sunlit green, is mainly intended above all to create a high level of environmental awareness and a look to the future.
2020Griesser has once again won the golden phoenix in the Swiss "Architects' Darling 2020" award. After winning in the sun and weather protection category in 2018, when the award was carried out for the first time, Griesser has once again been awarded the Golden Phoenix this year. The company was convincing in every respect.
2019After 28 years, Walter Strässle, the former CEO and co-owner, is handing over operational management of the Griesser brand to Urs Neuhauser. Following this operational change, the company will remain in family hands - Walter Strässle has been appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors as of May and will actively lead the strategic direction of the Griesser brand.
Urs Neuhauser has been responsible for various business units in the construction industry for the past seven years as a member of the Group Management of the Swiss company Jansen AG. He was responsible for building up new markets, strengthening businesses and implementing innovations. Urs Neuhauser will now contribute his experience as the new CEO of Griesser and continue to develop the brand.
2018Griesser is delighted about the "Architects' Darling" Award in the sun protection category. On March 15, 2018, we received the Golden Phoenix at the award ceremony at Kaufleuten Zurich.
