Yesterday, today and tomorrow. Welti-Furrer transports goods using the latest equipment and resources.
Jakob Furrer founded the original company in the late 1830s. This small horse-based haulage firm quickly grew into a highly professional transport company. Furrer's son-in-law, Jakob Albert Welti, joined the company around 1880 and, in a world of increasing mobility, he infused the company with new ideas and dynamic energy.
Welti-Furrer transports virtually everything.
Furniture transport, including across international borders, led to strong growth around the turn of the century. Following his historic trip tu Zurich, even Winston Churchill thanked the company "for your excellent packaging of the gifts I recieved ". Established in the 19th century, Welti-Furrer has worked to become Switzerland's leading removal specialist.
There is no such thing as "too big" - and there never was.
This company, rich in tradition, was acquired in 1993 by the Knecht Group from Windisch, Switzerland. Under the Group's leadership it has since grown to become one of the leading transport companies with an innovative and wide-ranging portfolio of services, which are available via ten branch offices covering all of Switzerland. Today, Welti-Furrer packs and transports far more than just furniture and gifts.
Times are changing, even at Welti-Furrer.
Success doesn't just happen. Our company's 180-year history is proof positive that clients absolutely depend on our team's expertise and flexibility. Rightfully so, because at Welti-Furrer we leave nothing to Chance. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority - yesterday, today and tomorrow.
