HEINIGER – a family affair
Already in its third generation, the name "Heiniger" stands for high-quality animal shearing products "Made in Switzerland". What began in 1946 as a trading company for fruit and vegetables became a globally active quality manufacturer under the management of my great-uncle Hermann Heiniger and my father Werner Heiniger, the only supplier in the world to specialise in animal shearing.
For professional shearers, only the highest quality counts. The customer proximity of the Australian, English and New Zealand subsidiaries, combined with the engineering knowledge and precision manufacturing of the Swiss manufacturing company, led to Heiniger being the proud world market leader in professional sheep shearing today.
Heiniger is a family business - and not just at management level. Our loyal and long-standing employees are part of the family. They accumulate animal shearing knowledge over decades and pass it on to younger "family members". The loyalty and commitment of the employees as well as the specialisation in the animal shearing niche are the success factors behind Heiniger.
High-quality animal shearing products "Made in Switzerland" make our customers' daily work on animals easier. This is what we will continue to stand for with our family name.
