Utz ABC - People & Culture

B

Bremgarten

In the early 1950s, Georg Utz acquired the zigzag device for sewing machines, a patented article with sole manufacturing and sales rights. Thanks to increasing sales, he soon employed 16 people. Because the space in Zurich was no longer sufficient, he rented a building from the Honegger silk weaving mill in Bremgarten, Argovia. The sole proprietorship is converted into a joint stock company and thus becomes the first and oldest production facility of the Utz Group.

Plastics recycling

As early as 1974, the first plastics recycling plant was put into operation in Bremgarten. Sustainability has a long tradition at Utz; our company founder already recognized that economy and ecology must be coordinated. In this context, the circular economy is at the center of our thoughts and actions.

S

Schüttorf

In Schüttorf in Lower Saxony, we ventured into the international arena in 1971. In that year, the first subsidiary of Georg Utz AG was founded there. In the meantime, our German site is the largest in the world and, with its 570 employees, one of the largest employers in the region.

Z

Zig-zag device

In the early 1950s, Georg Utz acquired the zigzag apparatus for sewing machines, a patented article with sole manufacturing and sales rights. After initial difficulties, he perfected the product and attracted the interest of many foreign sewing machine manufacturers. Finally, Georg Utz was able to conclude his first major deal with the Singer Company of New York. Thanks to rising sales, he soon employed 16 people. Because the space in Zurich was no longer sufficient, he rented a building from the Honegger silk weaving mill in Bremgarten, Aargau.

Zurich Höngg

Where it all started. It was in Zurich Höngg where Georg Utz founded the "Georg Utz Werkzeug- und Apparatebau" in 1947. A year later already he moved the company to Zurich Altstetten and then again in 1953 to Bremgarten in the canton of Argovia, where the Swiss subsidiary and the Holding is still located today.

The changing face of the profession

When we look back on the last 75 years of Utz, we realize that a lot has changed. Not only have our workplaces, offices, and machinery transformed over the years, but our work has changed as well.
