Swiss pioneers in heavy goods transports
After the successful handover of the operational management to Marcel Bach and his team, Ruedi Bauberger withdraws from the day-to-day operations in summer of 2018.
As the vice president of the management board, coach and consultant, he will remain connected with the company and continues to support them actively with his comprehensive and longstanding know-how in the background.
Purchase of hydraulic gantries with a lifting capacity of 360t.
Relocation of SIGG pan and bottle operations in the Frauenfeld site with installation of new presses as heavy as 100t. Duration: 16 months.
Relocation of filling plants of Pomdor in Kiesen, Belgium to Moscow; 40 transports over the course of six months.
Sole proprietorship converted to a stock corporation.
Ruedi Bauberger joined the company.
First major contract: Rigging of new machines, tanks and silos, including machinery relocation of the old machines of the dairy Toni Molkerei Zürich on Eisgasse to the new site at Förrlibuck; took a total of two years.
At first, Rudolf worked on an hourly basis for various companies throughout Switzerland as a vehicle-mounted crane operator. Importing Japanese vehicle-mounted cranes made by Tadano was dropped because the work volume grew quickly, and various machines and factories were relocated. Initially, these tasks were performed with leased equipment, a Mercedes van, and a trailer.
Rudolf Bauberger (born 1937) worked for 17 years on the front line as truck driver, crane operator and on-site supervisor for installation and relocation projects. During those years he noticed that the companies involved were coordinated badly, if at all.
He detected this market niche and founded “BAUBERGER” as a sole proprietorship together with his wife Barbara. Specialized as a general contractor in machinery transports, crane work, and installation projects. Barbara worked as a scheduler in the company. Initially, their living room served as the office.
