Swiss Can AG is a young and dynamic company. It belongs to the brothers Michael and Marc Grabher since the foundation. After their studies, the two skilled mechanical engineers have always worked in the packaging machine industry, that’s why they have an extensive know-how about manufacturing can filling and seaming machines. The vision to build machines to fill highly sensitive food accurately and highly hygienic into cans led to Swiss Can’s foundation and the beginning of its business activity on 1. June 2013. Michael Grabher (CEO) and Marc Grabher (CTO) lead the company today as equal partners.
In the beginning, the company was located in Au in the canton of St. Gallen. Because of the fast growth, the company location has been moved in August 2016 to the neighboring Berneck in a bigger company facility.
