Tradition and innovation

175 years of expertise

Our expertise is grounded in a long tradition that goes back to the 19th century. This history of experience, combined with constant innovation, is the secret to our success.

  • Today as yesterday – Welti-Furrer moves your possessions using the latest equipment and resources.

    Jakob Furrer founded the original company in the late 1830s. This small horse-based haulage firm quickly developed into a highly qualified transport company. His son-in-law, Albert Welti, joined the company around 1880 and, in a world of increasing mobility, he infused the company with new ideas and dynamics.

  • Welti-Furrer transports virtually everything.

    Furniture transport, also across international borders, led to strong growth. Following his historic trip to Zurich, even Winston Churchill thanked the company “for your excellent packaging of the gifts I received in Zurich."

  • Nothing has ever been too large, even in earlier times.

    This company, rich in tradition, was acquired in 1993 by the Knecht Group in Windisch. Under the Group’s leadership it has meanwhile grown to become one of the leading transport companies with an innovative and wide-ranging spectrum of services. Today, Welti-Furrer packs and transports far more than just furniture and gifts.

  • Times change, even at Welti-Furrer.

    Our success is no accident. During the company’s history of more than 170 years, it has become clear that customers count above all on our staff’s expertise in safeguarding their belongings – and rightfully so, because at Welti-Furrer, we leave nothing to chance. For us, customer satisfaction takes the highest priority, today as always.
