History and Mission

Originally 2 separate companies. Huber was created in 1882 by Hans Rudolf Huber as a cotton mill. He quickly discovered that the fast-growing field of electrical engineering required insulated wires and he began to wrap copper wire with textiles. The company expanded rapidly into telecommunications and the chemical industry. At the same time, Gottlieb Suhner, a machinist in Herisau Switzerland was producing metal components for the embroidery industry. He moved into the wire business, specialising in producing his own rubber for the insulation of cables and connectors. Eventually, in 1969, the two family companies merged creating Huber and Suhner Switzerland which now focused its efforts on cable systems and communication transmission technology.
