From tradition
to future

JMH has its roots back in the 19th century. Founded 130 years ago as Jakob Müller AG, the business now known as JMH has grown to encompass five companies in the new technology, textiles, engineered process solutions and real estate sectors. Owners Stephan Bühler and Reto Kuoni are the fifth generation to take the reins. Drawing on the long and successful tradition of the parent company, the companies are evolving and utilizing modern technologies and solutions not only to compete on the market, but also to remain among its leaders.

Strategic management under
one umbrella

JMH is an owner-run holding company, with owners Stephan Bühler and Reto Kuoni taking charge of strategic management. In doing so, they draw a clear line separating themselves from the business operations of the companies. A corporate service center has been established to ensure the companies’ continued growth. This brings together the areas of digital services, innovation management, financial services, HR development and communications, and provides the companies with advice and support.

Weaving our way
ever onward

In 1887, Jakob Müller-Schneider founded his company making narrow fabric weaving systems with punch card controls. A succession of pioneering developments have seen the company grow from a small-scale Swiss business into a global corporate group. Today JMH encompasses five companies, primarily active in the textile industry. In addition to the sustainable use of resources, one of the biggest upcoming challenges is digitalization. The owners are actively engaged with this development and are investing heavily in the companies’ transformation. With innovative solutions, competitive prices and an above-average service concept, they will one day hand over Jakob Müller to the sixth generation.
