The generational change has taken place at Jakob Müller Holding AG based in Frick. Stephan Bühler and Reto Kuoni are the fifth generation to take over responsibility for the companies. Jakob Müller Holding AG includes Jakob Müller AG Frick, Benninger AG, List Technology AG, TexTrace AG and Jakob Müller Immobilien AG.
The generation change in Jakob Müller Holding AG (JMH) has been completed this year: Stephan Bühler and Reto Kuoni are now in charge of the traditional JMH based in Frick. Just like their predecessors, they have set themselves clear goals: to continue to be among the best nationally and internationally with modern solutions and technologies.
The focus is on topics such as mechanization and digitalization. In doing so, they are building on the 130-year history of the parent company in Frick and are continuing to pursue their goal of a modern Swiss family-owned company that is anchored in the Fricktal valley and internationally networked.
In addition to the sustainable use of resources, the focus of the upcoming developments is strongly on digitization. This influences both business models and the form of cooperation with employees, customers and suppliers. In just a few weeks, a new communication tool in the form of an app for improved internal exchange will be introduced at JMH companies worldwide. Of course, this step was also decided upon because of the current second wave of the pandemic. Stephan Bühler: "In these extraordinary times, it is particularly important that we reach all employees and strengthen personal exchange".
The acquisition is part of the carefully planned succession planning in Jakob Müller Holding AG. Stephan Bühler and Reto Kuoni are already the fifth generation to assume responsibility for the companies. It is important for the two new owners to remain true to their values as a traditional family-owned company based in Switzerland: "We assume social responsibility and are reliable," says Reto Kuoni.
