We have fostered an open-minded ethos for over 200 years.
The Stämpfli ethos is characterised by enduring values. When we come into contact and work with our fellow human beings, the qualities we demand of ourselves are respect and fairness, honesty and openness, trust and self-reliance. Another distinguishing feature is our desire to perform to the best of our ability.
Stämpfli represents tradition and innovation. This is demonstrated in our well thought-out solutions, in the way that we optimise our processes and in inventions that take us and our customers and suppliers into new territory.
We put our heart and soul into our work. We keep our word, because we value dependability – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
