Celebrating 75 years!

Our story began in Switzerland back in 1942. The then 24-year-old Hans Oetiker founded a small workshop at lake Zurich. He was driven by the simple need for a strong and reliable connection. And he never stopped inventing. Ultimately, it led him to patent the world’s first ear clamp in 1951.

One idea always led to the next. Our company’s remarkable development gained momentum. Technical and marketing innovations began to produce success after success.

Today, the Oetiker Group produces billions of products every year. The company employs development and application engineers around the world, committed to creating the connections that advance our lives, driven by the entrepreneurial spirit and exceptional inventiveness of our company’s founder.

We are honored to be celebrating 75 years of service to our customers and look forward to many more years to come.
