«It's a great plus for Hamilton's recruiting that our highly qualified and motivated staff can work where others enjoy their holidays. Further locational advantages are the moderate tax rates and land prices as well as the accessibility of the airport at Zurich. Thanks to the high-quality further education opportunities in local universities and research institutes, which are renowned for basic research, the Grisons is ideally suited for innovation-oriented technical companies.»
The US American company Hamilton is the global leader for sensor and medical technology and laboratory automation. The company has carried out research work and production in Bonaduz since 1966. Around one third of the 850-strong labor force are university graduates. In 2009, Hamilton Bonaduz started operations in a new production building covering an area of 16,000 m2. During its expansion phase, Hamilton Bonaduz recruited around 150 employees a year for three years in the field of medical technology. Hamilton focuses on basic research and the results are worth seeing – numerous patent registrations and organic growth speak for themselves.
