The Schurter company was founded in 1933 by Heinrich Schurter as a limited partnership and was converted into a stock corporation in 1949. In 1990 Schurter Holding AG, which still exists today, was founded in Lucerne (Switzerland). Today, Schurter employs around 2000 people in 17 countries worldwide and is managed by third-generation family members: Hans-Rudolf Schurter is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Schurter Holding AG and his brother, the US-based Bruno H. Schurter, is Vice Chairman. Hans-Rudolf Schurter handed over the operational management of the Schurter Group to Ralph Müller in January 2015. For the first time in the company's more than 80 year history, the operational management of Schurter was thus transferred to external family hands. In order to secure its position as a leading innovator and producer of electronic components, the Schurter Group has been significantly expanded in recent years through acquisitions.[1]
