Our Silver Partner’s history begins in 1895, where Jakob Zehnder sets up his own workshop in his home town of Gränichen. There, he carried out all kinds of repairs and sold from bicycles, typewriters to washing and sewing machines. In 1923, Jakob’s sons took over the workshop, while turning their focus fully to the motorcycle business. Started off with great success, difficult financial situation had forced the Zehnder brothers to resign from the management. In search for new business opportunities, the Zehnder brother started to produce radiators for which the company has been known and valued since. Now, for more than 80 years, Zehnder is one of the leading market suppliers of heating and cooling systems. The enterprise is represented worldwide with more than 3000 employees. Zehnder’s products and systems are marketed under two international brands and several national brand, such as Runtal or Greenwood.
