Founded in 1999, Swiss Prime Site grew to the largest listed real estate company in Switzerland. The company has a real estate portfolio which amounts to around CHF 12 billion. Swiss Prime Site is continuously expanding its portfolio through acquisitions, developments, conversions, and a strong focus on prime locations.
The purchase of Maag Holding AG (2004) with the Maag Site in Zurich-West, where Prime Tower was constructed, counts among the most paramount acquisitions. The acquisition of the Jelmoli property portfolio (2009) doubled the value of the real estate holdings. Swiss Prime Site then has executed key strategic acquisitions with Wincasa (2012) and Tertianum (2013). Furthermore, significant self-development projects or conversions of former office space have paved the way for generating additional growth and value in the portfolio.
Besides this, sustainability as well as innovation are an integral part of Swiss Prime Site’s corporate strategy and business activities.
They assimilated the Sustainable Development Goals, ESG criteria and others into their agenda. As a result, the sites are planed climate-neutral using new, innovative materials like zirkulit, a circular building material, which’s recipe is based on secondary raw materials. Not only primary resources of sand and gravel in buildings can be massively reduced but also CO2 can be stored in the concrete and thus reduce the emission of carbon dioxide.

Hans Bertschi first started his business back in 1956. He then purchased his first truck, a Berna model, and transported goods such as steel from Germany to Switzerland. In 1964 he finally convinced the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) of the advantages to load into trains instead of trucks. This resulted in the first transport from Basel to Lugano and marks the birth of transalpine intermodal transportation of goods. As the business grew successfully, Hans Bertschi got support from his brother Rolf and together they founded Bertschi AG. Since 1964, Bertschi AG has remained a family business to this day.
Some years later, in 2011, Bertschi was the first company to transport ISOtanks on a pure rail route between Europe and China. ISOtanks are containers designed exclusively for the transport and storage of liquids, are manufactured according to ISO standards, and therefore guarantee a very high level of safety.
Today, Bertschi is the European market leader in intermodal chemical transportation on rail, road, and water. Through the systematic shift of transport, Bertschi contributes to environmental protection and reduction of the carbon footprint of the industry. The company also established a leading position in global ISOtank transportation and value-added logistics services and leads in commitment to safety, quality, service, and environmental protection thus provides amazing opportunities for both – customers as well as employees.
As a global logistics service provider, Bertschi is constantly evolving. The corporate philosophy established by its founders, Hans and Rolf Bertschi, remains deeply embedded in the company’s culture and its roots are still very much in evidence. Bertschi has remained a family-owned company with its headquarters in Dürrenäsch, Switzerland.
