Christian Schilling on what he sees as Bucher Hydraulics’ contribution to society
Performing heavy work
with utmost precision
In the 2021 annual report, we’re focusing on the value our divisions create for society. How do we contribute to the world we live in, both today and tomorrow? To answer this question, we’ve handed the floor over to our employees. Read on to find out what Christian Schilling sees as Bucher Hydraulics’ objective.
“Hydraulics make moving heavy loads look effortless. When a crane boom places an entire roof on a building with absolute precision, that’s a pretty impressive sight.”
“With every component we create, we’re making something that moves the world and the people in it – sometimes even giving them goosebumps, because we also equip roller coasters with hydraulic drives.”
“We fit tail lifts for vans that safely transport our online shopping, bringing it home – and bringing people joy.”
At Bucher Hydraulics, we create more than high-quality, durable products for our customers. Our solutions enable machines to perform heavy work and move large masses. Because hydraulics delivers massive, constant power for moving heavy loads precisely and safely, even in harsh environments.
In this way, our solutions, which are used in a wide variety of electrohydraulic systems, make a contribution to society and the world in which we live.
