PRESS RELEASE

H. MOSER & CIE. SHOWS ITS SUPPORT FOR SWISS ENTREPRENEURS

Neuhausen am Rheinfall, October 17th 2014

For the third year running, H. Moser & Cie. is very proud to lend its support to the prestigious Swiss "Entrepreneur Of The YearTM 2014" competition organised by Ernst & Young. In keeping with the traditions of its founder, Heinrich Moser, H. Moser & Cie. stands testament to the same entrepreneurial spirit, promoting a great capacity for innovation. The Neuhausen-based manufacture supports and encourages the most promising of Swiss companies recognised by this award. This year, 33 entrepreneurs qualified to take part in the competition. A jury of 11 has just named the 10 finalists for the 2014 award. The winners will be revealed on October 24th, during a gala evening event which will take place in St. Gallen.

For decades, Ernst & Young has been committed to guiding and supporting entrepreneurs in an increasingly competitive environment. Because it knows that innovation, ingenuity and quality are key characteristics for ensuring success, Ernst & Young gives entrepreneurs the benefit of its experience and professionalism, day after day.

 

H. Moser & Cie. has shared these values since it was founded in 1828. The company's founder, Heinrich Moser, was a shining example of entrepreneurial spirit, which never faltered throughout his career. A talented watchmaker, visionary industrialist and true pioneer, Heinrich was an indefatigable entrepreneur. At the age of 22, he left his home town of Schaffhausen for Saint Petersburg, where he founded H. Moser & Cie. in 1828 and where he met with success shortly after arriving. Twenty years later, a renowned and respected watchmaker and entrepreneur, he returned to Schaffhausen, which was transformed into a cutting-edge industrial town under his influence, and thanks to his innovative projects. Heinrich Moser was the driving force behind a hydro-mechanical power station and the largest dam in Switzerland being built on the Rhine. The development of the region's railway lines and a regional wagon-building industry, was also initiated and developed by him.

 

Today, H. Moser & Cie. embodies the same entrepreneurial spirit shown by its founder. A prestigious manufacture, it designs, develops and produces its own calibres Together with its sister company Precision Engineering AG, they possess the in-house knowledge and expertise needed to produce cutting-edge watch components, such as the regulating organs, including the balance wheels and hairsprings. It was therefore a perfectly logical step for H. Moser & Cie. to lend its support to Swiss entrepreneurs alongside Ernst & Young.
