HAMILTON Bonaduz Company Profile

The company

To be "The Measure of Excellence" was chemical engineer Clark Hamilton from Nebraska USA’s overriding goal, when he developed the first Microliter® syringe in 1947. Not satisfied with this, in order to be able to manufacture and market the Microliter® syringes under his own name, Clark Hamilton went onto found HAMILTON Inc. in Whittier, California, in 1955. Later, in response to the ever-increasing demands for syringes in Europe, Africa, and Asia, he founded a subsidiary in Chur, Switzerland in 1962. Five years further on, this moved to the neighboring town of Bonaduz, where it today employs approximately 650 personnel and has its own sales and marketing companies in Germany, Great Britain, and France. In addition, a world-wide network of over 300 HAMILTON dealers ensures optimal customer liaison and support. Humility aside, it would be true to say that since the original foundation of HAMILTON Inc. in 1955, the name HAMILTON has developed into an international byword for quality and reliability around the globe.
