Big Kaiser, the company founded by Heinz Kaiser in Rümlang, Switzerland, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year.

In 1948, the 25-year-old Heinz Kaiser decided to give up his permanent job and start his own business near Zurich, Switzerland. His vision was to advance the development of high-quality tools needed to keep pace with the increasing productivity of machine tool technology at that time.

Mr. Kaiser had clear goals in mind: modern tools, manufactured in his own workshop, meeting high requirements. That meant designing tools which were strong, well balanced and capable of boring precise holes with high accuracy and surface quality. The result was a complete range of CKB (KAB) tool and clamping systems for boring, milling, drilling and external turning that are still widely used in industries around the world today.

It has been 70 years since Mr. Kaiser started his success story with strong will, much faith and a little bit of luck. Many things have changed in the world of manufacturing and technology, but the quality standards of Big Kaiser Precision Tooling are unchanged, the company says.
