Our history

Quality is Stäubli's mission and driving force since 1892

Since 1892 the Stäubli Group has expanded both technologically and geographically. As early as 1909 Stäubli has set up its first manufacturing site in France, followed by further expansions to European countries, the Americas, Japan, China and Korea. Starting off as a technological pioneer and reliable partner in the weaving industry, Stäubli expanded its expertise to connection solutions. At first with quick couplings for pneumatics and hydraulics, later on for electrical power and data. With the acquisition of Unimation - a renowned pioneer in industrial robotics - Stäubli continued its dynamic path into one of the most advanced and innovative industrial sectors. On the basis of this comprehensive technological heritage and expertise we partner with our customers worldwide to provide the most efficient solution for their application.
