KANYA - History

Kanya Ltd was founded 1974 by Gertrud Rüegg.

1975 the PVS connector extruded aluminium section system which was invented by Walter Baer underwent patent registration. That same system is to this day the basis for the extensive Kanya product portfolio which offers almost unlimited options. In 1982 the company moves first to Wald (ZH), and then 1997 to the current location in Rüti (ZH). In 2008 Gertrud Ruegg and Walter Baer, the original founders address the succession planning and sell the company to Bachtel Group.

In 2013 a new production facility is established in China and in 2015 the production facility in Rüti/ZH is being extended by 1‘500 m2.
