Autogen Endress AG


AUTOGEN ENDRESS AG was founded in 1907 by Georg Endress in Schaffhausen. He worked with “accessories for autogenous metal processing”. In 1916, a merchant called Johannes Müller bought the company, converted it into a corporation and opened the business in Horgen. Just two years later, the first own brands have been developed. First, the model of autogenous tools has been set up.

Other products followed in rapid succession. Gas generators that were known as “Acetylenentwickler” were very helpful for welding. During the Second World War, they contributed for the propulsion of motor vehicles.

Over the years, more products that need flammable gas came along. These include propane burner and Asphalt heaters.

AUTOGEN ENDRESS AG is the manufacturer of special burners! We manufacture preheaters for the industry, special burner for customers, granite burner, and much more.

For decades, we have been a reliable partner for our customers in the field of electric-welded (MIG / MAG, TIG, MMA, plasma welding, etc.). Also, plasma cutting takes a high priority in our daily business. Several international producers of electro fusion and plasma devices have entrusted the company with the distribution of their products in Switzerland.

For the products that are traded, the same high standards as the ones for self-manufacturers are used. This is probably the basis for our success; the very basis, however, can be found in the majority of long-term employees.
