The history of the family business egli jona ag

In 1946, Walter Egli founded Egli Gartenbau AG Stäfa. Walter and Heidi Egli had five sons, all of whom learned the gardening profession. The sons Walter (jun.) and Ueli took over the management of the company, as at that time the three younger brothers were still in training.

In 1977, Ueli Egli founded the Egli Gartenbau AG Wagen branch on the upper shores of Lake Zurich. 15 years later, the branch became an independent limited company. Since 1992 the companies had the same corporate identity, but were independent companies. After further healthy years of growth, the office building in Wagen near Jona was built in 1996. A generous extension in 1998 expanded the infrastructure of Egli Gartenbau AG Wagen. Furthermore, the company moved into a warehouse for the personnel and the vehicle and machine park in the industrial area in Jona.

On 01.01.2006 Egli Gartenbau AG Wagen gets a new face and a new name. Egli jona ag enters the future with a fresh and innovative appearance. In June, the company moves into the newly built magazine with integrated offices in the industrial area of Jona.

Ueli Egli and Sandra Egli have three children, all of whom are also learning the "green profession". With Christian Egli and Daniel Egli, the third generation of the gardening family took the reins at egli jona ag on October 10, 2010. Their father, Ueli Egli, continues to provide advice and support as Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Since 2021, we have also been ISO-certified in the areas of quality management and environmental management (ISO 9001, ISO 14001).

The team egli jona

We are pleased with the demand for quality gardens and terraces, which we can only implement with the help of our employees. The team has grown to over 100 people. At the same time, we are constantly evolving as a team and always trying to challenge our status quo by involving our employees. 

Environmental aspects

As a company, we also have a responsibility towards our environment. Especially in a profession so closely connected with nature, our environmental aspects are particularly important to us. Starting with waste separation, the economical use of fuel, efficient resource planning as well as the preferred use of battery-powered equipment, we would like to perform our work in a way that is kind to the environment.
