Switzerland is one of the PORR Group’s home markets. In recent years, PORR SUISSE AG was able to continuously strengthen its market position.
Entering the Swiss market dates back to the early 1970s. PORR acquired an interest in the construction company Walker & Söhne AG in Altdorf, which was mainly active in the civil engineering field. Soon the company was renamed “Walker-Porr AG”. Subsequently PORR took over all the shares.
Since 2000, the organisation trades under PORR SUISSE AG. In 2001 a branch office was opened in Zurich, accommodating today’s head office for services as a general contractor for building construction. The first general contractor order soon followed. These general and total contracting services have been expanded and intensified since 2014.
The PORR SUISSE AG headquarters in Altdorf are used as the head office for civil engineering, infrastructure and tunnelling. In these areas several notable projects for the NRLA, short for New Railway Link through the Alps, as well as projects in the area of tunnelling stand out.
Today, PORR SUISSE AG is well-established in the Swiss market and continuously expanding its portfolio, especially in the area of general and total contracting services for building construction. Infrastructure and tunnelling projects play an important role as well. With more than 270 qualified employees, long-term experience, and forward-looking know-how, PORR has established itself as a reliable partner for realizing challenging projects in the Swiss market as well.
