Business Location Schaffhausen

The Schaffhausen region is a leading industrial and business location with the highest quality of life. Located in the heart of Europe and as part of the Greater Zurich Area, Schaffhausen boasts a central location, excellent transport connections and the nearby Zurich International Airport, making it the ideal base for internationally active companies.

The numerous medical technology companies located in and around Schaffhausen underline this impressively. Thanks to a sustainable location strategy over the past 20 years, our economic region has established itself as one of the leading locations for international corporations, and global pharmaceutical and medical technology companies such as Janssen-Cilag (Johnson&Johnson), ConvaTec, Medtronic, Covidien and Pharmacyclics control a wide range of business activities for Schaffhausen's European and global business. In addition to Alcon Grieshaber, other companies from the medical technology sector such as Medipack, Stratec Biomedical, Storz Endoskop, Weibel CDS and IVF Hartmann also produce and develop products at our site.
