100 Years of Advances

Celebrate with us! EGK will turn 100 in 2019 and is now looking back at the roots of the company’s famed EGK health advances.

A lot happens over the course of 100 years of corporate history. From the company’s formal founding act in Laufen to the invention of the first typewriter to the launch of the digital age, a look at EGK’s old business records provides a fascinating view of these exciting decades, which were shaped in part by the development of Swiss social insurance. Allow yourself to be carried away on an exciting, ever-changing and at times amusing journey through time.

We need to celebrate when the occasion calls for it. That’s why we have put together an anniversary programme that will enable all of Switzerland to take a look at the health world of EGK. At our health festivities in Zurich, Bern and Lucerne, we will be pitching our tents in the main squares and offering a diverse array of activities related to health, complementary medicine and the secret behind a lifestyle full of gusto. The sports highlight will be an invitation to the World Orienteering Championships in Laufen: This is a festival with international flair that you should not miss!
