Our business was founded by my grandfather in 1937 and my father took it over in 1982 and he continued to expand it with success. It is now in its third generation and I am proud to continue this family business with the energetic support of my parents, my sister and my brother-in-law. Above all the core to our success is dependent upon our entire loyal, dedicated and motivated staff.
As we are an independent company, we are focused on our customer’s needs and therefore can react quickly to cater to their requirements and take their request seriously. I am convinced that we, as a modern and visionary Swiss family business, are able to continue asserting ourselves in the world market.

Where it all Started
The company HGZ
(wood gas generators Zurich) was founded in the year 1937, in its early years we were not producing coffee machines. However, just a few years later, the founder Heinrich Gertsch developed the first filter machines under the name „Bravilor”. Later, in the sixties, HGZ also started producing multiple-grouped piston and filter coffee machines for gastronomy under the name „Royal“. Subsequently the product range expanded further with the acquisition of the Swiss fully automatic producer „Rex” in 1969.
A few years later the brand „Rex-Royal” was born and is kept till today. After Peter and Verena Sager-Gertsch took over the business, the company grew considerably and the production location in Zurich-Affoltern was insufficient to accommodate the growth and therefore the facility had to be relocated. In 1987, the newly established registered business opened at Daellikon in Zurich and is still today the production location of our professional fully automatic coffee machines.
Since the founding
of the company, our people have been the core of our family business. Motivated, loyal and reliable employees working together in harmony and professionally makes up our competent team that drives our success in the development, fabrication and marketing of our products. Thanks to our lean organization and the high proprietary value creation, we are able to react promptly and efficiently to the most diverse requirements and can realize excellent solutions for our customers.
