The founder of Migros, Gottlieb Duttweiler, laid the foundation in 1928, when delivery boycotts forced Migros to establish its own manufacturing network and add to its production facilities. The Migros Group owns M-Industry and is its main customer. As the largest retailer in Switzerland, Migros employs over 100,000 people, which also makes it the country’s largest private employer. Sales in the Migros Group reached 28 billion Swiss francs in 2016.
M-Industry has evolved over the decades into a high-performing industrial group. In Switzerland its focus is on potential in the catering industry and convenience stores, as well as within the Migros Group.
M-Industry is gradually strengthening its international presence and currently has sales locations and its own subsidiaries in Germany, England, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Canada, USA, Japan and China. Strategic acquisitions abroad additionally consolidate its presence and position on the market.
