FOREWORD 2008 marks the 175th anniversary of SVITZER. In keeping with tradition, and not least in recognition of the considerable expansion SVITZER has undergone since the latest book on SVITZER was published in 1983, we thought this an appropriate occasion to update the written history of the Company. Several Companies have become part of SVITZER in the past few years and many new Colleagues have joined. By examining the strategic rationale of the major milestones of the Company, we hope to have created a better shared understanding of what has shaped SVITZER and made it possible to develop and grow. As the book shows this has been no easy task. SVITZER has had to adapt humbly to numerous changes and challenges over the years. In many ways the only constant during those fi rst 175 years seems to have been change. It has not been possible to mention all the fi ne Companies and individuals, each with their own fascinating history and achievements, who have been integral to making SVITZER the global Company it is today. This foreword is therefore fi rst and foremost a tribute to the thousands of people who have contributed over the years to the many businesses that make up the SVITZER Group. Their entrepreneurship, expertise, experience, networks, dedication and determination have made all the difference.
