History

1994
Founding year of R + R Burger and Partner AG

Company founder
In order to establish the company, a number of employees from the Rail+Road department of the MOTOR COLUMBUS group and two external companies, F. Preisig AG engineers and planners as well as Jauslin + Stebler Ingenieure AG joined forces. Originally, the share capital was divided into three equal parts, one of each in the hands of the employees and each of the above two companies, respectively. In the meantime, the two external companies’ shares have been taken over and today, the company is wholly owned by its employees.

Employment philosophy
During our first 20 years, a total of 30 employees have worked at R+R. Out of the eight employees who worked for us since the very beginning, five are still with us today. We have deliberately remained a small company with a personal touch: between 15 and 20 employees are currently working at our two locations in Baden and Bern. Thanks to our interdisciplinary team, we can meet many different requirements for the handling of complex projects. In the year of the foundation, we were three engineers and two economists, but today, our staff has many professional backgrounds: engineers, economists, planners, mathematicians, environmental engineers, spatial planners, controllers etc.

Locations
The company is based in Baden, where our head office is located since the founding on February 15th, 1994. In 2000, a new branch office was opened in Bern.

Projects
In recent years, more than 200 projects have been handled by R+R, a quarter of them international projects.

Quality management
Since August 20th, 1998, our management system is certified according to the standards SN EN ISO 9001.
