Our Strategy

Making Construction Better

Construction is one of the largest industries globally. It plays a central role in the world economy; it creates jobs for millions of people, provides housing to almost everyone living on our planet, and builds commercial, industrial and civil infrastructures that enable economic growth. The industry, however, faces significant challenges. It has not delivered productivity over the past decades. Skilled labor is in short supply and health and safety issues are abundant on jobsites. Carbon emissions are high and continue to rise.

In the face of these challenges, construction is transforming. Enabled by digitalization, construction is industrializing. Workflows are becoming more efficient and effective and will increasingly deliver productivity. Sustainability is becoming an important ingredient for our customers’ success and safety is moving up the agenda. Construction is becoming more productive, safer and more sustainable. In short, construction is becoming better.

This is a big transformation, and it is not an easy one. Historically, construction has been a traditional industry; workflows and processes have not fundamentally changed for generations. Our customers are thus looking for a partner in this transformation.

Hilti is ideally positioned to be this partner. With our focus on innovation, we help our customers to do things better. That is why we have defined Making Construction Better as our purpose. Better means improved productivity, safety and sustainability. We want to be our customers’ best partner for productivity, safety and sustainability and deliver better applications, better projects, better processes, and better experiences.

At Hilti, our objective is value creation through leadership, built on differentiation and direct customer relationships. Value creation goes beyond economic value. We create value not only for our shareholder, but also for our customers, our suppliers and partners, our team members, and our society.

Our passionate and inclusive global team is at the core of our success. Together with the Hilti Foundation we build a better future.
