Since the very beginning of our organisation it has been our mission to improve tunnelling and mining technologies together with our industry partners.

That is why we selected a dedicated test environment nearby an aggregate quarry and at a site that provides various rock formations. Additionally, we are in a low populated area but close enough to international junctions.

Dedicated and applied research projects by international consortia or individual partners continue to be a core activity in our Hagerbach Test Gallery.

We are pleased to carry out your project
