Simon Zaugg purchases the lower blacksmith's shop (untere Schmiede) in Eggiwil and offers his services as a farrier and wagon maker.
The first hydraulic power is used for forging hammers, wagon making and frame sawing machines. The blacksmith's shop is now called hammer mill in documents. In addition, the first crop farming machines are built (up to the year 2000).
The well-known ZAUGG mountain plough was patented (built until 1985); later on, his six sons take over the company.
The brothers Walter and Werner Zaugg establish Gebrüder Zaugg AG. (if there is space you can add) Zaugg mainly manufactures municipal technology: Snow blowers and snow ploughs, monobloc snow blowers, sweeping brushes and road edge trimmers. The company manufactured the mountain plough, the tractor angle plough, tractor harrows, cultivators and dump truck buckets for agriculture.
A group of local entrepreneurs and own employees establish ZAUGG AG EGGIWIL. Employees now own around 30% of the shares.
