The history of Lumesa SA

Lumesa SA was foundet on July 7, 1980. This was made possible by the restructuring of Losinger AG. The beginning was difficult, with 12 employees and increasingly rare orders from the former parent company. Thanks to F+L, Lumesa has specialized in pile driving and has become a sales representative of Heusser AG for Ticino (pile driving and pumping) and SIG (underground machines).


In 1986, Lumesa SA built the first series of 6 light drill mast units, which were conceived the previous year for building anchored avalanche shelters. The SIG MOUNTY brand was born. In the following years, these pneumatic drill masts were also used for dams, weirs, tunnels, bridges and historic buildings.


In 1992, the SIG MOUNTY 92H hydraulic drill mast was introduced on the market. In the same year, the company took part for the first time at the Bauma trade fair in Munich, wich was the starting point for sales in neighboring Europe. 30 machines were delivered for reconstruction of the city of Prague.


In 2001, Lumesa SA obtained an ISO certification and an EU certification from the Munich Civil Engineering Association.


In 2018, Lumesa AG was incorporated by Küchler Technik AG and there has been a change in the management. For Lumesa AG this integration is the key to ensure the continuity of the company and to develop and expand its customer base.


Lumesa AG is a reliable partner for over 40 years, with development, assembly and service departments in Lumino (Switzerland). Production has been outsourced to Swiss suppliers, which guarantees high quality and short delivery times.  Drilling machines from Lumesa SIG MOUNTY work on all continents to the full satisfaction of our customers and for the benefit of the population in developing countries.
