Thanks to ongoing process, production and quality optimisation, the high-quality and durable "Made in Switzerland" products manufactured by EHRO Ehrensberger GmbH are still available and in use worldwide.


EHRO Ehrensberger GmbH continues to be managed by the fourth generation with the arrival of further descendants in 2018.

To expand the product range in the field of mechanical engineering, the products previously manufactured by Kocher, single and multiple wobble riveting machines, were taken over in 2009.

The takeover of the versatile wobble riveting technology opened up a further line of business.


Based on the EHRO E360 scroll saw from the 1970s, the machine was further developed in 2006, retaining the basic principle of the tried-and-tested quick-clamping system for the saw blade tension, making the new E400 edition the only scroll saw on the market to date without a swinging clamping arm.

In 1996, the company was handed over to the third generation, who took care of the company's continued existence.

The first EHRO E300 scroll saw was launched in the early 1970s.
Shortly afterwards, the range of machines were expanded with a larger scroll saw EHRO E360 and E580.

With the official brand registration of KAKADU and IDEAL in 1971, the wood and metal fretsaws marketed under the same name MAXIMUM were divided into the respective divisions.
From this point onwards, the metal fretsaws were marketed under the KAKADU & IDEAL brands.

Fretsaws for wood continued to be sold under the name MAXIMUM.

In 1955, the brothers Paul and Hugo Ehrensberger took over the company. The first fine band saw was delivered in the same year.

The constantly expanding product range also included the specially manufactured EHRO fine-cutting band saw blades, which were specially developed for the fine band saws.

A few years later, in 1946, the new factory buildings were built in Orpund.

Robert Ehrensberger

Robert Ehrensberger founded his own company in 1930. In the early years, the first fretsaw blades for wood and metal were produced.

Under the name "MAXIMUM", the fretsaw blades soon became a household name for discerning jewellery makers.
