Wiggensbach, along with Schorndorf, is where it all began for us – where we took our first steps with pioneering manufacturing processes. It is also where we developed production techniques that continue to identify us as a quality manufacturer today. Our facility in the Allgäu region includes several central administrative areas and a state-of-the-art specialized manufacturing plant, as well as our design and development units for actuators, insert molding technology, and hybrid modules.
About 900 people work in Wiggensbach, and the design and development units alone employ more than 50 engineers and technicians. They and their teams conduct advance development activities and work on customer projects for the entire Swoboda Group.
Wiggensbach is a picturesque municipality surrounded by rolling green hills and forests. Situated in the middle of the Alpine foothills, not far from the city of Kempten in the Allgäu region, Wiggensbach boasts breathtaking views of the Allgäu Alps and the delightful surrounding countryside, as well as awe-inspiring nooks and crannies to explore. The municipality, which has a population of around 5,000, is located between 750 and 1,000 meters above sea level and offers a pleasant and healthy climate all year round. Hikers flock here in the summer to walk along the many trails in the area, while nearby ski resorts attract numerous tourists and locals in the winter. Put simply, Wiggensbach is a wonderful place to live and work.
