In 1920 SAIA AG was founded in Berne, Switzerland. 15 years later, the establishment of Burgess Products Ltd. took place. The two companies were being restructured in 1989 to become Saia-Burgess headquartered in Murten. Since 1998, shares of Saia-Burgess Electronics Holding are quoted on the Swiss stock Exchange.
Saia-Burgess is organised into three business areas: the Automotive Division, the Industry Division and the Controls Division. Branded SAIA, Burgess, Ledex & Dormeyer and BÄR, these products are manufactured at eleven production locations.
