Located in the central Alps, our plant in Serneus in the Swiss canton of Graubünden has developed to become a specialist supplier of valves for hydroelectric power stations over the decades. Today customers worldwide make use of our know-how in order to install reliable safety valves in hydroelectric power stations. ADAMS SCHWEIZ AG has produced valves for hydroelectric power stations at its 8,000-square-metre premises since 1972. Due to its topography and the high average precipitation, Switzerland has a long tradition in the use of hydroelectric power.
Hydropower makes an indispensable contribution to safe, environment friendly generation of electric
power. The fate of both today‘s world and of the future depends on having a secure energy supply from
hydropower plants that are dependable and operational at all times. Analogous to other new sources
like wind and solar power, pumped-storage plants are growing in significance as a reliable, swift source
of energy with a large storage potential.
As a family-owned SME company, we have grown over the past decades to become a competence centre
for developing and producing shut-off equipment for hydropower plants. Our internationally renowned
company is a member of the globally active ADAMS Group, with a total of more than 400 employees and
production sites in Switzerland, Germany and the USA.
Even after more than three decades of our company’s history, we continue to focus on quality, attention to detail, implementing new materials and procedures, and developing new products. Additional plants and investments in production equipment enable us not only to grow in quality, but also in quantity, as well as to continue expanding our range of products and services in order to meet the needs of today‘s world.
