It also provides training, repairs, testing and consultancy.

High-profile projects Hilti is involved in include providing support and machinery for Japan’s bullet train system and for the Delhi metro system being built in India.

Hilti (Great Britain) introduced a Benefits Box scheme in 2016, which provides for access and information about employee benefits such as private medical care, eye tests and shopping discounts.

People feel proud to work for this organisation and believe that they can make a valuable contribution to its success (both scoring 87%).
