The Hilti Foundation

THE FASCINATION OF HISTORY – RESEARCHING THE PAST, MAKING NEW DISCOVERIES,
PRESENTING FINDINGS TO THE PUBLIC. THESE ARE THE GOALS SHARED BY FRANCK GODDIO AND THE HILTI FOUNDATION.

The Martin Hilti Family Trust is the sole shareholder of the globally operating Hilti Group. Hilti provides state-of-the-art technological products, systems and services for the construction industry. Close to 20,000 employees (of whom 1,900 in Liechtenstein) in more than 120 countries are passionately committed to exceed customer expectations and to build a better future. Hilti was founded in Liechtenstein in 1941 and the headquarters of both the Hilti Group and the Hilti Foundation are based in Schaan in the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Established in 1996 by the Martin Hilti Family Trust, the Hilti Foundation finances and coordinates all global ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ activities on behalf of the Hilti Group and the Trust. The Hilti Foundation is committed to a select range of innovative and sustainable projects, particularly in the cultural, social and educational domain. Just as the Hilti logo has long been recognized as the hallmark of innovative products and market services, the name Hilti Foundation stands for the promotion of innovative ideas and projects that contribute to build a better future, as put forth in the Hilti mission statement.

The focus of the Hilti Foundation’s current cultural commitment, ongoing for more than ten years, is the support of the underwater archaeological work of Franck Goddio and hTis team off the Egyptian coast. Franck Goddio works closely with renowned experts and scientists and enjoys the scientific support of the Centre for Maritime Archaeology at Oxford University. This current series of exhibitions presents the spectacular finds and the results of Franck Goddio’s painstaking research to a broad public audience.
