Industrial history

In recent years, greater emphasis has been placed on collecting objects associated with Zug’s industrial past. In the 19th and 20th centuries important Swiss companies were established in the City and Canton of Zug, some of which developed into enterprises of international importance, whose legacies live on to this day. These industrial witnesses to Zug's cultural heritage must be protected in their role as unique carriers of cantonal identity. Industrial goods are not generally viewed as collectable and are therefore often discarded when company premises are cleared out. In Canton Zug the Lorze Industrial Trail carried out pioneering work by assembling an extensive collection of industrial objects. It includes products made by well-known Zug companies such as Landis & Gyr, the Zug Metal Works, the watch manufacturer Inducta, the wooden crate factory, or Erika, a company that manufactured prams. This collection is today in the care of the Zug Castle Museum.
