More than 60 years ago, young Walter Rüegg, founder of the Swiss indoor and outdoor fireplace manufacturer Rüegg Cheminée Schweiz AG, was cycling through the dusty streets of the small village of Zumikon. His mission was to enchant the living rooms of his clients with fire. However, this alone was not enough for the busy craftsman and in 1959 he invented the first wood fireplace whose combustion chamber could be closed with a glass door. At first he earned more scorn and derision than enthusiasm for his idea – which he immediately patented. However, Walter Rüegg refused to be discouraged and continued to experiment and eventually developed the first fireplace with a sliding fire door.

His invention caused a sensation worldwide, setting the basic standards for efficient, low-emission heating. The patents have long since expired and the Rüegg has undoubtedly become one of the most imitated prototypes.
The patents have long since expired and the Rüegg has undoubtedly become one of the most imitated prototypes. Matthias Rüegg and his team are now at least a little proud of this fact. Rüegg has made it its mission to consistently maintain this virtue. “If people are copying you, then you can’t be that bad!” says the current chairman of the board of the family business based in Hinwil, Switzerland.
Rüegg Cheminée Schweiz AG employs 34 people and is headed by Matthias Rüegg, the second generation to run the family company since 2005. In its products sold worldwide, Rüegg attaches great importance to quality and the use of top-class materials. The Rüegg product range is marketed in the medium to high price segment. Here, Rüegg is based on the strong Rüegg Studio franchise group. In the approximately 170 Rüegg Studios located around the world, prospective fireplace owners can receive advice on the individual object of their dreams.
