Who we are
Leadership in design, quality and reliability have placed HESS in the front line of pioneering bus building. Because environmentally friendly HESS buses contribute significantly to enhancing the quality of life in cities and urban areas, many public transport companies in Switzerland, Europe and around the world have come to invest their long term trust in HESS. Flexible thinking and advanced manufacturing technology embodied in our CO-BOLT® modular system will keep us there, continuously opening up new dimensions in design and performance concepts. HESS solutions always set out to precisely match operational requirements. Our latest is the lighTram®. Its high capacity and electric drive target urban usage. Its environmental plus is also a real cost saver – braking energy is continuously recuperated, either directly through the overhead lines or by onboard storage.
