1952 Foundation of the enterprise Mörgenthaler Cars by Josef Mörgenthaler Senior. In the one-man company in Bühlstraße 15 in Kicklingen all types of repair was carried out, from bicycles up to agricultural machinery. When a tracklaying and wheel-type loader company was added, the space was quickly undersized.
1968 For the ambitious enterprise a new garage with four lifting platforms and a sufficient outside area were built in Bühlstraße 16. Up to this time Josef Mörgenthaler Senior regularly employed a journeyman and a trainee.
1970 Josef Mörgenthaler Junior got his vehicle master’s diploma and joined the fatherly enterprise in the same year.
1980 Only ten years later when his father wanted to retire, Josef Mörgenthaler Junior took over the company and continued the business always with big success. Beside trainee and journeyman the wife, Maria Aloisia Mörgenthaler, stepped in the administrative-organizational area strengthening the enterprise.
