Daniel Hilfiker heads the third generation of engineers leading the family-owned Pneumofore since its beginnings nearly a century ago. Under his leadership, the company has evolved into a global provider of compressed air and vacuum solutions with over 50 service centers worldwide and one of the highest standards of sustainability in the industry.

After joining Pneumofore in 1995, Daniel first lead the creation of the T and UR Series, air compressors designed for high performance in extreme environments. During this time, Pneumofore also matured its expertise in industrial vacuum and shifted into new application markets. While implementing 4 company divisions in 2000, Daniel formed several strategic partnerships that multiplied the company’s capacity. He became board member of the Pneurop counsel to determine standards for the pneumatic and vacuum industries and was the President of the Italian Compo association for seven years (1997 - 2004). Succeeding his father Robert Hilfiker as CEO and President in 2006, Daniel has continued the line of Swiss-born mechanical engineers who have made Pneumofore stand out as a successful and innovative force in industrial air technology since 1923.

Daniel graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in 1992. He is an avid traveller, motorcyclist, collector, and patron of the arts.
