Sebastian,

Here a few thoughts:

In Switzerland you can try to scrape http://www.zefix.ch/

Otherwise other company databases that I am aware off are under commercial
license.

Swiss commercial data providers are:
http://www.bisnode.de/product/firmendatenbank/
http://ch.kompass.com/

On a ww scale you buy data from Bloomberg alike.

Besides the known opencorporate, dbpedia etc approach I am not aware of
another open db.
In general this is big business for certain company data providers.

Cheers, Daniel
