vanBaerle's history goes back to 1888 when the company founders opened a soap factory. The company moved to its present headquarters in Münchenstein, south of Basel, as early as 1898. While remaining firmly rooted in north-western Switzerland, the vanBaerle Group has evolved into a dynamic and innovative enterprise. It now operates subsidiaries in Taiwan, Singapore and France, as well as a joint venture in Slovakia. Our products and services are sold in over 50 countries across Europe, America and Asia. An approx. 120-strong workforce is the foundation of our success.
The focus of activities in our two business areas, Hygiene and Silicates, is on innovation and delivering tailor-made solutions for customers. At the same time, high priority is given to human and environmental protection.
The Hygiene business unit develops, manufactures and sells cleaning products for hotels, restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes and the food industry. The Silicates business unit develops, manufactures and sells customized additives and finished products for a wide variety of applications.
