History

1959 Foundation of Neoperl AG in Reinach-Basel (Switzerland)

1961 Foundation of Neoperl GmbH in Müllheim (Germany)

In 1959, the Neoperl Group is incorporated as a joint Swiss / German family enterprise. The registered office for marketing is in Reinach-Basel (Switzerland), main production, research & development and logistics in Müllheim (Germany).

The founders of the company recognise the future opportunities for aerators and secure manufacturing and distribution rights. They follow a forward-looking concept that, at the time, was quite unusual. They fully rely on outsourcing to take advantage of the expertise of specialised suppliers and limit themselves to the assembly of the products. In addition, the Neoperl Group focuses on product development, surface coatings and worldwide marketing of its products. To the today, this concept has proven to be extremely successful.

In the coming years, the range of products is continuously expanded and a new commercial building is built which, today, incorporates the manufacture and distribution of the following products: aerators, flow regulators, check valves, diverters, kitchen sprays, connecting and shower hoses, spouts and a wide range of accessories.

International growth

The mid-80s sees the beginning of the international growth of the Group. To make this possible, Neoperl focuses on its core competencies: research and development, assembly and production, logistics and distribution.
