When Otto Zschimmer and Max Schwarz founded a chemicals wholesaler in 1894, and began producing their own chemicals in 1909, the world was a very different place. Who could foresee the key world events of the 20th century? The story of Zschimmer & Schwarz is therefore also a very German story, a story of constant change.

Originally founded in Chemnitz, the company headquarters were relocated to Lahnstein after Germany’s division. But what was separated on one side grew together on the other. As Europe started to grow together, the company began expanding into other countries, starting with the foundation of Zschimmer & Schwarz France in 1960. And finally, what belonged together once again came together.
