DR.SCHNELL GmbH & Co. KGaA started out as the Munich soap factory. In 1963, Dr Wolfgang Schnell took over the craftsman’s establishment from his father and subsequently paved the way for the modern pan-European company for professional cleaning, hygiene, disinfection as well as skin protection and care products. Its aspiration: environmentally and medically compatible production and innovative, highly effective products which are compatible with the environment, health and materials. The next generation: Dr Thomas Schnell joined the management in 2006 and has been responsible for operational activities of the medium-sized family company since 2013. As of October 2017, Dr Wolfgang Schnell took up his new post as Chairman of the Supervisory Board. DR.SCHNELL employs over 300 employees, has highly modern production plants, research and development laboratories as well as an international sales organisation. Production takes place exclusively in Germany at the Munich site. At the German Sustainability Prize in 2013, DR.SCHNELL which has been EMAS and ISO 140001-certified since 1998, was voted as one of the three most sustainable brands in Germany. This was followed by the award for the Top 100 Great Place to Work in 2014 and 2017. Out of the cross-industry competition, customers voted for DR.SCHNELL as “TOP SERVICE DEUTSCHLAND 2017” as Germany’s best service and customer-oriented provider.
