Our roots go back to the 19th century, when the extremely innovative Dr. phil. Carl Schleußner developed, among other things, the first industrially producible X-ray plates.

A lot has changed since then, but we always stick to our values: Folex has stood for quality, reliability and pioneering innovations for many years throughout the world.

Made in Switzerland, made in Germany: Folex manufactures its products exclusively at locations that are known worldwide for quality work and reliability. We are considered a quality leader in many areas.

Our high-quality products are based on effective quality management systems – and on our employees’ fine sense of quality. They truly embrace the Folex DNA every day.

The urge to innovate has been a part of Folex since the very beginning. Our successful company history began in the 19th century with several groundbreaking inventions by the founder Dr. phil. Carl Schleußner. Later generations in the family business also proved to be extremely innovative. And that continues today.

Our innovation teams of chemists, material scientists and application engineers are always close to the market through tight cooperation with Marketing & Sales and the intensive exchange with OEMs and customers. The result is innovations that solve customer problems and increase productivity and sales.

From the revolutionary special X-ray plates to the first film rolls and cameras in Germany, through to pioneering innovations in the films and foils sector:

The success and growth of our company have always been rooted in our innovative entrepreneurial spirit and the clear values we live by.
