The Fuchs Group, which operates globally in the lubricants sector, has been present in the Swiss market for more than 40 years. After Fuchs sold its 50% share in a local joint venture in August 2018, the Swiss market is now being served directly by local trading partners. Fuchs has been able to win three renowned and experienced trading partners for future sales in Switzerland: The lubricant specialist Aseol Suisse AG, the Laveba cooperative and the chemical-technical heat transfer specialist S. Affolter. With this move, Fuchs ensures complete market coverage across all customer groups in Switzerland.
Aseol Suisse AG in Steffisburg will distribute industrial lubricants and lubricants for special applications throughout Switzerland as a trading partner for Fuchs. In addition, Aseol Suisse AG will take over the distribution of automotive Fuchs lubricants in Western, Central and Southern Switzerland.
The Laveba cooperative in St. Gallen will take over the distribution of automotive Fuchs lubricants in Eastern Switzerland.
The more than 25-year partnership with the company S. Affolter in Schmitten for the distribution of Fuchs refrigeration oils will continue.
The Fuchs Group develops, produces and markets high-grade lubricants and related specialties for virtually all industries and areas of application. Formed in Mannheim, Germany, in 1931, the Group employs around 5,500 people worldwide at 58 operating companies. Fuchs is the world’s largest independent lubricant manufacturer. Its most important markets in terms of sales revenues are Western Europe, Asia and North America.
