New ideas open new doors. That has been our belief for 155 years. It was in the middle of the idyllic Toggenburg countryside that Johann Georg Berlinger in 1865 laid the foundation stone of our company history – in the form of a weaving shop.
Today the name Berlinger stands for innovative technology and retail products and for internationally standardized doping control systems.
The sixth generation of the Berlinger family, is proud to carry on the values and traditions of their family business, the most important of which are openness, quality and fairness. Each and every day we invest in our values, people and sustainable processes: more specifically, we are investing in our future. "This is what our forefathers did and so this is what we continue to do. 'Tradition meets innovation' sums up the strengths that have stayed with us for generations. We foresee change, are receptive to it and respond creatively to the process of change itself."
