New ideas open new doors. That has been our credo for over 155 years. In the middle of the idyllic Toggenburg, Johann Georg Berlinger laid the foundation of our company history in 1865 – with a weaving mill.
Today, the name Berlinger stands for innovative technology and products and is an international benchmark for standardized doping control systems.
The sixth generation of the Berlinger family is proud to carry on the values and traditions of their family company, which focus on openness, quality and fairness. Each and every day we invest in our values, people and processes: to be more precise, we invest 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.
