Rahn-Group celebrates 75 years in business

13 February 2015

Precisely 75 years ago, in 1940 and in the middle of the chaos unleashed by the Second World War, Hans Rahn founded Rahn AG in Zurich as a one-man business. The tradition-steeped Swiss corporate group is still based in Zurich today.

Rahn AG and its six subsidiaries now have a total workforce of 114 and achieve annual sales of CHF120M. As a technology oriented company, the Group provides customers in around 50 countries globally with natural and synthetic raw materials and services, for industries including paints and coatings, cosmetics and foodstuffs. Designated R&D departments facilitate on-going product development and application support for a diverse range of customers. As a result, the company is driven by innovation and cutting-edge technology.

The anniversary celebrations planned for 2015 cover a range of internal and public events. In keeping with the focus of the Rahn Cultural Fund, a concert will be held in Zurich on February 25, featuring international top cellist Sol Gabetta and with a gala dinner afterwards for invited guests.
