We develop and manufacture products for cleaning and disinfecting as well as specialty chemical products for treating metal surfaces at our headquarters in Usingen/Taunus, Germany. This year, we celebrate our 60th anniversary as a business. In 1957, when Otto Albishausen & Co. KG was established, the main focus initially centred on developing and producing detergents specifically suited to the railway system. In doing so, we were able to build up a reputation as a market dominating company over several decades. As the years went by, our range of cleaning and disinfectant agents was extended to cover the municipal water supply, pipeline construction, swimming pools, buildings and galvanic industrial plants.
