The increase in world population, climate change, water consumption, ageing infrastructures and contaminated surface and ground water have meant that, in many parts of the world, the supply of clean, safe drinking water is either not guaranteed or at risk. Which is why the importance of innovative water treatment solutions is steadily growing in many application areas. The aim of the Cillit Group is to work in close partnership with its customers to supply cost-effective, eco-friendly water treatment solutions, first-class product quality and outstanding customer service in a wide range of applications, and to provide the best possible quality of water for all sectors and uses.
The history of the Cillit brand dates back to the founding of the company by Ernst und Cilly Vogelmann in 1925. In 1950 Ernst Vogelmann took over his parents’ company under the new name of ‘Cillichemie Ernst Vogelmann’. Over the next 30 years he built it into a successful, global water technology company, setting up Cillit offices in Germany (1948), Italy (1966), France (1967) and Spain (1972).
In 1982 – with a turnover of roughly 85m DM and 470 employees in Germany and abroad – Ernst Vogelmann sold the group of companies to Benckiser, and the Cillit brand went on to become a global consumer brand with its range of household cleaners, ‘Cillit Bang’.
Following a management buyout of the water technology division of the Reckitt-Benckiser Group in 1990, Cillit’s water technology products were absorbed into the newly-founded BWT Best Water Technology Group. The new group then set itself the task of establishing Cillit alongside BWT as a leading water brand and as expert in all areas of water treatment. In the past few years, the company has worked hard to create a dynamic global Cillit distribution and partnership network:
- 2001: Founding of Cillit Hungaria Kft.
- 2004: Creation of Cillit in Canada
- 2005: Creation of Cillit in China via distributors
- 2006: Founding of Cillit CEE Water Technology GmbH, Austria
- 2008: Start of distribution of Cillit as an exclusive brand of the GC Group in Germany
- 2009: Founding of S.C. Cillit Romania Water Technology S.R.L.
