Plastics to perfektion RIWISA AG was founded on 11th March 1946 by Martin Richner, Adolf Wirth and Joseph Sax as one of the first plastics’ processing firms in Switzerland. Initially the firm made a name for itself in the processing of buttons and toilet seats made from duroplastics and later in the manufacture of thermoplastics. From 1955 RIWISA AG produced polyaethylene, polyamide and multi-layer films as well as disposable packaging from 1957. In 1998 the production of medicinal items started under clean-room conditions.
