Schwab writes history

Schwab is a traditional brand of high quality concealed systems and solutions based on decades of experience.


1911
Schwab was built in Pfullingen.The product programe consisted of doors and frames produced only from the waste wood of toilet seats.

Since 1945
The second world war influenced the supply of wood, so Charles Schwab made a strategic move through change in the production from wood to plastics. As a result of this change, the company renamed from Schwab to "Schwab plastic plumbing".

50s
Schwab extended its product range with visible cisterns made ​​of polystyrene.

60s
Schwab extended product range to concealed cisterns. This was followed by a further development to the mechanically operated box, which is compared to the semi-mechanical cisterns substantially more reliable. As an innovator in this field, Schwab made a patent protection of all internal parts of the cisterns.

80's
Schwab started with the production of dry installation elements. This has  become the most important pillar in the Schwab portfolio.
