EARTH-CONSCIOUS CREATIVITY is a campaign that is part of our corporate strategy where we take action to preserve what is really important: our planet and its future. Protecting our natural resources is a promise we take seriously. Nature is the source of our creativity. Therefore, protecting the environment has been and will remain one of our strongest commitments. Whether contributing to decarbonisation or foster biodiversity at our new headquarters, we aim to strengthening public trust in our business. We will remain committed to transparency and continuous improvement.
We are a family-owned company in the third generation. Founded in 1926 by Hermann Luzi, our company started with the prime objective of producing unique and innovative fragrances for industries as personal care and detergents. After years of success the company was taken over in 1952 by Eduard Altenburger. Since then, the Altenburger family runs the company to fullest success.
Highly creative, we master the craftsmanship of perfumery to create modern, top-quality fragrances for a demanding clientele serving many categories as fine fragrance, cosmetics, household and industrial products. We offer creative solutions and effective products, along exclusive turnkey manufacture and customer support, taking prime care of our long-standing partnerships.
Corporate responsibility is at our core and the newly inaugurated headquarters perfectly reflect this approach of paramount importance to us.
Founding by namesake
Hermann Luzi founds a business for commercial trade in perfume compounds, essential oils and colours that is to become the cornerstone for the company’s long-standing success story.
Altenburger family acquires
Eduard Altenburger takes over the entire share capital of LUZI AG. Already during the Second World War, the perfumer from Zurich supports the fragrance business by replacing the suspended deliveries from German suppliers with his own fragrance blends. This was the start of a success story. In 1969, the company moves to a new headquarters and production facility in Dietlikon, near Zurich Airport.
Opening of LUZI Malaysia
LUZI opens a subsidiary in Malaysia with a state-of-the-art production facility, development labs and a sales unit. LUZI Malaysia is located in the sustainable industrial area i-Park Kulai, Johor, which is an hour away from Singapore.
Expansion & internationalisation
with Jürg Koller as Global CEO
Jürg Koller takes over as Global CEO and expands into new markets such as the Middle and Far East, as well as Latin America. The company opens sales offices in the Dominican Republic, Germany, as well as in Belarus, Azerbaijan and, most recently, Dubai. To promote creativity, LUZI opens a creative laboratory in Paris.
