Altenburger family acquires
all shares

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.
