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.
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.
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.
