A century of dynamism!

Founded in 1919

IMPAG was founded as a purchasing company for the Swiss textile industry in 1919, its growth being bolstered by operations in the basic chemicals and fuels segments. Over time, it evolved into a global trading company and service enterprise dealing in natural and chemical raw materials and active ingredients. 


Tradition & Change

Thanks to the ongoing optimisation of our extensive product portfolio, a broader presence in Europe and our technical expertise, today we are one of the most successful and reputed providers of raw materials in the markets in which we operate. 

We look back: 100 years of history.

Into the next century!

In 2019, IMPAG celebrated its 100th anniversary, and was able to look back on an eventful and successful history, in which the company has steadily grown and continually rediscovered itself. Employees, customers and partners were enjoying all kinds of anniversary-related festivities all throughout this special anniversary year. 

We are proud of our history! However, even more importantly, we look forward into a dynamic and digital future in which IMPAG wishes to fortify its position as it continues to evolve.

Sustainability & Collaboration

The privately owned IMPAG Group draws upon its tremendous propensity for innovation and advocates important values that embrace sustainability.

This creates a robust foundation for the company’s long-standing, solution-orientated collaboration with customers and supply partners.

Welcome at our new offices in Zurich

Where is this journey taking us?

We aim to create added value for our customers in the Life Science and Materials Science segments and achieve success together, customer focus being a prime consideration.

Our committed IMPAG team has a strong bond with customers and partners alike, and we navigate the ever-evolving world of work with assurance and dynamism.

Technological progress is changing our daily lives and is making what was previously inconceivable entirely possible. Digitalisation is changing and accelerating work processes as well as the manner in which we communicate. Nevertheless, the human factor is still crucial to our operations.

Where is the journey taking us?

Shaping the future

We are shaping the future, ably assisted by our employees, whose skills and commitment are fundamental to our business. Going forward, too, we will continue to rely on a strong team.

We in the IMPAG Group strive to further expand our expertise in the Life Science and Material Science segments and to encourage and motivate one another. Robust growth is important for our independence.

For us, a successful business is synonymous with acting sustainably, utilising resources optimally and thus contributing to a worthwhile future.
