The History

Swissvax – the early days

swissvax-historyThe history and tradition of Swissvax, a unique automotive and marine care system which even today still is hand made in Switzerland, reaches back to the 1930’s.

Like many other extraordinary and ingenious products, also the famous Swissvax waxes have originated from a kitchen table – namely the kitchen table of the Swiss family Anwander – as a product originally developed for the very own sophisticated needs of grandfather Anwander.

anwander-laborbuecherIn these early days, the old chemist’s store of the family Anwander in Zürich served as the laboratory and the manufacturing site for the first tins of precious “Antikwachs”, a wax formulation specifically engineered and refined for the care and protection needs of antique furniture and lacquers. Since the first tins of Antikwachs, the Anwander family has dedicated all its passion, ambition and the ultimate sense for perfection to paintwork, lacquers and waxes – a continuous and strenuous pursuit for the finest products in the marketplace.

The nowadays world-renowned automotive waxes were originally developed for the exclusive private use of grandfather Anwander who – like many other successful inventors of the last century – didn’t find a product meeting his sophisticated demands on the market and therefore decided to create his own wax. This first creation was the start of the extraordinary history of a family business which has dedicated itself to the manufacture and production of the finest automotive and marine care products on the market.

Swissvax facilitates the thorough care and durable protection of every type of surface encountered on your vehicle.

Also today, every Swissvax product is hand made in the paintwork factory of the family Anwander where wax pot per wax pot is created and poured by hand. This is a delibrate policy on our part as the highly complex and secret formulations and the sensitive valuable ingredients don’t allow for the application of industrial production processes. We also like to do it this way.
