Müller Ltd Packaging - About us

Müller AG Verpackungen ist the origin of the Müller Group. It was founded in 1897 by tinsmith Ernst Müller in Kleinhüningen (Basle). In the first years following the foundation some 10000 tin cans were produced for the chemical industry in Basle..

Soon this building in Kleinhüningen was too small and so bought Ernst Müller in 1922 bigger premises in Tramstrasse in Münchenstein. To this date this is still the residence of Müller AG.

In Münchenstein an industrial production of mild steel drums up to 200 litres was started. In 1936 the legal form of the company was changed from sole trader to a stock company.

All premises have been expanded and modernized continously to meet increasing requirements.

In 1978 a new plant in Reiden near Luzern was put into operation. This plant produces exclusively 200 litres mild steel drums.

In the plant in Münchenstein tapered and cylindrical mild steel drums are produced: from 10 litres up to 170 litres capacity.

We operate in-house design and our own mecahnical and tool engineering. This infrastructure enables us to fulfill the requirements of our customers quickly, reliably and with high quality.

We economize continously and invest in modern production facilities.

Today the customers of Müller AG Verpackungen are mainly situated in chemical, pharmaceutical, flavor and fragrances, petroleum products, paint and coating industries.
