We stand together

– in reaching your goals

We usually say that we were already working towards fulfilling the UN sustainability goal about responsible production before it even existed.

Back in the early 80s our founder, Peer Funk, was selling hazardous chemicals. Peer was up-set about the negative impact of these chemicals on the work environment. Not to mention the careless disposal of waste-water. That is how it all started. In the basement on the pool table mixing water-based, non-hazardous chemicals.

Peer was convinced this was the way ahead. Our CEO, Jacob Funk still recalls how he helped his father finding the right mixture in order to obtain the highest level of cleanliness and at the same time reduce the environmental impact and help create a safer work environment.

To this day, this is still how we formulate new products. Admittedly, there are things we can’t clean. We won’t even try, because it goes against our philosophy, which started out in that basement. Long before the UN developed the Sustainable Development Goals as we know them today.
