Swiss Made

In 1947, Wilhelm Schmidlin founded the first and so far only steel bathtub factory in Switzerland in Oberarth, near Lucerne. Thirty-eight years later Eduard and Margrit Wullschleger-Schmidlin took over management of the family firm, and Beat and Urs Wullschleger have run the business since 2007.

We are proud of our long tradition of innovation and quality. For this reason, we continue to invest in our production facility in Switzerland and remain fully committed to it. We know that you as our customers and business partners want nothing less than the highest-quality Swiss products and services, and that’s exactly what we aim to give you.


As a family business, we work in accordance with the concept of sustainable development. We minimise the environmental impacts of what we do our as far as possible and are aware of our social responsibility towards our employees and fellow human beings.When taking decisions we consider the generations yet to come, and we set great store by cultivating fair and open relationships with our business partners.


Made-to-measure products

We specialise in turning ideas into reality – your ideas. Our made-to-measure products are divided into two ranges: Vario and Custom Designs.

Vario stands for made-to-measure products which are easy to order, with quick delivery and fixed prices. We guarantee delivery within ten working days; if you choose the Subito option, your product can even be delivered to your location within four working days. Made-to-measure Vario products are available for selected bathtub, shower tray, shower area and washbasin models.

Custom Designs open up a world of endless possibilities. The majority of our bathtubs, shower trays, shower areas and washbasins can be extended, shortened, widened or narrowed. Additional options include custom holes, bevelled, rounded or sharp corners, oblique angles and seamless enamel aprons.


Our new online designer allows you to plan and place your order with a minimum of hassle. Visualise the dimensions, shapes and options online and use the configuration code to order from your specialist retailer. Download the CAD data or a PDF file which can be integrated directly into your plans.

A flange is a 3 cm high enamelled upstand of the bathtub rim which is half-covered by wall tiles. This means no silicone is required in the wall and guarantees a completely waterproof wall join. A flange is a hygienic, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing solution.
