About us

From the workshop around the corner to the viscosity control world market leader

Dear visitor

The Fasnacht team warmly welcomes you to our web site - great that you are interested in our products and services!

When Hugo Fasnacht laid the foundation stone in 1952 with the founding of our company, the world turned a little more leisurely, at least from today's point of view sometimes the feeling is felt. Even if the challenges in the business environment have changed, we try to keep Hugo Fasnacht's pioneering and ingenuity spirit alive in our daily work in the form of passion and passion.

As a Swiss production, trade and service company that operates worldwide, we strive to be able to offer our customers cutting-edge and comprehensive solutions at attractive prices, and of course "Made in Switzerland".

Bern is the headquarter and home of our Development & Production, Technology & Services and Sales & Administration. In addition, we work very closely with various sales and service partners around the world who sell our products and maintain them professionally.

Over time, Fasnacht has become increasingly specialized in Viscosity Control Systems, serving primarily the printing and packaging industries with high-precision viscosity control systems. Although our systems have often been copied by competitors, they have never been duplicated in terms of quality, price-performance ratio and, above all, control intelligence.

At the beginning of 2016 a new era of Fasnacht has begun. After more than 60 years, the company is no longer family-owned for the first time. In addition, the management was completely replaced.

With the spirit of Hugo Fasnacht, paired with modern and Swiss precision, the way back to the market leader is our declared goal.

Best regards

John Zahm, CEO
