Founded in 1877 by Christoph Seilacher and his brother-in-law Karl Schill in Heilbronn, the chemical factory for the manufacture of special products for the leather industry has always been the driving force behind its growth. That is why four years later, the company moved to Feuerbach near Stuttgart in order to work closely with the most important companies in the industry.
Thanks to the creativity of the two entrepreneurs and thanks to the right products and high quality standards, Schill + Seilacher grew rapidly and became known across the borders. The export expanded, so that in 1925 Schill + Seilacher founded another branch in Hamburg, the gateway to the world. The immediate proximity to foreign markets was now ensured. Active research and development at that time already ensured a continuous expansion of the range, which has meanwhile been extended to special chemicals for textile refinement.
