schülke Celebrates 130th Anniversary


schülke is celebrating its 130th anniversary.

The brand, founded by Rudolf Schülke and Julius Mayr in 1889, launched with disinfectant Lysol—which would later help control an epidemic of cholera in Hamburg. The company would release industrial preservative grotan 35 years later.

Celebrating this history, the company rolled out an updated motto—“We Protect Lives Worldwide”—in early 2019, renewing its commitment to innovating and protecting for its customers.
