Our History

ECS – a success story which began in 1982

Mr. Ernst Ruch has founded the company in 1982. In the beginning ECS sold different cleaning products, but very soon the company specialized in selling cleaning cards. In short time ECS  won new and internationally well-known customers to grow. In 2006 the company was sold to Mr. Beat Wyss who further developed the cleaning card niche strategy which lead to a significant  growth of the ECS. 2015 Mr. Gunnar Kleinmann took over  the business  to ensure the continuation  of the company.

From 1982 to a world renowned and widely recognized company

From these beginnings, one of the world’s largest manufacturer of special cleaning cards has arisen in recent decades.
