Discover the story behind OCC Switzerland.

More than 50 Years of Passion for Practice Hygiene

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the success story of Oro Clean Chemie AG (OCC Switzerland). My name is Jürg Suter and as CEO I have the honor of leading our family business in the second generation. Carrying on the legacy of my parents and transforming our company into a leading global manufacturer of disinfectants is a truly fulfilling task.

Our company history is characterized by 50 years of innovation, passion and competence. These values, paired with typically Swiss characteristics such as quality, precision and innovative strength, form the basis of our efforts to produce the best disinfectants in the world.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far and at the same time strive to optimally prepare the company for future generations.

A Legacy of Excellence

Half a Century of Swiss Disinfectants

From day one, my parents were on a mission to make the world a safer place by protecting healthcare professionals and patients alike from pathogenic microorganisms. In 1969, my father developed his first product, ORO-CLEAN, a phenol-free cleaner for dental aspirating units, and the rest is history. Today, OCC Switzerland is a respected player in the infection control industry, with subsidiaries in the Czech Republic, and Malaysia, and distribution partners in more than 60 countries.

A Commitment to Quality, Innovation, and Environmental Sustainability

As a Swiss family-owned business, we believe in the importance of quality, innovation, and environmental sustainability. That's why we take great pride in manufacturing our disinfectants and cleaning products solely in Switzerland on fully automated production lines and to the highest international standards.

Personal Touch and Tradition

As a family-owned business, we believe in the importance of tradition and a personal touch. Unlike large multinational corporations, we have maintained a close connection with our customers. We understand that professionals across various industries face unique challenges when it comes to disinfectants, and we are always here to listen and provide assistance.

Pushing Boundaries for a Better Tomorrow

We constantly invest in research and development to create and enhance our disinfectants and cleaners. Our goal is to manufacture disinfectants that excel through their broad effective spectrum, short exposure time and unmatched material compatibility.

The Key to Our Success

Our skilled workforce is the driver of our success, and we're proud to have a team that shares my parent’s mission and who is dedicated to ensuring that our customers receive the best possible disinfectants.
