Presentation of the compagny

AMMANN has been created in Switzerland by Messrs Karl Flubacher and Ernst AMMANN at beginning of the 20th century, exactly in 1900, as a family firm being in charge of manufacturing and marketing of curling ribbons called “Bolduc”, cotton and gelatine based product, an item one hundred percent natural and ecological.

During the years, AMMANN became one of the most important manufacturers of “Bolduc” ribbons of the Continent with manufacturing sites in Switzerland, France and Germany.

From this natural cotton and gelatine based product, the technique has evolved to plastic, polypropylene, an ecological and recycling synthetic material.

In view of the favourable economic conditions in Alsace after the second world war, the production was completely transfered in this region.

After Mr. Werni Flubacher, son of a founder member, had retired from business, the Company AMMANN was integrated into the family group AMMANN & Cie.

AMMANN could take advantage of the great experiences of AMMANN & Cie in plastic processing. Considerable investments have been made. AMMANN is equiped with most modern production techniques.

AMMANN’s philosophy and strategy consist in assuring to their customers an optimal service.
Since January 01st 2000, LES RUBANS SANDER has brought their activities to AMMANN, whose firm-name is now AMMANN-SANDER Sàrl.

AMMANN-SANDER has an important and varied stock. Items presented in this catalogue are available from our stocks or in very short delivery time.
