As time went by ...

In recent years chloralkali plants became larger and larger, and more and more had to be offered on a turnkey basis.

When the contracts exceeded the personnel and financial capacities of the company, KREBS SWISS cooperated with various contractors, who then carried out detailed engineering and were responsible for the implementation of the plant.

Consequently KREBS SWISS concentrated on marketing, sales, basic engineering and supervision of commissioning of chloralkali plants.
