The Chemistry and Packaging Divisions have an international presence and pursue a strategy of differentiation, exploiting growth potential through innovation, global expansion and constant enhancements of their profitability. The Paper Division operates in a fiercely competitive market, and strives to achieve and maintain cost leadership in its sales markets of Switzerland and adjacent border areas.

Current strategic thrusts

  • Expand capacities outside Switzerland to reduce the proportion of Swiss-franc costs.
  • Expand in the growth markets outside Europe.

Further explanations of the strategy and its implementation can be found in the Annual Report.

Brand strategy

Each business division is active in its market under its own consistent brand. Both divisions have been well established as “Zeochem” and “Perlen Packaging” for several years now as reliable business partners in their target markets. The CPH Group AG, the Group’s holding company, is not operationally active, but serves as an umbrella brand towards stakeholders, particularly investors.
