The beginnings in metal
In 1874, master Alfred Stöckli and his two assistants produce the first Stöckli
products in a workshop in Uznach: paraffin lamps, burners, ash trays and metal
pan lids. The small enterprise quickly develops into a flourishing company. In
order to utilise hydraulic power, the production is moved to Netstal. The cookware,
serving utensils and ornaments become known under the name «Stöckli copper».
Later, the range is extended to include air humidifiers, fondue burners and Raclette
First plastic products
In 1956, the company purchases an injection die moulding machine to produce its
first plastic products, such as waste shovels, wash basins, containers and watering
cans. In 1985, the company starts producing plastic waste sorting systems under
the Müllex brand. For the machine and appliance industry, Stöckli also produces
housings and covers.
Metal and plastic in two companies
In order to remain competitive in the metal as well as the plastics industry, the
management makes a visionary decision:. In early 1997, the company is divided
into two firms: the plastics company A. + J. Stöckli AG and Stöckli Metall AG.
Today, more than 130 years after its beginnings as a workshop, A. & J. Stöckli AG
impresses as a modern company in plastics production and trade. A company
with a promising future...
