About Us


At Acino, we meet and exceed the highest standards for our products while also continuously improving our offering through our own quality culture. Our global quality strategy encompasses all aspects of our business, from the relationships we develop to the products we deliver. And our quality policy greets every visitor and employee at every site entrance in Acino.

Our quality mindset is rooted in our Swiss heritage

Established in Switzerland in 1836 and with a proven track record of producing high-quality products, the deeply rooted high-standard quality pledge is reflected in all of Acino’s activities: from the igniting idea to the final product, from technological development to state-of-the-art production, nothing is left to chance.

Safeguarding a high level of product quality and regulatory compliance is the fundamental objective of Acino.

Each of our products is thoroughly tested to ensure it meets product specifications as well as regulatory standards.
