Innovations and patents

Our pioneering spirit drives us forward, every day, in everything we do. We have been developing innovative products and solutions since 1896. And if we can’t find what we need on the market, we simply make it ourselves.

Innovation is our driving force

At Baufritz, we make things work, for your health’s sake. If we are not satisfied with what is available on the market, if materials fail to meet our expectations or products are disappointing, we research and develop our own solutions. We already have a number of patents in different areas, with more in the pipeline. Always with the aim of replacing chemical and contaminated products with truly sustainable, climate-friendly and healthy natural products. Because we are driven by passion and by our pioneering spirit that is alive in each and every one of us. That’s something you won’t find anywhere else in the UK.
