Step by step, the Neoperl Group also expands its international distribution network with its own agencies and production sites, especially in the Asian markets. The European retail business starts being handled from Switzerland.
In 2004, management of the family business passes to the next generation. From this point onwards, Oliver Denzler and Fabian Wildfang shape the future of the Neoperl Group.
