Fritz Nauer (1912–1971) was a gentleman of the old school. In 1937 the entrepreneurial businessman began washing out and selling imported sponges from his parent's laundry room in Stäfa on Lake Zurich.
When the source of his business dried up as a result of the after-effects of second world war he switched to polyurethane foam and became a successful manufacturer. This laid the foundation stone for the global network that is today the FoamPartner Group.
Over 75 years later the FoamPartner Group, with its nine branches, is one of the market leaders in polyurethane foam technology.
