Inspired by a cocktail mixer, the entrepreneur, pioneer and inventor Traugott Oertli developed his first household blender in 1943: the TURMIX original.
A quality Swiss brand was born.
Company founder Traugott Oertli was inspired by the idea of simplifying life in the kitchen. Following the ingenious invention of his TURMIX original, he developed stirrers, fruit centrifuges, deep fryers, infrared grills and many other innovative kitchen and household appliances. Over the course of the decades, TURMIX grew to epitomise high-quality kitchen aids of all kinds. The first espresso machines in Switzerland came from TURMIX, as did the first Nespresso machine, which marked the beginning of a new era of sophisticated coffee enjoyment. The spirit of company founder Traugott Oertli lives on in the TURMIX brand, which continues to stand for durability, reliability and practical benefits. In short, for first-class Swiss quality.
