History

Our expertise has a tradition

BANTLEON was founded about 100 years ago. In the early years, it primarily produced leather, hoof and cart greases, cooking oil and wash powder. Today, the activities of the internationally operating Hermann Bantleon GmbH focus on the fields of lubricants, cleaning and corrosion protection, as well as on integrated services for process optimization.
