About us

Carl Mollier's self-named company was founded in 1930 and has been producing innovative cleaning solutions for more than 80 years. We provide cleaning and care solutions for gold, silver, jewellery and precious metals to the film, photo and optical industry as well as the sound and data carrier industry.

Over the course of eight decades we have continually added to our experience, and have always been striving to produce quality at fair prices while permanantly optimizing our expertise and reliability. As a result, we today have a wold-wide base of satisfied clients.

This positive development is mainly owed to Helga Henkel, née Mollier, who took over the well established and successful family business on 1st July 1996. It is chiefly due to her commitment and business acumen that products bearing the "Rekord" company logo are nowadays puchased all over the world.

Our customers appreciate the service we offer as well as our high degree of flexibility and the practical consumer benefits of our products. We also adhere to strict quality control procedures in the production of our care products, and place highest priority on minimizing our products' environmental impact.

In June 2004 Helga Henkel was named a "LOCAL HERO - Mutmacher der Nation" for excellent entrepreneurial accomplishments in difficult times, following a nationwide entrepreneurial development initiative under the patronage of Christian Wulff, the Prime Minister of Lower Saxony,  and Prof. Dr. h.c. Lothar Späth.


Our new stretching frame with a length of nearly 20 meters is the only machine of this model series hitherto existing in  Germany, and constitutes the core of the production process for Carl Mollier GmbH.

Here the impregnated cloth panels, which are later cut into individually sized cloths, are stretched out and very gently dried. The gentle drying not only results in a volumious cloth that is soft to the touch, but also secures the optimal retention of the impregation which loosely envelops the fibres instead of sticking them together.

The machine is equipped with state-of-the-art computer technology and allows for the best possible treatment results as well as exactly reproducible prime quality and considerable energy savings.

For the clients of Carl Mollier GmbH this results in an additional visible and palpable quality increase of the final product.
