Müller GmbH - About us

Müller GmbH in Rheinfelden, Germany is part of the Swiss Müller Group, and for some years now has been the worldwide market leader in drums, containers and process equipment modules in stainless steel.
The German operation was founded in Rheinfelden in 1904 as a branch of Gempp + Unold AG, a company based in Basel, Switzerland. In 1965 it was taken over by Müller AG Verpackungen to become Müller GmbH.
For the Müller Group this was the first step beyond the borders of Switzerland.
Just three years later the manufacturing area was expanded, a new building for storing sheet, tube and bar stock was erected and new employee facilities were built. Initially, coated mild steel drums were produced, followed soon by stainless steel drums. In 1989 the manufacture of mild steel products was extended to include process equipment modules in that material. A few years later production at Rheinfelden was restricted to stainless steel only, with the manufacture of mild steel products being concentrated in the other Müller Group plants in Münchenstein and Reiden. One reason for this rationalization was to eliminate possible corrosion due to cross-contamination between mild steel and stainless steel. The business continued to prosper. A second extension was added in 1999, and in 2006 the new office building was completed.
