GELPELL – your partner for quality
For over 15 years, the name GELPELL has stood for high-quality capsules as well as formula processing and the packaging of food supplements and nutrients. Our medium-sized, owner-operated company is based in the Swiss town of Gähwil, south of Lake Constance. From here, we supply partners worldwide quickly and reliably.
Expertise with tradition
The roots of GELPELL go back 150 years in family history of the current owner: as early as the 19th century, her ancestors distinguished themselves as pioneers in the field of nutritional supplements. The well-known doctor Dr. med. Otto Greither, great-grandfather of Kristina Edvinsson, turned his expertise and passion for health into a company in 1916 and founded Salus Haus in Munich.
Subsequent generations were also committed to people’s well-being and focused on high-quality nutritional products: thus, Kristina Edvinsson’s father founded Swiss Caps, the forerunner of one of the largest contract manufacturers of medicines and food supplements in Europe.
GELPELL – capsule expertise from Switzerland
GELPELL’s history begins with its foundation in 2005 and its first commercial production in Gähwil in the Swiss canton of St Gallen in 2007. In 2012, Tomas Edvinsson recognised the company’s potential and became – initially part-time – managing director. In 2015, Tomas and Kristina Edvinsson decided to take over GELPELL AG completely as owners and managing directors.
The new owners invested steadily in the future of their company. Since 2015, GELPELL has been continuously expanding its capacity and developing new products – and is the second largest soft capsule manufacturer in Switzerland. Since 2015, GELPELL has also been offering hard capsules and – as an in-house development – GELPELL® beads.
Today, this medium-sized company manufactures various dosage forms and products on nine production lines. Parallel to the expansion of its capacity, GELPELL is continuously expanding its development department and all of its structures. Thanks to creative ideas and short paths, GELPELL can hold its own against European competition.
