Our History

In 1923 Willy Oehme, Nuremberg, founded the Lorito S.A. in Vevey, Switzerland, at the Lake Geneva. At that time the range of products was limited to the Creme Lorito, a universal cleaning agent for the „housewife“ to clean, polish and disinfect wood, leather, linoleum and other types of solid surfaces. The creme is produced to this day. In 1970 his son Otto Oehme (top right picture) took over the company that now had its place of business in Wendelstein south of Nuremberg. The newly founded Otto Oehme GmbH (a limited company) shifted its focus to business clients and broadened its portfolio of products gradually. In 1998 the company moved to the current premises in Allersberg that house managementas well as production. 

To maintain the continued existence of the company Ulla Oehme and Klaus Krisch joined management in 2003. Two years later the company expanded and multiple foreign subsidiaries were founded – at the moment the Otto Oehme GmbH is represented in more than 20 countries. Large-scale consumers in Germany and the EU are supplied by the company’s own private haulage. In the meantime the range of products has been extended to additives, auxiliary equipment and machines. In 2010 Ulla Oehme took over the company shares and is now the full owner of the company. Since 2017 her son Carlos Oehme joined Klaus Krisch in management position.
