Mayeri Industries is one of the largest manufacturer of washing and cleaning products In the Baltic States. Mayeri’s roots stretch back to 1889, when the Baltic German Richard Mayer founded in Estonia the first chemical factory in the Baltic countries.
Mayeri’s business philosophy is to produce washing, cleaning and hygiene products, which are effective, but safe for humans and the environment. Hence Mayeri’s mission: to contribute to the maintenance of cleanliness of the Baltic Sea and the Baltic region through the production of environmentally friendly products.
The slogan “Safe for You, safe for the environment” reflects our vision of responsible production. We believe that the washing and cleaning products can be produced without affecting the natural environment negatively. Also, the products must have a minimum environmental impact during their consumption and circulation phases. It is not possible to achieve everything at once – the implementation of advanced technology is expensive. However, moving step by step towards cleaner production and sustainable products, we move closer to the balance with every day. And we do this with our consumers who appreciate the same values and believe in our products.
Product formulas are developed in the company’s specially equipped laboratory by chemists with longstanding expertise. We cooperate with different research institutions, such as the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, and Estonian University of Life Sciences, Plant Protection Institute of St. Petersburg.
In addition to carried out daily laboratory tests on the quality the products are also tested in the laboratories at independent research institutions to ensure stability of product quality level.
