Regulus, which is based in Erlangen, near Nuremberg, Germany, will remain as a standalone operation, the brand will be retained and the production facility kept. It joins Folex’ two sites manufacturing sites, one in Seewen, Switzerland, and the other in Cologne, Germany.


We are delighted to have Regulus as a partner and a film finisher with special technical capabilities and a great competence in various growth markets,” said Folex managing partner Martin Schleußner.
