RAHN wishes you
RAHN wishes you
As we approach the end of the year, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all our customers and partners for their loyalty and the trustful partnerships. In 2023, the whole world faced a challenging economic climate characterized by high inflation and rising interest rates - and so did we.
Despite these adverse external conditions, the EnergyCuring division had a remarkable year, with the inauguration of a brand-new 3D printing applications laboratory at RadLab and the definition of its sustainability strategy and roadmap. The year also saw the launch of the innovative bio-renewable oligomers GENOMER* 3135 and other promising products. All this underlines RAHN's continued efforts and commitment to support our customers.
The Cosmetics division was generally less directly affected by global economic conditions. At the in-cosmetics Global event in Barcelona, RAHN-Cosmetics celebrated the successful launch and deployment of the RAHN-Cosmetic Actives brand. In addition, the launch of two new award-winning RAHN-Cosmetic Actives products, PERFELINE®-FIT and HAIRVIVINE®-PRO, demonstrates our commitment to innovation and RAHN's contribution to the cosmetics industry. More products are in the pipeline to be finalized for launch in 2024.
Another highlight for the RAHN-Group in 2023 is the successful implementation of a cutting-edge CRM system. This technological advance will allow us to streamline our processes and to interact more efficiently and effectively with our customers. We are also in the process of upgrading our ERP system to the latest major release, signalling our continued commitment to leveraging technology for operational excellence.
Last but not least, 2023 marked the 25th anniversary of the founding of RAHN USA Corp. This anniversary allowed us to meet with business partners and customers to celebrate and thank them for how much we have accomplished together over these 25 years.
As 2024 approaches, we are confident that the RAHN-Group will continue its path of solid growth. In fact, our continued investment in key markets and applications will enable us to better support and serve our valued customers. On behalf of the entire RAHN-Group, we wish you and your loved ones a happy Christmas holiday and a great start to the New Year.

What does Christmas mean to you?
" Christmas, to me, is all about family. Reconnecting with extended family of my mom, sister, my in-laws and the nieces and nephews and staying in pajamas with my wife and kids on Christmas day to open presents, laugh and play games, and to enjoy one another. It is taking a break from the normal to remember what is most important and to spend time together. "

Witnessing the positive changes in our lives fills me with intensive gratitude.
My son, with a playful smile, remarks each year: "Looks like I've got some serious reading ahead ;-)" "

RAHN support 2023
Throughout the year, we support various social institutions through the RAHN Foundation.
The Rahn Kulturfonds promote and award outstanding students of Swiss music academies.
As in the last three years, we will be supporting the Swiss project "there-for-trees" with a donation. "there-for-trees" combines reforestation with school education on the subject of climate change.
The “there-for-trees” project helps school pupils in Switzerland develop their own tree-planting campaigns so they can put the right trees in the ground in the right places in their region. By running their own campaigns, pupils gain a better understanding of issues such as climate change, ecosystems, forests, biodiversity and sustainability.
