Wernli AG was founded in 1932 by Jakob Wernli in Aarau. With a wooden tape loom, set up in a living room, he produced Wernli’s first bandages. In 1941 the company moved to new premises in Rothrist. A company milestone was the introduction of coloured dressings in 1978, a revolutionary idea in these days. Until 2009, the company was run by Bernhard Wernli, the third generation of the family. Then it was sold to Felix Schönle, a local entrepreneur with a background in Finance and Health Care. Wernli AG has been run by the new owner ever since.

In 2012 WeroClip was founded and started to produce bandage clips. In 2015 Wero Swiss Americas was founded in Jupiter, Florida/USA in order to take care of the ever growing markets in North and South America.
