GLOREX was founded in 1974 in Kölliken, canton Aargau, in Switzerland.
Original hand-sewn Swiss dolls represented at that time with a great success the main business of the company. A plastic face and a body made of tricot fabric enable to make easily an Original Swiss cloth doll. With assorted clothes, socks, underwear, accessories and small wigs made of synthetic or real hair attractive little creatures could be made.
Since 1982 the company's headquarter is in Füllinsdorf near Basel. In 1987 the company GLOREX GmbH in Rheinfelden, Germany, was founded. In 1992 the company has moved to Rheinfelden in a new building of 6000 sqm. The doll range has been developed and partly completed with patent-registered innovations. In addition a complete teddy bear range was created. In 1995 Glorex absorbed the company M. Wanke GmbH in Limburg near Frankfurt. With that acquisition GLOREX became one of the world's leading suppliers of doll making items.
