As of 2017[update], Mammut belongs to Conzzeta AG. Amongst others, Raichle (mountain and trekking shoes), Ajungilak (sleeping bags) and Toko (ski wax) belong to Mammut Sports Group.
In 2011, Mammut obtained a sales volume of 210.8 million CHF. The company is world leader in terms of climbing ropes, together with German company Edelrid. Mammut has about 200 employees at its headquarters and runs many establishments all over the world. The central repository for Europe is in Memmingen, Germany, which has been expanded several times.
Founded by Jakob Tobler in 1916 in Altstätten, Switzerland as "Tobler & Co.", the company originally produced household chemicals. In 1933, the name was abbreviated to Toko, concurrent with their first ski wax product. Changing hands several times, it was made part of Mammut in 2003. In 2010, Toko was sold to Swix Sport AS, renamed Toko-Swix Sport AG and is no longer part of the Mammut Sports Group AG.
