The St.Gallen site has developed into a place for creation, innovation and tradition. Here, around 200 employees use creativity and state-of-the-art technologies to create not only textile dreams for the catwalks, but also high-tech products. All new ideas are developed and tested in the ultra-modern St.Gallen Innovation and Sample Center. In the process, employees can also draw inspiration from the two fully comprehensive archives of Forster Rohner and Jakob Schlaepfer.
The industrial production of embroidery and other textiles, however, takes place mainly in the company's own 100 percent factories in China, Romania and Bosnia. This global network of production facilities allows the Group not only to have a local presence, but also to offer correspondingly larger volumes competitively on the world market.
The Romanian subsidiary Inter-Spitzen Srl. produces on behalf of the whole group. A big plus of the production in Romania is the dyeing plant integrated in the embroidery production which enables a high degree of flexibility and a wide range of products.
