SCHIPS AG is founded by Helmut Schips. The plant is located in Rorschach, on the edge of Lake Constance in Switzerland. In the beginning, the company specialized in cutting systems for sewing machines in the textile industry to meet customers requirements. SCHIPS AG rapidly developed various complementary parts and equipment, not produced by other major sewing machine manufacturers. SCHIPS AG now builds complete sewing workstations and automated units.

The young company moves from Rorschach into new buildings in Tübach.
