Rudolph Schoeller founded the company "Schoeller & Söhne" in 1868, one of the first worsted spinning mills in Switzerland. Schoeller expands and takes over the cloth factory in Sevelen in 1954, which now serves as the company's headquarters. The first elastic fabrics for ski clothing – and thus the world's first soft-shell fabric – are soon to be developed under the name "skifans" in this factory.
In 1994, the company became the first manufacturer of active and leisure clothing to receive the Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex. Schoeller is also one of the co-founders of the bluesign system, which has established itself worldwide. In 2008, Schoeller became the first company to receive the bluesign Award.
In 2012, Schoeller merged with the Eschler Group, which specializes in tailor-made customer solutions for knitted fabrics, in order to offer the joint brand partners far-reaching, complementary textile solutions.
The headquarters of Schoeller houses the fully integrated production facility with the departments of weaving, dyeing, lamination and coating. In addition to the state-of-the-art research, development and testing laboratories, there is also the administrative building with design and sales, IT, marketing and bookkeeping.
