ZUMSTEG by Willisau Switzerland

01. September 2016

Strong together: WILLISAU SWITZERLAND is taking over the ZUMSTEG SWITZERLAND Collection in the course of the succession planning of the so far owner Markus Bischofberger.

Two Swiss institutions are merging. The two design furniture makers are concentrating their 134 years of experience to one strong power. The people from Willisau are perfectly complementing their engineering competence with the exceptional outdoor range from Full-Reuenthal - look forward to veraciously masterly pieces for inside and outside.

WILLISAU SWITZERLAND (Tisch & Stuhl Willisau AG with headquarters in CH-6130 Willisau), largest manufacturer of tables, chairs and furniture in Switzerland is taking over ZUMSTEG SWITZERAND Collection with effect as of 09-01-2016 in the course of the succession planning of Markus Bischofberger (owner) and continues this company as Zumsteg Collection AG, with headquarters in CH-6130 Willisau.


Founded in Switzerland in 1970, ZUMSTEG made a strong name with high-quality, functional indoor and outdoor furniture. Patrick Brunner, CEO of WILLISAU SWITZERLAND, knows that there is a smooth transition from indoor to outdoor in terms of living. This is why he is convinced to complement his interior range wisely by adding garden furniture to his collection. And he is also convinced to skilfully round off the comprehensive material competence of the Willisau team in a new way by processing granite and stainless steel. Anyway: Perfect design, innovative methods and the absolute will to fulfill any customer request have always been the basis of both furniture companies. 


With this take-over, Patrick Brunner, the new Zumsteg CEO does not only invest in the growth of his furniture manufacture WILLISAU SWITZERLAND but rather makes both companies fit for the future: Those looking ahead will stay strong! The brand ZUMSTEG SWITZERLAND will sustain, the production site in Full-Reuenthal will be continued and administration as well as final assembly for both companies will be concentrated in Willisau. Being the former owner, Markus Bischofberger is particularly happy about his Swiss successor - the perfect one. He knows that his Swiss quality furniture is in very good hands and that his pieces will be more and more present on international markets soon thanks to the sales power and the amazing dealer network of WILLISAU SWITZERLAND.  We may quote him as follows: «We are very happy about this development. We see both potential and benefit for both employees and customers. We will actively accompany the integration process and our customers in the future as well».
