Background history

FOS 1886-2016

In 1886, Arnold Schumacher founded a company that would, over time, become a great family tradition of precision tooling. He started his own business by producing razor blades and he was at this time twice more productive than his competitors thanks to an innovative production process.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the multinational company “Gillette” entered the European market and Arnold Schumacher decided to diversify the production with different cutting tools.


With dedication and perseverance, we have preserved this unique know-how, carefully passed on over 5 generations.
