BERNINA is and has always been an independent, family-run company. Steckborn has been our headquarters for over 100 years, and will remain so. We have successfully established a manufacturing facility in Thailand as a second location.Our Swiss heritage is one of the main ingredients of our brand. We find that whether you're Swiss or not, the high quality standards and innovative products and services that you'll be a part of as a BERNINA customer will probably rub off on you. One hundred years' experience means the competitive edge, but not forever. We must meet the accelerated changes in the economy, technology, environment and society with new ideas, genuinely felt passion and efficient operating methods.
