Our history is our future!
Schaetti is a dedicated pioneer - and has been for more than 50 years. Josef Schaetti (see picture) founded his company in March 1957, which would ultimately prove to be the first chapter of a very long and successful story.
Schaetti was the first company to develop thermoplastic powders for use worldwide as textile adhesives within the interlining industry. Since it was founded, the company has been continuously engaged in an innovative development strategy.
The company now has a presence all over the world and in addition to its international locations also boasts a dense network of agents and sales offices.
