Victorinox - A living legend!
2010 saw the 125th anniversary of Victorinox. The Swiss manufacturer is best known for its excellence in making multifunctional folding knives. Nowadays Victorinox, still a family business, also makes top quality mulitools.
For the well being of nature
The surplus heat energy that is formed on the Victorinox production line, is stored and recycled. It is used to heat the factory itself as well as 120 apartments in the vicinity. All scrap metal formed in cutting the tools is taken back to the steel mill, even the powder that ends up in the tool's cooling water. Victorinox product packaging is minimalistic and when a Victorinox tool arrives in for maintenance or repairs, all of its components can be switched for a new one: snapping a knife blade, for instance, just means the blade will be replaced.
