The “Just-in-Time” production philosophy
All our mirror cabinets and illuminated mirrors are Made in Switzerland and produced in our modernised works in Flums (Canton of St. Gallen). Our production system is based on forward-looking “just in time” principles: exactly to customer requirements and orders. This facilitates quality-oriented processes, contributes to reliability and is part of our operating principle for sustainability.
The use of first-class materials is essential for the typical lives of Schneider products - and it saves resources. Here at Schneider, we only work with aluminium. No other material is better suited to products used in bathroom areas, no other material achieves this level of quality and no other boasts such a long service life.
Light: LED power consumption
Mirror cabinets are often used as the only source of light in a bathroom. In all of its product innovations, therefore, Schneider pays particular attention to the quality of light, the rendering of colour and power consumption. In order to meet these stringent requirements, we use only high quality LEDs with an above-average service life of 50,000 hours.
The recyclable cardboard we use for packaging is produced on a one-by-one, product-specific basis. Across the entire production process, we only process what we really need. By working in this way, we safeguard resources and promote sustainability.
