As a family company, we accept our responsibility

About Us

Innovation and technological edge

M+C Schiffer is family company in its fourth generation. In more than 125 years, we’ve become one of the world’s leading toothbrush manufacturers, thanks to experience, inventiveness and intelligent corporate decisions. Today, we see ourselves as a partner and system supplier to trade and industry. Our home base in Germany has a key role to play. It is where we research and develop all new products and technologies. It is also where we manufacture the most ambitious products on automated production lines.
Continuity and responsibility are part of our corporate culture. We have a sense of responsibility to our customers, the environment and our employees. In return, everyone has a shared responsibility for keeping our quality promise. Today, we have more than 1,000 qualified employees – our biggest asset – working for us around the globe.

We invest in their continued qualification, as it is our employees who ensure that all procedures and processes meet our quality, performance and service standards. We also invest continuously in the development of new technologies for products and production processes, which is why we have one of the most state-of-the-art manufacturing plants in the sector. These practical competencies consolidate our international reputation as a leading innovator in toothbrush manufacture.
We are an independent global player and will continue to focus in the future on the factors that have already made us strong: innovation strength and technological edge.

Sustainability

A conscious approach to the environment

Responsibility and continuity are basic values in our corporate philosophy. They also apply to our relationship with nature.

  • The company has been certified to DIN EN ISO 14001 for many years and is a model in the region.
  • Our Neustadt/Wied site has also been certified to DIN EN ISO 50001 since 2015. We thereby make an active contribution to the careful use of energy.
  • We avoid environmentally hazardous agents and strive to minimize emissions.
  • Already many years ago we developed an environmentally friendly toothbrush, replacing mineral oil-based plastics with sustainable materials such as  natural fibres or sawdust.
  • For packaging we use FSC-certified materials and recycled paper.
  • We consider the environmental impact of new production procedures and products in advance.
  • We even assess suppliers on the basis of appropriate ecological criteria.
