Peter Eschler adapts the sup­ply and ser­vices of Chris­t­ian Eschler Europe AG, to the glob­al needs of the tex­tile chain and its envi­ron­ment. An offer of pro­duc­tion and trade was turned into an offer of trade and ser­vices in train­ing, coach­ing, direc­tor­ships, form­ing a glob­al net­work.


The pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion of embroi­dery fab­ric for the Euro­pean mar­ket was out­sourced to Schweninger Tex­til GmbH in Lus­te­nau (Aus­tria) end of 2015.


In June 2012, two of the strongest and most inno­v­a­tive tex­tile and tech­nol­o­gy firms in the “elas­tic woven and knitwear” seg­ment merged: Schoeller Tex­til AG from Seve­len and the Eschler Group from Büh­ler.

At the end of 2012, Chris­t­ian Eschler Europe AG was found­ed, which took on the mar­ket­ing and sales of lin­gerie fab­rics and the Euro­pean rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Eschler Thaiknit Co. Ltd., under the man­age­ment of Peter Eschler.


Mas­sive struc­tur­al changes in the Swiss tex­tile indus­try and the extreme­ly strong Swiss franc forced the Eschler Group to under­take rad­i­cal restruc­tur­ing in Novem­ber 2011.Both Swiss pro­duc­tion plants are closed and relo­cat­ed to Ger­many and Thai­land.


The joint ven­ture, Eschler Thaiknit Co. Ltd., is found­ed


Alex, Matthias and Peter Eschler become the third gen­er­a­tion to man­age the com­pa­ny.


The cur­tain fac­to­ry, Lehr AG, in Münch­wilen is tak­en over and the knit­ting works is relo­cat­ed from Büh­ler to there.


The com­pa­ny founder, Chris­t­ian Eschler senior, dies, and the com­pa­ny is con­tin­ued by his sons, Kurt and Chris­t­ian Eschler junior.


The com­pa­ny moves to Büh­ler in the can­ton of Appen­zell.


A mechan­i­cal cir­cu­lar knit­ting fac­to­ry is found­ed by Chris­t­ian Eschler senior in St. Gallen.
