PETER ESCHLER

Peter Eschler grew up in Teufen, in Appen­zell Ausser­rho­den, where, he still lives with his fam­i­ly after years of trav­el and train­ing.
After high school and mil­i­tary ser­vice, he stud­ied “tex­tile chem­istry” at Reut­lin­gen Uni­ver­si­ty (Ger­many), and in 1986 he com­plet­ed an addi­tion­al diplo­ma in “Busi­ness eco­nom­ics and mar­ket­ing” at the Nieder­rhein tech­ni­cal uni­ver­si­ty in Mönchenglad­bach (Ger­many). His stud­ies in Reut­lin­gen includ­ed a one-year intern­ship in the USA.
In 1988, he joined the fam­i­ly busi­ness, Chris­t­ian Eschler AG, first work­ing as an assis­tant in process tech­nol­o­gy and then as a sales and mar­ket­ing assis­tant.
In 1990, he and his broth­er Alex and their cousin, Matthias, took on the man­age­ment of Chris­t­ian Eschler AG as well as man­age­ment of the Eschler Group (Chris­t­ian Eschler AG, Eschler Tex­til GmbH, Eschler Thaiknit Co. Ltd.).
After restruc­tur­ing the Eschler Group in 2011 and sell­ing its Euro­pean share in the Schoeller Group, in 2012, he found­ed Chris­t­ian Eschler Europe AG at the end of 2012 to serve Euro­pean cus­tomers in the lin­gerie and embroi­dery indus­try.
In view of the mas­sive struc­tur­al changes in the glob­al tex­tile indus­try, in 2019 he adapt­ed the prod­uct and ser­vice pro­gramme to the new sit­u­a­tion.
