  • Offer Profile
  • More than a century ago, USM was known as a pre-eminent producer of iron works and window fittings. In 1961, Paul Schaerer, grandson of USM founder Ulrich Schaerer, chose to take the company in a new and dramatic direction by transforming the factory from a large, manually-oriented metal production plant into a modern, industrial enterprise.

    Nowadays the Swiss furniture company counts about 400 employees worldwide. Head office and production are still in Münsingen, Switzerland. USM Modular Furniture is also distributed worldwide in more than 50 countries with a network of more than 410 qualified sales partners. USM has established a prominent reputation and international presence with flagship showrooms in Bern, Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, London, Munich, New York, Paris, Stuttgart and Tokyo offering both cultural spaces and support platforms.
