Anton Schneider began producing cuckoo clocks from his farmhouse in Schonach in the Black Forest Region of Germany in 1848. The Schneider family business is now in the 6th generation and has been producing high quality cuckoo clocks at its current location since 1952. In the years between 1952 and 1985, the modern factory building was extended in 7 periods of building. Today, the Anton Schneider clock factory is among the most modern and one of the largest cuckoo clock factories in the Black Forest. In Spite of this, the old tradition of doing valuable carving work by hand has been maintained and in the last few years this intricate work has been greatly improved through the intensive training of young woodcarvers under masterful direction.
A love of detail combined with ancient handicraft skills today represent the characteristics of the new generation of high-value cuckoo clocks. Thanks to highly skilled workers in the carpentry shop, the woodcarving shop and in the clock assembly shops, as well as an extremely precise final inspection, it is possible for Anton Schneider to offer customers worldwide a truly full guarantee for a product of high quality, craftsmanship and precision.
