Louis-Ulysse Chopard founded his own workshop in 1860 in Sonvillier, the Swiss Jura. Since 1963, Chopard is owned by the Scheufele family and its headquarters are located in Geneva. The Group is independent and vertically integrated, controlling the entire process from design to distribution.
Over 30 different crafts are practiced in three manufacturing sites with a strong emphasis on in-house training. According to two of its fundamental values, respect and social responsibility, Chopard is strongly committed to various philanthropic organizations. In 2013, Chopard launched “The Journey”; a multi-year programme deepening its commitment to sustainable luxury.
