About Us Overview
At Roberts Swiss Inc., we’ve manufactured precision Swiss parts for more than 60 years. As a family-owned business, we’ve not only survived, but thrived -- because we excel at what we do. And what we do is manufacture the highest-quality precision Swiss parts in a reliable and timely manner.
Roberts Swiss Inc. was founded in 1953 in the city of Chicago by two WWII veterans. Originally known as Roberts Pivots & Needles Inc., the company began making high-end phonograph needles, using some Swiss-type Escomatic machines to manufacture the shafts.
