In 1932, Kurt Schmidt founded a steel articles factory in Solingen, a city which is famous for the manufacturing of cutlery. Jaguar was first introduced as a brand name for hairdressing shears in the late sixties. A short time later, it also became the company's name. This name reflected specialization in producing hairdressing shears and marked the starting point for Jaguar to become one of the leading manufacturers in the world. Zwilling J.A. Henckels, a world-recognized Solingen-based company, has been a strong partner since 1988.
Jaguar works intensively on innovations for hairdressing shears. Jaguar also offers a high-grade range of brushes, and electrical appliances. And with the introduction of the ThermoCut-System, Jaguar TC in 2000, hair cutting has become a wellness treatment.
Our competence is a favorite of professionals in more than 80 countries worldwide.
